A sinkhole that opened on Sept. 1 on the parking lot of the Berkshire Square shopping center in Wyomissing grew overnight.

The hole originally spread across parts of four parking spaces and swallowed part of a tree and some other landscaping, but it grew overnight into Thursday to cover a larger area.

Businesses in the shopping center include Petco, Redner's Fresh Market, Staples, and Walmart. They have not been impacted by the sinkhole.
