A newly renovated McDonald’s in Salem will be reopening its dining room to customers who have had to get their fix on favorites from coffee to sodas and Big Macs to fries through the drive through while new owner Gerard Stieglitz and son, Michael, gave the store a complete makeover. 

The dining room opens at 8a Wednesday, January 2. 

“We are excited to serve you with our new customer service experience as we hand-deliver all dine-in orders right to your tables,” Michael noted. “You’re…going to enjoy the fresh, new experience!”

The exterior and interior have been renovated over the past two months and the drive-thru has been redone as well but remained open all but a couple of days during construction. 

There will be ordering kiosks inside for customer convenience where you can order and pay. 

There will be an employee family night on Wednesday, January 9th from 5-7p, followed by a community VIP night on Thursday, Jan. 10 from 5-7p. 

The official ribbon cutting and grand opening will be Friday, January 11 at 9a. There will be prizes, giveaways and special events. 

The Play Place, which has been completed replaced, will re-open at 5p that night. 

Marie Lowrey, who operated the franchises in Salem, Mitchell, Bedford and West Baden, sold all four of her stores to Stieglitz, last fall. 

Brianne Lowrey has stayed on with the company as a supervisor.
