PHOENIX - Talking Stick Resort will be closed through September, the resort said today.
This comes nearly a month after an Aug. 10 storm knocked out the power and caused flooding at Talking Stick Resort and Casino.
Initially supposed to reopen on Aug. 19, the resort said on August 24 there was no set reopening date.
The resort said repairs to the electrical power system are extending the closure through the end of September. In addition, it's updating areas of the resort and casino that have remained the same since it opened in 2010.
Full statement from Talking Stick:
Ongoing repairs to the electrical power system at Talking Stick Resort will require further closure of the property through the month of September. Employees and outside personnel continue work around the clock to restore power. Moreover, this time has afforded the opportunity to refresh areas of the resort and casino unchanged since the resort’s opening in 2010.
Management continues to assist and support employees as we collectively work toward restoring operations. In the interim, we want to express our gratitude for the patience demonstrated throughout this time and the hard work continually done on our behalf.
Further, while Talking Stick Resort remains temporarily closed, Talking Stick Golf Club has reopened its North Course, returning the club to full operations and regular business hours.
