A small fire shut down Sola Café and Antoinette's Salon in Bozeman months ago, but now business is back on.
Sola celebrated their long-awaited re-open Sunday, to packed crowds. Says owner Tiffany Lach, "It's been a week of hugs and smiles and so gratifying to realize that people were waiting for us to open again, and that they came back right away."
And Antoinette's Salon next door prepares for their grand opening this Tuesday. Owner Antoinette Castle says the road to re-opening has been difficult.
"It (the fire) pretty much ruined it, it destroyed everything in here, had to re-do the floors, walls, everything."
But Antoinette says her customers have remained loyal.
"Clients have been very excited that I'm re-opening and I hope everyone will come back...it's been good support."
