Urban Standard Recovery Update

Urban Standard

Our good friends at Urban Standard posted an update this morning on Facebook about their recovery from the fire that took place at their establishment nearly two weeks ago. It looks like they are moving forward in the right direction.

Here is their post and a photo.

Hello from the Urban Standard crew!

Just a quick update on progress so far…

We’ve nearly completed cleaning the front of house and storage/office areas. We’ll have to repaint the ceilings and walls to prevent fire smell from being present in the future, but, all in all, things are moving along nicely on that front.

In the kitchen…well, it’s still a mess. That will be the last place to be cleaned and organized before we evaluate what has to be torn out and what can be salvaged.

Overall, though, things are looking up! We hope we’ll have some clarity on a reopening timeline by the end of the week. Stay tuned here for details.

And as always, thanks so much for all of the support that you’ve all shown us. It’s humbling and we’re so thankful to have such a loving community and family.
