NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Much of East Nashville is still recovering from the deadly tornado that swept through in March.
Brittany Hartwell’s clothing boutique, Molly Green, was completely destroyed.
“It’s just kind of sad. I mean even they way we found out was just on Twitter because somebody said Molly Green is gone,” said Hartwell.
Edley’s Bar-B-Que owner, Will Newman, was able to repair their damage and reopened earlier this summer.
But he said things still aren't the same.
“It’s coming back slowly. It’s not performing as well as our other locations in Nashville and I think that’s due in large part to the fact there’s just a lack of daytime office activity. It’s not very lucrative to be small business in Nashville right now.”
The hardships have been rough, but both business owners said the East Nashville is resilient.
“East Nashville is full of hardworking people with tons of talent and creativity and it spirit and it’s going to bounce back,” said Hartwell.
