On this rainy day the business forecast inside the old Pike County General Store, now called the Roost Market and Deli is sunny and bright.
Thursday was day two of the Route 209 historic structure's new life.
Originally built in the 1800's the store sat empty since 2005. Anthony Palma and his wife Vanessa bought it four years ago.
The pair who run a construction company initially planned to sell but community support soon changed their minds. It's been a learning curve for the couple every since.
They've spent $300,000 turning the rundown building into the Pride of Pike County.
"That's the relief part. Finally done and seeing people's reaction is the biggest part," Anthony said.
Only two days in but people are coming in droves.
"I work for the park service. It's right down there, I can come here it's pretty convenient," said customer Anthony Zotyna.
"It's great actually don't have to many places like this around here. We don't have to drive so far to get to a store," added neighbor Josette Benadle.
