BUSINESS RESUMES AT KENDALL BUILDERS SQUARE FOLLOWING PARTIAL ROOF COLLAPSE

 SAN ANTONIO, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, Jan. 5, 1993, at approximately 4 p.m. (EST), a 40 x 40 foot section of the roof of the Builders Square located in Kendall, Fla., collapsed.
 The building was immediately evacuated with no injuries to either customers or store personnel.
 It has been determined that the problem occurred as a result of unusually heavy rainfall that caused water build-up in one corner of the building, coupled with water saturation of the site grounds that caused the structural members to fail.
 The collapse of the roof was in no way related to Hurricane Andrew. Following the hurricane, independent engineers certified the Kendall Builders Square building to be safe and structurally sound at that time.
 Business is expected to resume today with outside registers and the entire store should resume operation by Saturday, Jan. 9, 1993.
