NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
Who can forget the stunning images of the entire Opry Mills complex under water and destroyed by the May 2010 flood?
Well, now a much prettier picture is emerging on the outside and officials offered a sneak peek inside Thursday.
The best part about the opening is it will put a lot of people back to work.
"We are excited so that we get the opportunity to reopen in the market, put people back to work and become the catalyst for the city of Nashville again," Opry Mills General Manager Jad Murphy said.
When the entire mall reopens in March 2012, shoppers will see several new stores including: Merrell, Coach Men's, Cole Haan, Converse, DKNY, Guess, Michael Kors, Polo Ralph Lauren, New York and Company, Not Your Daughter's Jeans, Veda Bradley and Zumiez.
"Hundreds of people have already been hired at the stores that have already been holding job fairs. Thousands of people will be needed to reopen and operate the center very shortly," Murphy said.
Businesses that will reopen early include Regal Cinemas and I-Max, Dave and Buster's, V-F outlet and Sun and Skin Sport.

Dave and Buster's hosted a move-in party Thursday morning after crews unloaded more than 12 semi-trucks full of new games, furniture, token booths, kitchen supplies and equipment.
Mall officials tell Channel 4 that Opry Mills is on schedule to open more than 200 outlet and retails stores on March 29, 2012.
