It’s been two years, two months and four days since the cold beer store at the Empire Inn & Suites (formerly Knights Inn) burned down during the massive downtown fire on May 19, 2018 that also destroyed the Christie’s Office Plus building and damaged the recently reopened Massey Manor.
After clearing the rubble and constructing a new building, the beer vendor on Rosser Avenue finally reopened Friday afternoon.
Many of the employees from the old vendor are being brought back to work at the new building, manager Hamul Patel said.
He would have liked to hold a grand opening, but COVID-19 put a damper on those plans. With the drive-thru area and parking lot are still waiting to be paved as well, a soft opening was decided on instead.
The hours for the rebuilt cold beer store will be from 10 a.m. to midnight from Sunday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
