BENTON - A long time family business in Franklin County will now be permanently closing their doors.

Pearson's Skating Rink, located just south of Benton, announced tonight they will not be reopening after a water pipe burst and ruined their wood floor this winter.

"In order for us to get back up and going, we would have to wait 6 months to a year to get the wood floor replaced due to a wood shortage. We don’t have enough Business Interruption Insurance to cover us for that long. So we have decided that we will not be able to reopen the rink. We will be selling the building in hopes that someone else will purchase the building and make it a skating rink again."

Pearson's Skating Rink has been opened for 18 years in Franklin County.
