After being destroyed by the historic flood of May 2010, many people wondered if Opry Mills Mall would return to Nashville.
Since re-opening last March, nearly two years after the devastating flood, tourists and shoppers have flocked to the one million square feet of retail space.
Nashville's News 2 recently sat down with the mall's general manager Jad Murphy who said the mall is moving full steam ahead for a big summer.
"We have three stores under construction right now," Murphy he said, adding, "We have Chili's in the food court, we've got the Limited Outlet [that recently opened] which is the first in Tennessee and we also have H&M. [The] H&M will also be the first Tennessee store as well."
Murphy said he is hopeful with the opening of the new Music City Center, which is set to open next week that visitors will also come check out the mall.
"It can't hurt, it's bringing more traffic to the city, which is exactly what we want. the Music City is getting more and more people and when people come to a city, they love to shop," he said.
H&M is scheduled to open at Opry Mills, which originally opened in 2000 on the former site of the Opryland theme park, on June 6.
Beginning at Noon on opening day, the store will offer the first 300 shoppers in line an H&M T-shirt and an Access to Fashion Pass, valued from $10 to $300.
Currently the Opry Mills Mall boasts more than 200 stores.
