Dominican Sisters Thrift Store, a fixture on Front Street in Greenport for 19 years, closed its doors earlier this month.

The shop, run entirely by volunteers, sold donations from the community to earn money for ArchCare, formerly Dominican Sisters Family Health Services. ArchCare, which provides at-home health care, assumed sponsorship of the home care ministry from the Dominican Sisters in August 2016.

The owner of BBQ Bill’s in Greenport said he’s settled matters with the state over sales taxes and was able to reopen his Front Street restaurant to customers Friday morning — just time for the busy season.

“We were open 12 hours later,” said the owner, Doug Cress. “We apologize for any inconveniences to any customers who were looking to eat here on Thursday.”

“It was my fault,” he said. “But in nine years in business I never had a problem.”

Mr. Cress said the cold winter was tough on the restaurant, but he was glad to have it open in time for the village’s busy season.

BBQ Bill’s re-opened at 11 a.m. Friday, he said.

Known for its pulled-meat sandwiches, St. Louis baby back ribs and smoked wings, the two-story barbecue restaurant also has an upstairs view of Greenport Harbor at its back.
