UPDATE Sat 1/22 – here’s a link to a Facebook post from the daughter of Zap & Co’s owner, Steve Murray – he’d badly burned and injured but in stable condition. Please send healing thoughts his way, and towards his family as well.
We have just learned that Zap & Co. of Lancaster PA – established in 1973 and claiming to be the nation’s oldest vintage clothing store, burned down last night, and there are reports that owner Steve Murray has been hospitalized.
We had plans to visit Zap & Co. for RetroRoadmap next Friday night (RetroRoadhusband has a gig down the street) – so this goes to show, once again – go out and visit the places that mean a lot to you -they might not be there tomorrow! Our thoughts go out to Steve and everyone who was impacted by this sad occurance.
In learning more about the fire it appears that they don’t know what started the fire, and may never know because the building is too dangerous to enter and they’re demolishing it. Owner Steve Murray is in the hospital in critical but stable condition.
