The golden arches have been taken down as McDonald’s in Tandy Town begins it it’s transformation.
On Thursday a demolition crew was on site at the Tandy Town location tearing down the existing building.
And not everyone was happy about the demolition.
McAlester resident Hayden Harvison, 4, said he was sad as he watched the the demoliton from inside his mother’s truck. Hayden is the son of McAlester News-Capital Photo Editor Kevin Harvison.
“What are they doing that for?” Hayden asked. After his mother, Mindi Harvison, said they were building a new retaurant, he said it was okay but he still wanted his “chicken nuggets.”
Meanwhile, plans for the new resturant include some major changes.
“The new restaurant will have modern, contemporary design, a convenient double drive-thru, additional seating, as well as a new Play Place with two interactive games,” said Dewayne Sampson owner of the restaurant.
The rebuilding process will begin soon and the whole construction project will take approximately three months, Sampson said.For more on this story, see the print or electronic editions of the McAlester News-Capital.
