In February 2018, there was a major water main break that flooded the building that Smitty's Restaurant and Lounge and Prairie Gold Jewelry occupied on the west end of Grande Prairie along 100th Avenue. (Also flooded was the Walmart parking lot.) Both businesses received major damage and nerver re-opening. In August 2018 the building was finally demolished and only the Smitty's sign remained.
