Queen Creek Olive Mill will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony from noon to 1:30 p.m. Thursday to unveil recent renovations to its retail shop.
The biggest interior change people will notice is the removal of the walls that formed the room where the various olive oils were displayed. The oils are still in that same area on reconfigured shelves.
A bump-out was added to the building’s exterior to accommodate larger restrooms. It also allows the cash registers to be pushed back, resulting in more retail space.
Outside, the porch has a fresh coat of paint and the patio’s shade roof has been upgraded.
If you’ve been to the olive mill on a busy weekend, you know how human traffic gets jammed up trying to go in and out the same door. That problem has been solved with separate in and out doors.
Queen Creek Olive Mill, 25062 S. Meridian Road, Queen Creek, is open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. Info: (480) 888-9290.
