Stages West store reopening in Pigeon Forge after fire

PIGEON FORGE (WATE) – A longtime Pigeon Forge business badly damaged by fire last year is set to reopen this summer.

Firefighters were able to put out the fire last August at Stages West, but the weight of the water caused the roof to collapse. The store has been family-owned and operated since 1975. The store sells Western hats, coats, shirts, jeans and boots among other things.
