Default remodeling Meredith McDonald's?

Tell me it ain't so, tell me it's not happening, tell me the moose motif, ala 1980's style at the Meredith McDonald's will NOT become a memory from the past as it is now under construction with what looks like big changes happening.

Why mess with that old, excellent McDonald's style from 1987 when it was built? Just leave it alone. The new "box" style McDonald's are purposely designed to be cold and bare bones ugly inside so's people will not want to linger inside but just to eat and get the fast hell outta there.

Looks like a local icon, the Meredith McDonald's is getting remodeled into oblivion.

Ye olde Meredith McDonalds, circa 1987, and upgraded in 2006 is on the chopping block with a major remodel at this time, year-2022. May its' memory rest in a piece of the Big Breakfast with Pancakes!

FLL don’t the kiosks at the McDonald’s ruin the 80s vibe? I wish they’d go back to the actual Golden Arches design from the 60s and 70s. Also bring back Mayor McCheese and the rest of the gang.

Wage inflation.
The economy is overheated; and a strong economy cause wages to rise sharply.

Back when they were pushing to raise wages by government decree, we explained that if the government exercised certain policies, that the economy would grow to the point of not having enough labor and demand for labor would raise the wages.

Now it is up to management to find the peak price/value of its product/service and look for production growth to stay within that target.

For that location, it may be less interior seating and greater drive-thru.
Maybe the management will even offer specials based on slow hours of the operation to balance out customer flow.

Does A&W still exist anywhere in New England anymore? I remember one back in the 1950's or 1960's that was located on the D.W. Highway in South Nashua.
