Water main break forces closure of Paramus Park Mall

A water main break at the Paramus Park Mall has forced the shopping center to close for the day.

Officials say the break occurred overnight in the parking lot near Macy's. In order to repair the break, water needed to be shut off to the mall, forcing its closure.

A spokesperson for the Paramus Park Mall says they are hoping to have the problem fixed today and reopen tomorrow. Meanwhile, the mall is working with the Town of Paramus to test the water.

Shoppers are being urged to check the mall's website, Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates.
