Renovation to end on Friday

Renovations at the Hungry Moose will conclude on Friday. Among new offerings will be a salad bar, more seating and more space for products.

In less than four months, upgrades were completed in the original space and the new space was added. Twice as much seating is offered in the new space, which will open to more patio seating in the spring and summer. New wine racks are being installed in the original space and shoppers can look forward to more wine offerings and a wine club opportunity.

Architect Bayless Ward, who worked on the Moose initially, kept designs consistent. “Everything’s been made to look like it was a continuous place that was built this way,” Frank Kern, owner of the Moose, said. Blue Ribbon Construction replaced counters, cabinets, floors, redid the existing bathroom and added another bathroom and various coolers and freezers.

The Moose now offers a salad bar, one of the new features after the renovation. It is the first soup and salad bar in the Town Center, Kern said. He also proclaimed the Moose as a part of the flower business now, with an area for flower arrangement and capabilities to offer vases, center pieces and custom flowers.

Throughout the renovation, the Moose was able to stay open, which Robin expressed gratitude to customers for. Both Robin and Kern are in the business for their customers and their number one goal is to enhance their experience.

“If you need something, whether you’re a second homeowner, a visitor, or a local, we want to have it,” Kern said.
