Remodeled Macon Chick-fil-A set to reopen

The renovations at the Chick-fil-A restaurant on Tom Hill Sr. Boulevard are nearly complete, and the eatery is expected to reopen Tuesday.

The store has been closed since the end of July for the company’s 20-year remodel.

The store was the first free-standing store the Atlanta-based company built in Middle Georgia, and it was the 13th free-standing store built overall. It plans to hold the following activities this week to celebrate the re-opening of the store built in 1989, according to an e-mail from Marianna Gebara, office manager for the store.

Ÿ 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday: Customers can win a free sandwich if they complete the lyrics from a 1980s song chosen by a store employee.

Ÿ 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Thursday: A number of interactive carnival-style games will be available for customers. Prizes include coupons for free food and other prizes.

Ÿ All day Friday: In honor of the 20th anniversary, anyone dressed — head to toe — in 1980’s attire will win a free combo meal.

Ÿ 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday: Inflatable rides, a miniature train and other activities will be set up for kids in the parking lot.

The Chick-fil-A company was founded by Chairman Truett Cathy more than 60 years ago.

The company had $2.962 billion in sales in 2008 for a 12.17 percent increase over the previous year, according to the its Web site.
