Store roof collapse closes Cartersville, Ga. store

CARTERSVILLE, Ga. - A big store in a shopping center in Cartersville, Ga. is closed because the roof collapsed after a heavy storm.

The storm that dumped several inches of rain in the Cartersville area apparently caused the roof to collapse at the Hobby Lobby store in the Market Square shopping center Sunday night.

The roof collapse also brought down a large chunk of the back wall of the store.

A Cartersville fire captain said the damaged area is about 50 feet by 70 feet. The damage was being assessed on Monday and it's not known when the store will reopen.
