SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

Goodwill officials say crews have repaired several holes in the roof of one of their stores in Summerville following the winter weather.

According to officials, several icy pine tree limbs punctured the roof of the store on Trolley Road creating 17 holes.

Store managers said they heard the crashing limbs just before lunch Wednesday.

Officials say the store was eventually closed around 1:30 p.m. to shoppers, but employees worked hard to rearrange racks so the store could open Thursday. One section of the store was blocked off due to leaking Thursday.

A press release states that despite water and leaking inside, none of the donations or products were ruined, and shoppers were  welcomed back into the store at 10 a.m. on Thursday.
