Store open for busi­ness af­ter ve­hi­cle crash

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

Ex­cept for a ply­wood wall where a door used to be it’s busi­ness as usual for a Kent Street busi­ness that had a ve­hi­cle crash through its store­front Mon­day night.

On Tues­day, Stephen He­garty, man­ager of De­nis Of­fice Sup­plies and Fur­ni­ture, said he didn’t know when that store­front would be re­placed.

“I guess that’s all in the works right now,” he said.

He­garty was getting ready to close the store Mon­day when an SUV crashed through the en­trance on Kent Street at around 5:30 p.m.

No one was in­jured, but the SUV took out most of the en­trance.

By Tues­day morn­ing, a wall of ply­wood blocked off the en­trance while in­side there was mi­nor dam­age, in­clud­ing a few spots where dry­wall was bro­ken.

A sign on the ply­wood told cus­tomers the store was still open and ac­ces­si­ble through an en­trance in­side BDC Place.

Char­lot­te­town po­lice con­firmed Tues­day no charges have been laid against the driver, but the mat­ter was still un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion pend­ing an in­spec­tion of the ve­hi­cle.
