Jim Bauer and the Bauer family are starting from scratch with their supply business. After its founding in the 1930's, Consumer Supply has been a staple for employees in the region.
After the devastating fire in Storm Lake that left dozens without a place of employment and numbers of corporate partners without a home for their storage needs, Bauer said that the business has been in a holding pattern.
"We are looking at the possibility of re-starting and have a couple of clients that we are talking to," said Bauer. "But, the only site that we have in mind is the old Consumer Supply location."
Bauer confirmed that they are not going to utilize the old Wal-Mart site on N. Lake Avenue.
