Five stores in the Chesterfield Mall had their Black Friday sales interrupted by a water main break.
The break affected Express, New York & Company, CJ Banks, Lenscrafters and "I don't want to kiss a llama". A

Students in the Normandy School District are getting an unexpected three-day weekend thanks to a water main that burst near the UMSL campus Thursday.
The main has been repaired, but a boil order is in effect for about 2,200 Missouri American water customers. That includes parts of Bel Ridge, Belle Rive, Bel Nor, Normandy and St. John.
As a result, all schools in the Normandy School District will be closed Friday.
Other schools in the affected area are open, but school leaders are asking students to bring a bottle of drinking water with them.
The UMSL campus had shut down on Thursday because of the break, canceling day and evening classes. University officials say even though they are still under a boil order, classes will resume Friday morning.
Missouri American officials say they hope to life the boil order Friday afternoon.
St. Louis City Water and Street crews are being credited for their fast work after a water main break in downtown.
The pipe burst in the early afternoon. Water crews were forced to dig out a large hole in the middle of Clark Street in front of the police headquarters. Work was initially planned to carry into the night, causing traffic problems as fans head downtown for the Cardinals and Blues games.
Instead, crews repaired the main and placed steel plates over the hole so they could reopen the road. Work to fill in the hole will happen at a later time.

More than 120-thousand customers in eastern and central St. Charles County were affected. Missouri American Water customers were not affected.
There is an emergency water conservation order for residents in the cities of St. Peters and St. Charles.
Officials say there is a large water main break in the secondary supply line from St. Louis city. Crews are already on the scene making repairs. Customers in St. Peters and St. Charles are asked to use water only for essential needs until the situation is resolved.

A water main ruptured below Big Bend immediately north of Manchester Road. The break has forced the closure of Big Bends two, "through" lanes. Drivers will still be able to continue southbound on Big Bend across Manchester, but will have to share a lane that is normally dedicated to left turns onto Manchester.
Officials say about 25,000 cars and trucks drive this section of Big Bend everyday. Motorists are encouraged to avoid the area this evening.
A main throughway in north St. Louis was closed for hours today as crews dealt with a road collapse.
It appears that a fire line broke a water pipe under the road near the intersection of North Broadway and North Market. The broken pipe opened up a hole in the street that is about 80 feet long, 10 feet wife, and 8 feet deep.
North Broadway has been reopened, but the southbound lanes remain closed.
All lanes of Interstate 70 have reopened after a water main break near Jennings Station Road caused a large sink hole to form Wednesday afternoon.
Traffic on westbound I-70 was down to one lane through rush hour and much of the evening.
Missouri American Water crews worked well into the night to fill the hole, re-pave the road and reroute water to local customers.
Water Company Spokesperson Ann Dettmer says the 12 inch line broke because it was old and overused. Dettmer says as the ground dries up, it doesn't provide as much support.
Engineers will consider whether to replace the main or reroute water service around it permanently.
