The Hen House Market at Corinth Square kept its doors open during an eight-month remodeling, doing the big jobs overnight like demolition, removing the drop ceiling and painting the “new” ceiling, and putting in new floor tile.

Store officials admit it was still stressful for some shoppers, but some saw it as an adventure — wondering what had changed since their last visit.

Aggravation or adventure ended, the Hen House Market will celebrate with an official “grand opening” starting today, with events running through next Tuesday, including extensive food samplings, giveaways to the first 500 customers each day, and food demonstrations. Other grand opening events will be held later this month and in July.
