Starting at 6 p.m. last night (Nov. 20), community members were encouraged to camp out in front of the store at 538 W. Maple Avenue with the promise that the first 100 customers in line this morning for the official opening at 6 a.m. would be given free meals for a year.
Around 104 people showed up for the grand opening celebration that featured Mayor Laurie DiRocco and other town representatives, according to a company spokesperson.
The campout is a standing tradition for all new location openings, according to Chick-fil-A’s website.
From now on, the location will be open 6 a.m. until 10 p.m. Monday-Saturday and closed on Sundays.
The new location features a drive-thru as well as an indoor dining room, playroom and outdoor seating.
