PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A high-end Philadelphia department store says it is rebuilding its tailor shop after a fire ruined millions of dollars in merchandise.

Philly.com reports (https://bit.ly/1NgqkhA ) a small fire broke out in the fifth-floor of Boyds on Nov. 30, triggering the sprinkler system. Clothing and other items were destroyed. The exact amount is still being assessed.

The retailer says water seeped into the fourth floor, destroying all of the men’s and women’s clothing in the tailor shop. The pick-up area and the men’s Big and Tall section were also ruined.

The store closed for a week but has since reopened just in time for the holiday shopping rush.

Tailors are now working throughout the building as the custom tailor shop is rebuilt. Customers whose items were damaged are being contacted.
