The original location of Matt's Building Materials is officially back in business. The business held its grand re-opening on Saturday.

The initial spot burned down over two years ago. Co-owner Isaac Smith is feeling renewed.

"It's a sigh of relief, definitely exciting. Just a mix of emotions. It's an awesome feeling to finally be here, it's a long time coming," Smith said.

A more than two year wait now over after re-opening the doors to his shop for the first time since it burned down on New Year's Day in 2022.

"It was a crazy day too. I remember it was right after New Years. I woke up, and I had smelled something burning and when I looked to my right I had seen Matt's on fire," Pharr resident Josh Orozco said.

Smith says it took a lot to make that happen.

"The work was a ton of work. To get this building up and to get it all done and the product everything the way it supposed to be. I could tell you I wouldn't want to do it again. You only want to do this once and that's it. I don't think I have anything left in me. It was sleepless nights in long hours," Smith said.

Hundreds of community members poured into the store to show their support for the store's resurgence.

Something Smith appreciates.
