The , located at 25 George St., in Morristown, was knocked out of operation after being flooded by Hurricane Irene.
All merchandise was destroyed when the first floor was filled with mud and water during the storm. The Mission store expects to be closed for approximately three weeks and the loss of merchandise and lack of sales during that time is estimated to cost the Mission $50,000 dollars.
