DYERSBURG, Tenn. — The owner of Carousel Place in Dyersburg, said they are rebuilding after ice melt damages local businesses. Owner Jimmy Cooper said it started Saturday when Dyersburg Fire Department responded to a call at the shopping center saying water was leaking from the roof. “When I got there it looked like it was raining indoors,” said Cooper. He said all twelve of the businesses located in the shopping center sustained water damage, and the electricity had to be shut off. Since then nine business have relocated due to the extent of the damage. “A lot of tenants have moved out just as a precautionary measures,” said Cooper. Residents said they hope the repairs come quickly, because there are not many places similar to this center in town. “Dyersburg doesn’t have that much, and we need everything we can get to be open and going,” said Jill Cooley. Cooper said it could take three weeks to three months before business are back to normal.
