Schoony’s Latest News

“We all really appreciate the outpouring of support from the community,” Schoony’s Bob Schoonmaker said. People have been stopping in and offering to help since before the fire was even fully extinguished and Dorie, Rachel and Renee wanted to thank everyone for their help. Schoonmaker said Sunday night he had been in touch with his insurance company representative the night of the fire and preparations for extensive repairs were already under way.

“They’re going to start tearing it down tomorrow,” Schoonmaker said. The heavily damaged roof and rafters are coming off and the interior walls will be taken down to the studs after the store is cleared out. Schoonmaker said the floors will also have to be replaced along with the electrical service.

Looking to the bright side he said, “At least now everything will be new, it will be done the right way 100 percent.”

Schoonmaker said he had been informed the “worst case” for the work was four to five months. “We’re looking forward to rebuilding and reopening,” he said.
