Soon-to-be new business in Newbo survives flood waters

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Today the Newbo area is dry but one up and coming business called Bo Mac's was impacted by water last week.

Bo Mac's is still in their renovation stage and is not yet open, but plans to open as a bar and restaurant with live music by the end of the year.

Today the business was back to work renovating and they say they're glad they weren't further along when the flood hit.

"Yeah it could have been worse we could have had drywall and insulation up. We could have had, we could have been a lot farther along and or it could have been operational and then we would have had to shut and have to you know have people not be able to work which would have been difficult for a lot more people than just myself," says Brett McCormick, Bo Mac's Owner.

Just down the street, Tornado's Pub has an "open" sign on it today, a great sign for the Newbo area of Cedar Rapids who was strongly impacted by water.
