Coffee shop has reopened already

S trong efforts by all involved to save Scotties Coffee Shop from Monday morning’s fire paid off — the retail store in the front was running by Tuesday, and locals were dining in the restaurant by Wednesday morning. The establishment was only minimally hurt, with minor smoke and ceiling damage, owner Thomas Scott said.

As an operator used in an excavator tore down the former L.E. Roberts Jewelers building and All In One Exchange pawn shop, he was very careful to protect Scotties. Though several small pieces of rubble fell on the coffee shop’s roof and through its awning, the building came out essentially unscathed.

Scott and several others spent Tuesday cleaning the shop and airing it out. Scott had to wait for the county to come in and check things out before he could start serving food.

Scott was grateful to firefighters and appreciated the job they did in fighting the fire and protecting his business.
