    Crews work to repair a broken water main near the Baker's Centre shopping complex in Tioga.

    Businesses in a Philadelphia shopping center damaged by a water main break are back open a week after the flooding forced them to close.

    Dollar Plus and Hair Buzz in the Baker's Centre on the 3400 block of Fox Street reopened Thursday, according to officials with the Philadelphia Water Department.

    The two shops were the last of the Tioga complex's five shops to open their doors to customers.

    ShopRite, Ross and a liquor store were back in business earlier this week.

    Water department crews are continuing to work on the 48-inch main, which broke around 5:30 a.m. Jan. 11.

    The water damaged all five stores in the complex and even caused rescue crews to use small rafts to get ShopRite employees out of the store.
