Renovations to Begin on the Garden Court/McCormick’s Mercantile Building

Renovations are starting this month on the building at the Northeast corner of Arnold and Carquinez. Great news! The Garden Court Cafe will remain open until construction starts later this winter and McCormick’s Mercantile will be opening a temporary pop-up shop across the street in the old veterinarian’s building in February. Both businesses will reopen when construction is complete early this summer. Look forward to an enlarged Garden Court Cafe with outdoor seating, new bathrooms, and a modernized kitchen. The new building will have 8 residential units and an electric car charging station! Construction schedules can certainly change. Cross your fingers for an on time completion.

Great time had by all at the Glen Ellen Community Holiday Social and Community Meal!
