CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A Cape Coral country store is rebuilding, and rising from the ashes.

Just days before Christmas, an accidental spark set Rustic Gatherings ablaze. They're located in downtown Cape Coral. Now you can see signs of progress, and the owner tells WINK News she's opening a sister store down the street. 

"From that store we can see the original Rustic Gatherings, so we're excited about that. It's a little bit smaller but again, it is just going to be our sister store," said Donna Freeman. 

The sister store, located on Cape Coral Parkway, is set to open May 17th. Freeman says she's working on getting permits approved before they can start the official remodel of the other store.
