Retailers who were abruptly shut down after a hailstorm wrecked Colorado Mills mall in Lakewood are hiring now for its expected re-opening in November.

The Jefferson County Human Services, Business and Workforce Center is hosting a hiring event from 2 to 4 p.m. Oct. 24 specifically for the retail stores that had to shutter following a May 8 hailstorm that left the Lakewood mall badly damaged.

Most of the mall has been closed since then. Earlier this month, the mall's property owner, Simon Property Group (NYSE: SPG), said some of the mall's exterior stores opened for business, including Yoga Pod, Dick's Sporting Goods, Yard House, Super Target, JumpStreet and the UA Colorado Mills Stadium 16 movie theater.
