Thursday marks the opening for a National Wholesale Liquidators store on Long Island. The business was packed all morning, but the opening has a special meaning to workers of the Yonkers store, who could have been out of a job on the same day.

Shawn Harrysingh was working at National Wholesale Liquidators on Central Park Avenue Wednesday when a Bobcat on the parking deck came crashing through the ceiling, sending people running for their lives.

Five people were injured in the incident.

Coincidentally, the next day was the opening of the store in the Woodmere-Rosedale area, and the workers that were displaced from Yonkers moved to work at the new store.

Harrysingh says it would be extremely hard for him if he was not able to work following the roof collapse. Many of the other workers echoed his sentiments.

At present, the Yonkers store is still too dangerous for people to enter and there is no timetable for when the doors will open again.
