After several months of bad news, here’s a bit of good news for pizza fans. Wood Stone is set to reopen one of their Fayetteville locations next week.

According to co-owner Jerrmy Gawthrop, the restaurant’s uptown location will officially reopen for business on Tuesday, Sept. 15.

Gawthrop said the company isn’t quite ready to reopen its downtown restaurant at this time.

The restaurant will focus on carryout, curbside, and dining on their patio. A new 1,700-square foot-deck is also under construction, though it is not expected to be quite ready for the re-opening on the 15th.

Wood Stone was one of the first restaurants to close when the pandemic began. The restaurant reopened briefly over the summer, but concerns over the rising cases in the region, among other factors, led the owners to announce they would close until the fall.

Since closing, the restaurant has focused on making pizzas for Fayetteville Roots Festival’s Meals for Musicians program to provide food for local artists who have been unable to perform due to the pandemic.

Beginning on the 15th, the restaurant will be open Tuesday-Friday from 4 p.m. until close, and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. until close.

Wood Stone Uptown is located at 3619 Mall Ave. in Fayetteville.
