Two months after a deadly siege on Paris kosher supermarket Hyper Cacher left four hostages dead and a community reeling, the grocery store will reopen. The AP reports that Hyper Cacher will resume business on Sunday.

The store has reportedly undergone a complete renovation after being badly damaged during the January 9 attack, and has been fully re-staffed.

Amedy Coulibaly killed four Jewish hostages before being shot dead when police stormed the building. The attack on the kosher market came two days after two other gunmen, linked to Coulibaly, killed 12 journalists and cartoonists at the Paris offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, which sparked—and has since become a symbol of—an international debate over freedom of speech.
