A driver who went off the road in downtown St. John's on Sunday also took a local retailer out of business until Monday afternoon.

The motorist went off Water Street and straight into the large display window of the Travel Bug.

"Some lowlife nincompoop rammed our storefront this a.m.," the store tweeted on Sunday. "Needless to say, we're outta biz for a few days."

The store owner said the building sustained some structural damage.

On Monday, the store tweeted, "WE'RE OPEN!...for now," noting that it may have to close as repairs are completed.
