EUGENE, Ore. --- One local business got creative after a car crashed into the front of their shop on Friday.
Angus James is the owner of the Broadway Wine Merchants in Eugene. After someone drove into his wine shop he decided to make the best of it.
Since we are in the middle of a pandemic he says materials aren't readily available and that it would take five weeks to get the doors back to normal.
So instead of waiting, Angus and his wife went right to work. They decided to use wine boxes to cover the boarded up doors and it turned out to be a hit.
"A lot of people thought we just decided to do it not because someone drove through our doors because they said it looked so cool and was a great idea. My phone has blown up quite a bit," Angus James said.
He said only the retail portion of his stop has been used since the pandemic started. So when the doors to the wine bar were busted through he took it as a sign that they need to make some changes.
"Let's take this situation where someone gave us lemons and make some lemonade out of it. So me and my wife spent a few hours yesterday putting it together and I think it turned out great," James said.
He told KEZI 9 News that several ideas are in the works but in the meantime he's glad customers are enjoying his project. He also said he is grateful that no one was hurt.
