The shopping complex is getting remodeled. The Dollar General plans to remain open during the update.
While the deli will be expanding its menu options, the big change for Downtown Catering will be the addition of an event space.
A fully landscaped courtyard will seat 150 people — more for a cocktail party. An indoor space also will seat 150, owner Leah McCarthy said.
“There will be a beautiful garden and overhead cafe lighting,” McCarthy said about the courtyard.
Rethink Design Studio out of Savannah has been hired to design the garden and interior space.
“It will be urban meets the South,” McCarthy said. “It will have Lowcountry tones but a lot more city. Our designers are from New York City and live in Savannah.”
The deli will move to the May River Road location in May as well. The popular lunch spot will have a separate entrance.
McCarthy previously said the menu will be expanded. One addition will be grab-and-go items, such as salads.
Another addition to the business will be space for cooking demonstrations, McCarthy said.
Downtown Catering and Downtown Deli currently are located at 27 Dr. Mellincamp Drive.
