http://www.fool.com/news/commentary/2006/commentary06091916.htm?ref=foolwatchFool on Call: Rebuilding Pier 1 After the StormBy Jeremy MacNealy September 19, 2006 In 1910, the Naples, Fla., pier was completely destroyed. It was rebuilt, then destroyed again in 1960 by Hurricane Donna. The good news: The current pier has withstood a number of close encounters -- including the latest in 2005, when Hurricane Wilma rushed toward Naples with 125-mph winds and brought $135 million worth of damage to the city. Pier 1 Imports (NYSE: PIR) has also faced a different sort of storm, and it's currently looking to rebuild -- but this rebuilding process is taking a lot longer than anticipated........
