Offer made on Naramata pub

There appears to be a buyer for the Camp Creek Station pub in Naramata, which suddenly closed its doors in the small community last summer.

 Philip Fox, a realtor with Re/Max Penticton, the listing agency for the property, said there is an offer pending on it subject to court approval, because it is in foreclosure.

"The offer has been written by another real estate company. At the time of court, other qualified buyers can submit an offer and then the court will decide who the purchaser will be," said Fox.

He added if there are no other offers and providing the judge approves that offer it would be sold. If there are others, they look at the highest bidder.

Last July, a sign appeared on the front door, simply saying, "pub closed." The building has stood at the same location since 1985, and was last owned by Esther and Larry Knight, who were very community minded, holding several fund-raisers at the pub.

It was popular with both residents and visitors and those learning of its closure in the summer were saddened.

Many described it as a landmark and community hub, where people gathered to eat, drink and socialize.

Fox said he understands the person who made the offer would like to get it open as soon as possible, but it has to go to court first.

A court date has not yet been set.

"It's the local pub in Naramata," he said. "I'm sure everyone would love to see it up and running."
