Who is ready for Westside Ventures to open?!? Your in luck! Gabe and Lori Wilson have been working hard and will be open tomorrow! Hours are Monday-Friday 7-7 Saturday 8-8!!! Come on out, get your pizza, hamburgers, drinks, snacks and many if your grocery needs! Can't wait to see you all again!
Over the past 6 weeks, the Wilson's have been working hard, tearing through the destruction and prepping the store for the upcoming rebuild. As of now, the rebuild is scheduled to begin yet this week:-) I want to once again extend my thanks for the support that has been extended to the Wilson's in rebuilding Westside Ventures.
A place where we used to gather, left in ruins after Monday...look forward to begin moving forward:-) With the community rallying behind the Wilson's in support of their family and community establishment.
I want to extend my appreciation to all of you for your efforts in supporting the Wilson's throughout this time of loss. Lori is doing an amazing job updating the community via facebook; however I will do my best to post updates as well. If anyone has any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me @ email@example.com
Some of you have asked, "when will I be able to get my turkey"?
Well unfortunately we have suffered a significant loss. Some have asked "can you open the grocery side"?! The answer to that, unfortunately, is no. We have lost the majority of everything! The restaraunts side is completely destroyed by the fire, the grocery side also destroyed by the heat and the smoke.
As you can see in some of the pictures, the heat has melted everything on the grocery side. The clock above the coolers is burnt, the pizza shop, burnt. With no power it is difficult to show you anything from the restaurant side of things, but some of you have seen the devastation.
Right now our plan is to rebuild. We are hoping our insurance will help us do this. We have a very long road ahead of us.
Gabe, myself, Kian, and Alyssa appreciate all the kind words and support we have received. It truly does mean a lot to us!
We will continue to keep you posted on our progress and again thank you!
Westside Ventures is currently closed due to a kitchen fire which resulted in a total loss. I am asking the Bennington community and surrounding areas to support the Wilson family through this devestating time in sifting through the damage in an attempt to rebuild their business. The aftermath has left the Wilson family without income and we are hoping for generosity from the community throughout this hardship while they work on rebuilding their livelihood.
Westside Ventures has been an asset to the Bennington community and now more than ever needs your support to rebuild and continue serving the Bennington area.
Donations can also be made at any Bennington State Bank Location.
