Laura Cornale will reopen Laura's Coffee Corner – closed since last May's fire in Five Corners – in its new location on Saturday (April 1).

Laura’s Coffee set to reopen in White Rock

Laura's Coffee Corner will open its doors at 15259 Pacific Ave. this Saturday (April 1)

Another White Rock business displaced by last May’s Five Corners fire is getting back to business.

Laura’s Coffee Corner will open its doors at 15259 Pacific Ave. this Saturday (April 1), owner Laura Cornale announced this week on the shop’s Facebook page and Twitter.

“The staff and I are so excited to see all of you and join in on our special day,” Cornale writes. “Really can’t believe that I will be back in business.”

The coffee shop, open since 2010, was among a dozen streetfront businesses that were displaced last spring when fire ripped through the Ocean Ridge condominium complex, rendering it uninhabitable.

The blaze, which started at the under-construction Allure – located immediately south of the Ocean Ridge – was determined soon after to have been intentionally set. Nearly one year later, no arrests have been announced.

Cornale was offered her new location by the site’s former longtime owners, Terry and Sheila Soo. The Soos operated J&H Market for 46 years before retiring last fall.

Saturday, the coffee shop will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
