Grumpy's pledges to reopen after fire
The owners and staff of Grumpy’s, a popular local restaurant, plan to meet Thursday at the Clay County Sheriff’s Office to talk about their next steps after a fire ripped through their original Middleburg location Wednesday night, causing serious damage.
The owners are anxious to rebuild and reopen the Blanding Boulevard location of the chain, which is a fast-growing local eatery.
