Retailer damaged in November storm is set to reopen


HAMBURG, N.Y. -- After 10 weeks of being closed, BJ's Wholesale in Hamburg is now ready to reopen.

On November 17, the building started showing signs of damage from the estimated 4.1 million pounds of snow that was collecting on the roof.

Because employees caught the damage early, engineers were able to stage a controlled collapse so that no one was hurt.

All employees will be back as of this Saturday when the store reopens. It's been a rough couple of months for those who went eight to 10 weeks without work. Some of the workers were able to pick up hours at other area BJ's, but the rest had to collect unemployment during that time.

Customers who lost about three months of their membership will get an extra four months in return.
