SOUTH PORTLAND – The deli at J.P. Thornton’s Cafe and Deli has reopened after a flood last week caused by a water main break.

The restaurant at 740 Broadway was among about a half-dozen businesses damaged when the water main broke on Sept. 6.

The pub section of the restaurant will reopen Thursday, said Sarah O’Connell, general manager of the restaurant. She said the main portion of the restaurant still needs new carpeting, but she hopes it will reopen within a week.

A fundraiser Tuesday night raised about $2,300 to go toward the cost of repairing the damage, O’Connell said.

“People were very generous and a lot stopped by,” she said.
