GARRETTSVILLE, OH (WOIO) -

According to Mayor Rick Patrick, most if not all of the 13 businesses destroyed by the fire last weekend in Garrettsville plan to rebuild at the same spot.

"They want to rebuild they still want to remain on main street, everyone knows everyone and they are comfortable buying from them," says one resident. 

Three law offices and the well established barber shop,  the "Barbers of G ville" are among the businesses planning to return.

"The barber has been here for ever," the resident added.  

There is a quilt shop, tool shop, clock shop, and an antique shop, along with hearing store, a foot clinic, a construction company, and a food bank that completes the list of the 13 business. The food bank, called the Nelson Garrettsville Community Food Cupboard was co-founded by Joe Leonard who says there is a growing need for his service.

"We feed approximately 100 families a month and its growing," says Leonard. 

A time line for rebuilding has not yet been set.
