The Petro Mart on Eden Church Road is still closed - almost one month after the explosion that leveled Coco Resources.

Store Owners have been cleaning and throwing any away products that might have been contaminated.

Owners tell NBC33 they're waiting for local officials to come in and give them the green light to reopen.

They admit it needs to be soon - because the closure is starting to impact their way of life.

The store is just feet from CoCo Resources. The plant exploded when employees were working near some chemicals. Clean up in the area is still continuing.
