Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Jolly Ollie’s has been unable to schedule their final inspection for re-opening. 

An original re-open date of July 12 will need to be pushed back until August 12 to give the electrical company enough time to have their final inspections. 

“As soon as we can get those inspections done, we will be ready to re-open,” Jolly Ollie’s owner Dilya Knight told the Hendersonville Standard. “I don’t foresee this taking four weeks to get an inspection, but I want to give us enough leeway if any problems arise.”

A tractor trailer accident turned electrical fire forced Knight to close her doors in 2019. She is confident residents will fill her dining room, throw darts upstairs, empty her kegs and enjoy a night of bringing the house down singing karaoke when given the green light. 

“We are turning tragedy into triumph,” Knight said. “We used this time to improve so much, and we are excited to show it off to our community. We will be back better and stronger than before.”

Jolly Ollie’s is located at 82 New Shackle Island Road.
