Was a Redding McDonalds Hit by a Meteor?……..

No but it sure looked like it was.

A Redding McDonalds at 801 E. Cypress Ave, is, apparently undergoing an extensive remodel.  When driving by the restaurant today, Sept. 08, 2008,   I noticed a crowd of people watching a work crew, behind a chain link fence surrounding the work site.  The crew was demolishing the building which once stood open for business, serving some of my favorites like Big Macs and all sorts of delicious breakfast sandwiches, but now it was being torn down and taken away board by board, and piece by piece.

When I contacted the McDonalds corporate office to ask about specifics like, if and when will this restaurant reopen, I was told that they had no information to give me, but they would have the owner give me a call and he could answer any questions which I had.

As of the time of posting this article, I have not heard anything from anyone. If I do hear anything I will post it here.

Here is information if you wish to contact the corporate office of McDonalds to find out for yourself.

I received a phone call from this McDonalds owner, and was told that the store will be rebuilt from the ground up and a reopen date is scheduled for December 15, 2008.

    We are happy to see that there will be a brand new McDonalds rebuilt at the same location. Obviously the decision to tear down and rebuild a brand new Mcdonalds from the ground up, was one which shows growth and competition is thriving here in Redding.
