When I drove through the plaza, the sign was still up by the store was completely empty. I went to their Facebook page to see what happened and learned that this is not the end of Oh Corn! Arepas and More. They will be moving. However, at this time they do not have a new location yet.


According to their Facebook, the owners explained why they decided to suddenly close their doors in Halfmoon. They said that their lease was ending and with staffing, and the market the way it is, they had decided not to renew their lease in Halfmoon. But they did give a bit of insight as to where they may be relocating to. Here's part of what was posted on the Oh Corn! Arepas and More Facebook page:

We will be relocating to one particular downtown in the Capital Region where we are currently exploring our new location. Our expectation is to be operating in our new location at the beginning of 2022.

Many customers and fans of the restaurant are hoping they open in their "downtown". Some suggested Saratoga Springs, Albany, Troy, Ballston Spa, and even Amsterdam. No matter where they decide to open, I know I will drive there to experience their amazing food.


The owners of Oh Corn! Arepas and More also wanted to thank their customers:

We are very grateful for all of the support provided by our local customers in the Halfmoon-Clifton Park area.

They also want to make sure that you monitor their social media to get updates on their progress. They say they are confident that they will open their new place in 2022.
