Popular New England meat market reopens after sewer line rupture causes 2-month closure
KITTERY, ME. — After a two-month closure, Carl's Meat Market has officially reopened for business.
The store, which was forced to close for two months due to a massive sewer line failure, reopened for business on Friday, according to Seacoastonline.
The sewer line rupture reportedly flooded the market with thousands of gallons of raw sewage back in January. It cost the business nearly $200,000 in property damage and resulted in 17 employees being laid off.
The market is set to operate under a "soft open," for deli and craft beer sales Friday, according to co-owner Jim Spencer. It is scheduled to be fully reopened early next week with the installment of a newly renovated kitchen.
