Nelson’s Speed Shop is already back up and running, just a few weeks after suffering a horrific fire. They are doing business from their parking lot at 4566 South Greenville Road, in Greenville.
The fire was reported about 1:30 a.m. June 22, and 11 fire departments and about 75 firefighters fought the blaze. The ATF was called in to investigate, and the fire is still under investigation. The shop was also burned down in a fire in 2001, and three men were sentenced in that case.
The loss in the current fire was estimated at above $5,000,000. But Jack Nelson says he plans to rebuild by winter. And they are still planning their annual Sno-motion event to take place August 24-25.
Nelson’s is open for business from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
