TWO of the shops directly affected by flooding at Grand Central on Sunday are still cleaning up today, but the majority of stores are trading as usual. 

A burst water pipe caused flooding at the eastern end of the centre yesterday. 

As a safety precaution, management partially evacuated the centre.

A spokesman for the centre said shops at Grand Central would be trading today, with the exception of two directly affected tenancies.

The burst pipe occurred in the new retail galleria at the centre and water was running through both levels. 

The original, western end of the centre was still trading.
