Palm Beach Outlets’ food court and restaurants on the mall property closed Thursday afternoon, after a truck accident across the street.

Officials said a truck hit a tree, breaking the city’s main water line, which serves the outlet mall.

 

Whole Foods Market was among the businesses that closed because of the water main break, according to the upscale grocer’s website.

The city said it was doing its best to fix the issue and get water running as soon as possible.

All of the stores at the mall remained open.
