GOLDEN, Colo. – Colorado Mills Mall reopened for business more than five months after a devastating hail storm forced the mall to close.

The mall opened its doors at 10 a.m. Tuesday, but not every store is open for business. Some of the stores will welcome back shoppers in December.

During a tour of the closed mall Monday, Denver7 cameras captured closed off corridors still under repair. But officials said they would have the majority of common areas open, safe and functional for holiday shopping season.

The May hailstorm tore holes through the building's roof, causing extensive water damage throughout the complex.

The mall will open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day of the week, but will close on Thanksgiving. It will be open on Black Friday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The mall will operate with standard hours instead of extended hours this holiday season.

Repairs to the mall will continue into the new year.
