McIsaac’s Store remodels

PARKDALE – Just in time for spring, remodeling of McIsaac’s Store is complete.

The last debris from flooring where shelves stood for 35 years has been swept up, and new shelves and coolers are in place, containing groceries and other products. The store is owned by Gorham Blaine of Parkdale, who also owns the neighboring hardware store. In 2006, the hardware section was moved out of the grocery building to the building a block away.

The current remodeling started in January, when a false ceiling was removed from over the former meat counter, allowing the entire 3,000-square-foot store to become one continual space.

The ceiling removal allowed for the meat department and beer and wine aisle to move and expand, and for more space in general for merchandise.

The interior was painted a barn red, with the metal beams painted black, giving the store a new motif as part of the open floor plan.

General Manager Gary Dallas said a remodeling celebration will be scheduled sometime in April.
