Today on Views of the Neighborhood I want to give you a glimpse of a few of the merchants who are still not in their buildings but who have decided to start on the road to recovery their own way. Most businesses in Port Aransas lost their buildings. A few have decided to open with some temporary accommodations. I hope you enjoy the view.
The United States Post Office is up and running in temporary buildings on the original site but opposite the damaged building.
Ace Hardware pulled in a trailer and several Pods and now supply basic hardware items. The original store is behind the trailer and being worked on.
Coffee Waves is our local version of Starbucks. It is still not ready for use.
But you can still get a coffee in the parking lot. Their trailer is up and running.
My bank is open in a temporary trailer which is in front of the bank building.
The design Center is open for consultations. Their branch in Corpus Christi has the inventory.
Billy Joes is open with a food trailer. Billy Joe served free Thanksgiving meals on thanksgiving Day out of this trailer.
The Fly It Port A kite store is selling their kites on the front parking lot of the store. The store itself is under renovation.
