Another two businesses in Bay County that were affected by Hurricane Michael. Have opened back up for normal business hours after remodeling.
In this weeks open for biz. Sponsored by GED Lawyers. Chris Marchand focuses on Cook Portable Buildings and Gary’s Oyster Shack.
When Michael blew in and out of our area almost a year ago. It took with it a lot of small portable buildings, but thanks to Cook Portable Buildings residents were able to find a replacement in a timely manner.
Cook sells some of the highest quality portable buildings available. They also have utility buildings, barn and lofted buildings and garden sheds.
Local dealer Bridget Pollard said it took a little elbow grease to get open but they are happy to be back serving the community.
She said, “So when we did finally get here my office was still standing which was amazing was just knocked off the blocks a little bit so we had to fix that there was just debris all over the lot, of course like a house and everything else around here still doing some land clearing still trying to get our fence repaired and things like that here it is a year later but we were able to open for business and we’re happy to be here”.
