Local businesses rise from the ashes following August fire in Kasson
(ABC 6 News) – Daisy Mae, Cherished Antiques, and TGs Recreated were under one roof until a fire happened in late August, destroying the building where all businesses were. Business owners had the grand opening of the new space on October 1st.
"The feedback has just been amazing, everyone really likes our space and is excited to have us back and open," Kim Rudlong, owner of Daisy Mae said.
The space is also 4,000 square feet. Much more room than the previous spot which was 2,500. Kim views this space as not only a fresh start, but also as a silver lining, as the fire’s aftermath brought them many challenges these last few weeks.
"It’s fun to take the knowledge from before at the old store and move forward into this building and be able to have brand new items, the new store is brand new items that no one’s seen before," Rudlong said.
This store is open seven days a week.
