Businesses usually don’t mix a one-year anniversary with a grand opening, but that’s exactly what happened in Millcreek on May 27.

The event was actually called a grand reopening for Gordon’s Butcher and Market, Firestone’s Restaurant and Paris’s Cap & Cork.

The event also provided a chance to show off a project that doubled the dining area at Firestone’s.

The businesses first opened their Peach Street location in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We didn’t get to have a grand opening. There were restrictions, so we didn’t get to have all that much fun. We did a big expansion into Firestone’s. This is a way to christen that. It’s a grand reopening and a one year birthday,” said Kyle Bohrer, Owner of Gordon’s Butcher and Market.

Gordon’s has also recently opened a second location in the Flagship City Food Hall.
