Posted at 11:24 AM, Feb 20, 2019

A Santa Maria business destroyed by fire at the beginning of the year is set to reopen in a new location next month.

The owner of Sergio’s Furniture says he is not going to let the fire push them out of business.

The business has rented a spot on the second floor of the Santa Maria Town Center Mall and is set to open March 1.

The blaze broke out in the 15,000+ square-foot building on the 700 block of South Broadway on Jan. 3, destroying Sergio’s and badly damaging Shaw’s Famous Steakhouse & Tavern.

Fire investigators have not said what may have sparked the blaze.
