Permission to Reopen Getting Closer for TC Businesses

Nobody was hurt in the incident, but business is suffering as Horizon Books and the State Theatre remain closed.

A brick pillar began to crumble in Red Ginger Friday evening after two steel beams began to fall.

Horizon Books and the State Theatre were closed as a precaution due to their shared walls.

Construction crews hope to have Red Ginger reinforced enough to allow Horizon and the State Theatre to re-open tomorrow.

The State has moved shows to the Bijou by the Bay while Horizon is hosting book signings outside.

But the loss of the crowds those two bring is being felt down the road as well.

9&10 News’ Eric Lloyd and photojournalist Jeremy Erickson checked back in on the impact and have more details.
