The storms of July 10 that swamped the Madison area not only caused flooding, but in the case of Chalet Ski & Patio, it caused a partial roof collapse. The store has been closed since, as repair and remodeling work continues before it re-opens at a future date.

In a July 19 news release, Tony Millonig of Chalet Ski & Patio said the store would temporarily close to repair the damage. All the merchandise was removed from the building and relocated to their warehouse in Belleville, and the store will be restored to its “original condition” in preparation for a grand re-opening, he said.

The company’s service department, warehouse and company offices remain open. For updates on the date of the re-opening, check or call 273-8263.
