ORLAND, Calif. - A businesswoman who lost her Paradise home and merchandise due to the Camp Fire is now opening her own store in the town of Orland.
The shop is called "Bless Your Heart Mercantile," and Panda Bell, alongside her husband Dan, opened the store last week at 701 4th St.
The store has home decor, clothing and more.
Bell has always dreamed about owning her own business.
She previously rented space in 2017 at her friend's store "Seeker's Boutique," previously on the Skyway near the Starbucks in Paradise.
Bell was a vendor and sold her own merchandise and had good profits from the Paradise community.
Now she's hoping to do the same in Glenn County.
Orland Mayor Bruce Roundy says he's happy that more businesses are coming to town.
"Bless Your Heart Mercantile" will have a grand re-opening on Saturday, August 24, at 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. on 701 4th St., Orland.
A portion of their sales on Saturday will go towards Camp Fire relief efforts.
