(ABC 6 News) After the partial collapse of the roof and the closing of the Mason City Walmart, the store has now re-opened for business.

The store closed most of the day Saturday, all day Sunday and Monday morning for crews to fix the roof after part of it caved in following a downpour early Saturday.

A Walmart spokesperson tells ABC 6 News that local inspectors working with Walmart management determined the area of the collapse was safe for employees and shoppers after crews worked through the weekend to repair the damage. 

Mason City got nearly 3 inches of rain Saturday morning which caused the store to evacuate all employees and customers after part of the roof came down. No one was hurt in the accident.
