Writer's Pick: Resilient Local Business

In the early morning of Friday, Sept. 4, heading into one of the year's busiest weekends, Red Rock Liquors owner David Kim learned his business was on fire. Not only that, but Fire Department people at the scene were telling local TV stations the building looked to be a total loss. Luckily, the early assessment was wrong, but there was still smoke and water damage inside the store. Kim and his employees went into overdrive with the cleanup, and thanks to suppliers and much effort, reopened late that day and through the holiday weekend. It wasn't the first such traumatic experience for the business, either: In March 2008, a car drove through the front door into the store. Kim had the place open the next day then, as well. Now he just hopes bad things won't happen in threes. — Ralph Routon
