In February, we reported on our plans to reopen. We are happy to say that the fact-finding and detailed review steps are now complete.
Our plan remains for UnCorked Glens Falls to reopen in its original storefront at the Wood Theater. The UnCorked wine and liquor store will occupy about 25% of its original space and the other 75% will be home to our new restaurant and bar.
Since February, we have shared drafts with additional chefs and other business owners. Our draft plans have also been with two builders, Glens Falls Code Enforcement, Glens Falls Fire Department, the New York Sate Liquor Authority and an engineer. All have offered suggestions, and we have incorporated them into our design.
We now know how much work and fund-raising will be necessary, and we remain convinced that this project will be successful. Our plans are with a local graphic artist, who will add illustrations and give it an “appetizing” look. They will soon be ready to share.
We have missed being a presence on Glen Street. With a little help — from a lot of friends — we will be very happy to make a full-time return.
