Business badly damaged by fire set for rebirth in Berks

BOYERTOWN, Pa. - A Berks County business that was badly damaged by fire last year is just about ready to reopen.

Barn Fresh Vintage Market near Boyertown will kick off its grand reopening celebration with a ribbon cutting on March 31, nearly five months after it was forced to close.

A two-alarm fire on November 4 destroyed an adjoining building and caused serious smoke and water damage to Barn Fresh and its more than 20 vendors, putting them out of business until repairs could be made.

While the fire was a significant setback, the business owners said it provided them with an opportunity to make some improvements.

"We’ve redesigned the store to be brighter and more open, so it's easier for anyone to get around," said Josh Berner.

The owners said Barn Fresh, which first opened its doors in September 2013, is also bigger and better than before,

"We've added 10 new vendors, so we're up to 30 total," said Denise Berner. "Everything our customers love is coming back, along with some fabulous new things. We have beautiful spring décor items plus fresh plants, flowers, herbs and more."

Barn Fresh is located at 311 County Line Road, just off Route 100, in Colebrookdale Township. The ribbon cutting is set for 4 p.m. on Friday, March 31. The celebration will continue through the weekend.
