A popular fast-food chain is set to close this weekend in preparation for a new location opening down the street.
Taco Bell, currently at 15 Robert Smalls Parkway in the Beaufort Plaza shopping center, will close Oct. 24, according to co-owner Gary Feathers. The new restaurant, looking remarkably like a Chipotle, is down the street at 209 Robert Smalls Parkway.
"Our plan is to open Oct. 28," Feathers said, adding they still need to get a final certificate of occupancy.
This means there will be at least four Taco Bell-less days in Beaufort. If you don't think you can live without your Doritos Locos Tacos or Cap'n Crunch Delights ... prepare now.
