MOORHEAD — After more than a year of being closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Village Inn here will reopen for business Monday, April 12.

Abe Sakak, a manager for Minot-based owner Hospitality Management and Integration, confirmed the news Wednesday, April 7.

Sakak said they are working to staff and train employees right now. Many of them came from the Fargo Village Inn at 3140 25th St. S., which closed its doors Monday, April 5, to make way for a new Chase Bank branch .

While it was closed, the Moorhead restaurant underwent an extensive remodel.

"As we speak, they're doing the refreshing: new booths, new covers, new carpets," Sakak told The Forum in February.


For now, the hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., but Sakak said they will likely extend their hours as they hire more employees.
