Job fair for ex-Colorado Mills employees

Parts of the roof caved in. Dozens of stores flooded. Merchandise was ruined. It was not a good scene inside the Colorado Mills Mall back on May 8th when a hail storm hit Lakewood.

LAKEWOOD - Colorado Mills Mall is still closed with no signs of opening soon after a May 8 hail storm shattered skylights, broke through parts of the roof and flooded stores.

Scores of people who worked at the 1.4 million square foot complex have been on the sidelines since.

Now, the Colorado Department of Labor and Jefferson County's American Job Center are stepping in to help out.

They're hosting a job fair from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Wednesday at the Marriott Denver West.

More than 20 companies and government agencies like the City of Lakewood, Ameristar, and HomeAdvisor say they are looking to hire people who are out of work after the storm.

They will also connect former Colorado Mills employees to services like unemployment
insurance and health insurance.

Don't worry if you can't make it down, or if you missed the job fair.

You just need to get in touch with the American Job Center
