Café restoration underway

Dear Editor:

On Sunday, Jan. 7 our restaurant flooded from a burst pipe just below the ceiling which caused extensive damage to the interior.

The walls,  floors, and part of the ceiling had to be pulled out so that dryers could reach all areas preventing any future possible mould. It took almost a month just for the teardown and drying process alone.

Due to circumstance and some setbacks along the way, we are still under restoration.

Almost every repair must be brought up to code which means a lot of inspections from different authorities:  Health, Safety, Fire, and City just to name a few.

Those involved have been working very hard together to help restore our restaurant to a new level.

We have been doing our best to stay actively involved assisting in any way we can to get our business back up and running again as soon as possible.

Not only do we miss our customers and our staff, we also miss our sense of community.

Cozy Bay Seafood Café has been our livelihood for the past 12 years now.

At this point, we would like to express our sincere thanks to everyone for all of your kind words of support.

We appreciate your patience and are so excited for you to join us again soon in our newly renovated fish and chip shop in Summerland.

Our estimated date of re-opening is the first week of May.

Pam Johnson and Michelle Stephen
