The McDonald's express located at Brentwood Mall's south entrance next to IHOP and BMO underwent renovations in July and had to be shut down for a few days. Now that it has reopened, I am wondering what the renovations and subsequent closing of the store accomplished. As far as I can see, everything looks exactly as it was before the renovation. The entrance and ordering counter remain in the same position as before. In my opinion, it would have made sense to at least change the layout so the ordering area would not spill into the mall as it does now and become crowded during hours when the mall is closed and the accordion doors are closed.
Maybe the work only involved electrical and plumbing updates.
