A business in Waynesboro tried to recoup lost income on Sunday. This after it spent hours without power on Saturday.

Heritage on Main, Travis Harrison, said on Saturday the restaurant did not open until 4:30 p.m. It usually opens around 11 a.m. He said while the power was out, employees worked to set up generators. When they finished doing it, the power came back on.

He said on a regular Saturday, the business makes around $6,000 to $10,000. However, this Saturday, it only made under $3,000 in revenue.

"You just take it as a loss. It is part of running a restaurant. It is a very fluid industry. There are no set rules. Some days are good. Some days are bad and you just accept it for what it is and keep going forward," Harrison said.

He said next time the power goes out, employees will be ready to set up generators.
