Now that we are four plus months after the storm. We are slowly getting back to a resemblance of what things looked like pre-hurricane Michael.
More businesses are opening up and now benefiting from one another.
Change is happening all around the panhandle. Up on Hwy 390 one local business is getting back open that other businesses are benefiting from.
Lets Talk Dirt located on Hwy 390 just west of Cato road has re-opened. Now that they have their property clear of debris and can start filling it with various fills.
A lot of local residents and landscape companies use Lets Talk Dirt to acquire mushroom compost, lawn sand, planting mix and cypress and red mulch.
Lets Talk Dirt is open Tuesday thru Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Right down Hwy 390 at the intersection of Hwy 390 and Hwy 77 is the Lynn Haven Walgreens.
Since the storm the Lynn Haven Walgreens has been serving it’s customers out of a mobile pharmacy located in the parking lot due to damage to their store. Now, the renovations inside their building on Hwy 77 are complete. The store is open during regular business hours which are 6 a.m. to midnight and the pharmacy is open 8:00 a.m. till 10:00 p.m. both 7 days a week.
Store manager Matt Finch said, they are just happy they are back open to help out a community that just wants normal once again.
We are happy to get back open and are happy and our doors are open again for people to have that little bit of normalcy coming in and seeing a nicely remodeled store will help with that.
