An Algoma business will remain closed after experiencing a fire back in July. Bearcat’s Fish House posted on social media Tuesday afternoon that they made the difficult decision to not rebuild or reopen the Bearcats Algoma store. Citing that the “high cost of rebuilding, labor shortages, and the long lead times on equipment did not support rebuilding in Algoma”. Bill and Nicole Smith purchased Bearcats on Fourth Street in 2012 and operated the business that sold fresh and smoked fish, seafood, and other products out of that location until the fire. The Smiths have a Bearcat’s Fish House location at 2223 Velp Avenue in Howard.
