Attleborough's mayor Tony Perkins has re-opened his butcher's shop in the market town two weeks after it was damaged by fire.
Mr Perkins opened the Church Street shop yesterday after putting in overtime to get everything ready.
He said: 'We are fully up to speed now and we are really pleased with the support that we've had.'
The fire started in an electrical cabinet and damaged part of the ceiling inside the shop.
Mr Perkins, who also has butcher shops in Dereham and Mattishall, opened a temporary shop after the fire in the building behind his main premises, but this has now closed.

He said he received the shock of his life when two men burst through the town hall doors during a town council meeting and told him about the blaze on April 11.
The alarm was raised when two people in the flat above the shop smelt smoke and firefighters were called.
