UPDATED: Store reopens after tornadoes

Posted: Updated:

RINGGOLD, CATOOSA COUNTY (WRCB) - It's been four months since tornadoes ripped through the city of Ringgold and business owners continue to pick up the pieces.

Cochran's Furniture was damaged in the April tornados, and since then, the furniture store has been rebuilding, as well as doing some renovations. 

This morning, Cochran's held a grand re-opening ribbon cutting ceremony to highlight their "open for business" status.

"I tell ya the lord has given us more peace than any person could give us, and we've gained our strength from that," said store owner Tim Cochran.

They also wanted to educate the public on future renovation plans.

The repairs on Cochran's Furniture store included rebuilding the loading dock and the sign on the front of their building, which was completely ripped off by the tornados. So far, Cochran says the damages and renovations to the building cost about $1 million dollars.

Three sections of the store have not been completed. Cochran says those sections will open to the public between Sept. 15 and Sept. 25.
