Jensen’s hopes to reopen soon
In a message posted on Jensen’s Facebook page on March 17, Matt Zack wrote that “the shoring permits were approved and the repair work on the store started today!
“Thanks to our amazing contractors, we anticipate these repairs will be completed relatively quickly! A secondary reinspection will then be required to confirm the entire building is in good condition and that the ‘red-tag’ status can be removed.”
Zack added that “the management team and myself have been working tirelessly with various authorities and officials to fast-track inspections, repairs, reinspections – and shoveling snow from the roof.
“We are very hopeful the reinspection will be favorable and we will be able to reopen soon!”
On March 7 a post on the Jensen’s Facebook page read, “We are beyond excited to announce that our food trucks were finally granted access up the mountain! Both Cedar Glen and Running Springs received extra-large food shipments this morning!” The post went on to say that teams were working to restock the shelves as quickly as possible.
Zack’s upbeat message on St. Patrick’s Day concluded, “I want to thank each and every one of you for all the amazing and beautiful messages we have received over the past few weeks! (We) appreciate these more than we can ever describe. We look forward to sharing more positive news with you as we continue to recover.”
