Cleveland County Store Destroyed By Tornado Reopens

Just in case you missed this story out of Oklahoma, here's a store that reopened seven months after the storm.

That's seven months with no income for the business owner.

That's seven months that customers were shopping somewhere else.

That's seven months that the store had to rely on insurance to rebuild.

That's seven months of getting building supplies and construction experts to work amid competition from other fires, floods, wind storms, etc.

Now, the question is, if this had been YOUR story, what would you have done?

If you were the owner, would you rebuild? COULD you rebuild?

If you were the customer, could you drive another 15 miles for seven months and would you drive another 15 miles less when the store reopens?

Plan now ... Storm season starts in less than seven months.
