Shakespeare's General Manager: demolition to begin early Wednesday
COLUMBIA - The Shakespeare's Pizza downtown location is set to begin demolition Wednesday at 6 a.m., according to general manager Kurt Mirtsching. The demolition was originally supposed to start last week, but was delayed.
The demolition is expected to be over quickly, as Mirtsching said he expects it to be completed around 8 or 9 a.m.
Mirtsching also said there's not much left inside the building, which is why he believes that the demolition will go quickly.
It's still unclear how the building will be demolished.
On April 1, Shakespeare's announced it would be temporarily relocating to the old BBC II location while the old building is demolished to make way for a new multi-level housing complex.
