Less than two weeks after a fire destroyed both the building and inventory, boutique office supply store Robert Mason Company, is getting back to business.

“We are very excited to have the website up so quickly and be able to have products available in time for Mother’s Day, graduation and Father’s Day,” Grimmett said in a press release Monday.
Earlier this month, a fire originating in the next door basement of Sugardaddy’s downtown location caused severe interior damage and destroyed the inventory of both businesses. An adjacent Sprint store was also damaged.
According to the release, canvas bags, leather journals and body products will be available in the online store and new products will be released each Monday.
“For now we just plan to take our business online with some limited products we have available,” Grimmett said. “We are working with our vendors to get the variety of fun, stylish products our customers have come to expect from Robert Mason Company.”
A donation website for Robert Mason Co. was set up after the fire to help off-set costs. Currently, $4,300 of the $5,000 goal has been raised. Grimmett said he plans to open a Robert Mason Company location downtown by the end of the year.
