Lansing. MI (WILX) Don Pancho is currently open for business, despite a car that went through the side of their building during the weekend.

Store owners said they'll remain open for their customers as long as they can.

"We're here for them, they depend on us being open for their groceries," Denise Cervantes, daughter of the store owners, said.

Don Pancho is a locally owned grocery store that sells authentic Mexican groceries and products.

The owners said they've made adjustments to the way they do business to accommodate their current situation. This means temporarily shutting down their kitchen and hot food sells so that they could remain open to sell fresh meats and other grocery items.

The car crash hit a gas line on the side of the store, causing the entire building to go without gas. The lack of gas has affected their heat and water temperatures but they're currently using the water from a business nearby.

While it may be a little colder than usually customers are just happy the business is open.

"It's also for the neighborhood who can't go elsewhere to get authentic Mexican products and items that they need," life-long customer Michael Gonzalez said.

Store owners will know the extent of the damage by Monday and will be able to update their customers about whether or not they will remain open.
