Carrier’s in Bucksport Back open Today-What Happened? [PHOTOS]
After running an errand yesterday late morning, I was thinking lunch.
Being close enough to Bucksport my destination was Carrier’s Mainely Lobster on Routes 1 & 46.
What did I have you ask? Lobster roll? No. Oh, then a crab roll? No. Hmm, the haddock nuggets and fries? No again.
Here’s what I got at Carrier’s as I went to pull into the lot.
Oh, no! Here’s the story: An elderly gentleman and his wife were there earlier for an ice cream cone. And he hit the building with his car.
Note to self: Get the same kind of car he’s driving next time because it barely had a dent.
The building he hit was not so lucky. Right next to the windows you order at and pick up your food at is the wall he hit. On the other side of that wall is the kitchen. With the fryers, the grill, and the propane tanks. Right up against that wall.
That’s why Carrier’s was closed as of late morning yesterday.
However, within minutes, not hours, after the mishap, workers were there and already working on getting the exterior repaired.
Carrier’s owner BJ’s Mom was there and told me:
It’s all family. Carpenters and workers got at it right away.
Thankfully, as the summer of 22 ticks away, this will be a short closure. Carrier's expects to be back open again this morning.
I’ve already got my next trip planned and am mulling through what to order in my mind.
