A year after re-opening, business going well for locker plant
What a difference a year makes.
At about this time last year, Amanda and Whitman Briard were getting ready to re-open the Mills Locker Plant.
In July 2010, the Briards lost the plant to a fire that destroyed the entire building.
It didn't take them long, though, to decide that they were going to start the business back up.
"Everything happened so fast," Amanda said. "We tell people that maybe we should've taken a trip (after the fire) to think about it."
