Canadian specialty store lucky to reopen after building was wrecked by fire

The Goldstream News Gazette in Langford, British Columbia, announced that a comics store operating in the neighborhood at a building devastated by a fire succeeded in reopening after 2 years:
Two years and 24 days after the building was gutted by fire, Curious Comics has returned to 844 Goldstream Ave.

The store, which has been run in Langford since 2010, was forced to shut down after a fire broke out in one of the residential units above the store on Oct. 8, 2020. The resulting smoke and water damage from dousing the fire rendered the building uninhabitable, displacing residents and the comic book store below.

Now residents are slowly moving back in and the store officially reopened Nov. 1. Owner James Watson said one of the biggest issues has been how long the repairs took to get done. Insurance helped cover some of the costs, but it ran out as one year stretched into two.

[...] Both Layden and Watson said a lot of things have changed in Langford since 2020. Watson said with new housing and other developments like the post-secondary campus just down the road at the intersection of Goldstream Avenue and Peatt Road, it should be an exciting time for the comic book store.
They're certainly lucky to make a comeback after a bad incident occurred. Now, let's hope they're able to gather more new customers again.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
