Nashville's flooded Opry Mills mall will reopen several anchor stores in time for the 2011 holiday season. The mall's official reopening date is March 29, 2012, but the 20-screen Regal Cinemas movie theater and three other tenants will reopen earlier, according to a news release from The Mills company. The mall was heavily damaged in May 2010 when the nearby Cumberland River overflowed its banks after record rainfall hit Nashville.
