In a post on its Facebook page, the establishment stated that it "will re-open for business by Labor Day, if not sooner," and that it is currently hiring staff.

In the early morning hours of April 11, a fire caused heavy damage to the storage and attic areas, and smoke and heat damage were evident throughout the building. The fire produced plumes of black smoke from multiple sides of the building, and flames shot through the roof..
The building was unoccupied at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.
