McDonalds Restaurants in both Castlegar and Trail held their grand openings on Sept. 8. The stores celebrated with appearances by Ronald McDonald and great specials all weekend.

In Castlegar, the renovations have been in the works since May. The restaurant was closed down for two weeks and then only the drive thru was open for another two weeks after that.

Castlegar owners Brad and Kathleen Zubick, who have owned and operated McDonalds here for seven years, are glad to see the modernization of the store.

“We’ve been working with head office for three to four years. We wanted to refresh the building,” said Kathleen. “We also needed to upgrade the front counter and drive thru and we also added a new McCafe cappuccino bar. So we just decided to put it all in at once.”

The Zubicks are pleased with the new look of the store and look forward many more years of serving Castlegar and the area.

“The building was so old, it was time to bring in new furniture. It’s a little more comfortable now, more modern,” said Kathleen.

To celebrate the grand openings of both the Trail and Castlegar McDonalds Restaurants, both stores donated $1,000 to their respective food banks.
