NAPA (KRON) — For many residents of Napa, it’s a time to clean up their homes from the effects of Sunday morning’s earthquake and then rush off to work to help their employers clean up debris there.
The Vallergas Market in Napa is one such business. Supervisors say they know how tough it is on their employees.
“It’s just a lot of hard work from employees who care,” supervisor Bruce Anderson tells KRON 4′s Charles Clifford. “They take care of their homes as quick as they can and make sure things are cleaned up then they’re down here to help us clean up the store to get ready to re-open because they know it’s their livelihood and how they keep their families fed. They know the store needs to be open to help them and to help us.”
Anderson says the market lost 40% of its inventory in the quake including just about all of its produce which was spoiled when the power went out. About a third of the wine inventory is also gone.
The market is due to re-open Tuesday if all goes well.
