Tornado

On February 5, 2008, the Hickory Ridge Mall was hit by a tornado. The Sears store, the Macy's store, and the mall's main entrance were heavily damaged, but despite an initial statement from management that the mall would remain closed "indefinitely" for cleanup, temporary repairs made at record speed allowed Sears to reopen on Sunday, February 10, 2008. Significant repairs and restorations will still be required, however. Several people were injured. A spokesperson for the state's Emergency Management Agency said that one person was killed however, it was never confirmed although three people were killed at a warehouse near the mall. Debris from the mall, in the form of insulating foam, was scattered all over the Memphismarker area, following the storm path northeastward at least to the Wolfchase area.

Aerial images show a large hole in the center of Macy's, while the north wall of Sears is missing. Damage to the central portions of the mall is hard to notice, but video taken from inside immediately following the tornado showed minor flooding within the building due to roof damage. Macy's announced it would not reopen due to damage to the building. The mall is expected to open back on October 28, 2009; according to the ex-vice president Patrick Jacobs.
