On Thursday, mall management thanked Pacific Power and Lloyd Center staff for working on the repairs following the fire on August 6.
"Their dedication and tireless effort is a testament to Lloyd Center’s resilience and our continued longevity in Portland,” said Ann Grimmer, the mall's marketing director.
The ice rink will stay closed for an extra few days, through September 5, as staff work to refreeze the space.
No details have been given yet on the extent of the damage caused by flames and smoke or exactly what started the fire. Portland Fire & Rescue officials said the fire started in a generator room and was extinguished by sprinklers. The mall was evacuated due to smoke and power was shut off. There were no injuries reported.
The fire and temporary closure was just the latest blow for the mall. It had already been struggling as multiple major chains have closed their doors there, including Nordstrom, Sears, Marshalls and most recently Macy's in November of 2020.
