My heart goes out to the owners and families. What a way to start off 2011.
Hang in there and your fans/supporters will see you at the Re-Opening!

Wishing Dittmer's a quick recovery. This store is a Mountain View treasure and I hope the city will fast track permits to get it operational again.

I love Dittmer's, but I'm an even bigger fan of Masa Sushi. I hope they both reopen quickly!

Terrible news! Very glad no one was hurt and very very glad to hear that Dittmer's will re-open again soon -- Dittmer's is an institution in our family.

Dittmer's - love your corned beef, your steaks, your European groceries, and your great service. They don't make 'em like Dittmer's anymore. Awaiting your grand reopening, soon I hope.

Not only is Dittmer's meat good they are great community supporters who make affordable sausages, etc available to community service groups for fund raisers. Best wishes for a smooth remodeling and reopening soon! It was at least the best-smelling fire in the area in a ling time!

I am so happy for a couple reasons
- that nobody was hurt
- that I finally could read a Voice blog with only positive comments

Good luck to Dittmar's. It is a unique and wonderful store - I add my wishes for a speedy re-opening.

This butcher's shop is part of my definition of "the good life" and I'm feeling deprived without it.
