Jamestown Mall reopens after 3-week closure
(KTVI) -After nearly a three-week closure, Jamestown Mall reopened on Friday.
The mall was shut down on December 20 because parts of the building were not properly heated.
The closure did not affect Macy’s, Sears Tire and Auto Center, JC Penney or Dillard’s.
Code Enforcement inspectors found the temperatures in the mall was 59° on December 20th. Commercial building code requires a temperature of at least 68°.
The mall was also shuttered by the county on November 27, when temps were recorded at 48°. The shopping area reopened two days later after management restored service with Laclede Gas. The mall’s common areas are heated with gas. The stores are electrically heated.
