Yes that fire sure is suspicious and I was hinting at that Jamie in my post and I don’t know if you posted it. I was talking to hubby about it and he said that is sure sounds like someone set the fire if they couldn’t sell it or cost too much to repair or to keep going because of the taxes, utilities, etc. Poirier Furniture has been in operation forever.

Wasn’t it just 2 years ago that the same darn “business” caught fire? Hmmm… If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again?

I’d like to see Poirier Furniture rebuild on the same site with a larger store. That would put the screws to some who think a condo should go there. A condo would never fly in that part of Cornwall. Wakey-wakey!!
