ATLANTA GA (NCC NEWS) – Weeks after destructive looting, businesses across Atlanta are removing plywood from the windows and doors. Yet some businesses are choosing to keep their boards up, despite enduring any damage.
Gourmet Chinese restaurant, Hsu’s [SHOES], is one of the businesses. Stated by the restaurant owner, who would like to remain anonymous, wants to protect the 30-year-old, Chinese stained glass windows.
“It’s connected with Chinese art with two Chinese ladies playing chess, on the side of the tree, with the lotus flower,” Hsu said.
Hsu’s restaurant owner stated that the business was afraid of any damage, so boards were put up to prevent it. After only being open again for 2 days, Hsu plans to take down the plywood when the dining room reopens.
“I’m not even sure when we’re going to open the dining room,” Hsu said.
Hsu also ordered a protective glass, to put in front of the stain windows, once the boards are removed.
Hsu stated the business didn’t mind having to close, because some renovations were able to get done.
“ We didn’t mind to rest, we did some repainting and reorganized the pictures since we closed,” Hsu Said.
