UPDATE: Mishawaka Home Depot expected to reopen Tuesday


After being closed due to concerns about snow on the roof since Thursday, the Home Depot store in Mishawaka is expected to reopen Tuesday morning.

The Mishawaka Fire Department was called to the store at Indian Ridge Blvd. and Main Street around 11:00 am Thursday about the concerns.

"There were people at the time in the building [and] they evacuated right away," Mishawaka Fire Department Captain Ray Schultz said. "It was pretty loud so they knew to get out." There was no leaking inside the store.

Firefighters decided against going onto the roof to remove the snow directly out of concern for its stability. Crews have been seen working to remove the snow. On Monday afternoon, a Home Depot spokesperson says the store has been inspected and will reopen Tuesday morning at 6:00 a.m.
