On the heels of the Hardee's in Sanford reopening, another tornado-damaged business is also hard at work putting things back to normal.
The Ferguson plumbing and waterworks wholesaler will open a temporary location for its Raleigh branch on Monday. The company's office on Yonkers Road sustained heavy damage (pictured here) in the April 16 tornado. Customers and employees in the building at the time huddled together in a bathroom, and no one was injured.
"All in all, we were lucky," said store manager Sharon Cooper. "We had no loss of life. We lost our roof, not our talent."
The company says the building on Yonkers Road will have to be rebuilt. It anticipates reopening there in November. Until then, the company will operate out of its temporary space at 2728 Capital Blvd. Showroom customers are currently being serviced by the company's Chapel Hill location.
