Video: 'Feeling of Sadness' at St. Pete Pier
Some of the business owners at the Pier are saddened by its upcoming closing.
The St. Pete Pier will be closing on May 31, with demolition for "The Lens" project starting in August.
While some businesses have already planned out relocation, others, like the Nic Weathersbee with the Global Candle Company, still haven't found anywhere to go.
Deborah Brown of Peppers on the Pier, one of the businesses that doesn't have a place to relocate to, is also upset over the upcoming loss of the iconic St. Petersburg building.
"We're losing a part of our St. Pete history, and I think we're losing it for all the wrong reasons," Brown said.
Watch our attached video interviews to hear from Nic and Deborah.
