May 23, 2012 7:07 am
Lissa Harris and Julie Reischel report in the Watershed Post the rebuilding of Margaretville continues, nearly nine months after the devastation caused by Tropical Storm Irene in August 2011. Freshtown, the town's grocery store, will reopen Wednesday morning, according to employees, and the Freshtown deli will re-open later in the week. The Cheese Barrel, a cafe and gourmet grocer located on Main Street re-opened in its original space, now fully renovated with hardwood floors and a new layout, on Sat., May 19. Store owner Sue Ihlo moved the cafe across the street following the storm, and operated from that location since last fall. Read about Margaretville's storm recovery in the Watershed Post.
