The Derbyshire Times can exclusively reveal the opening date for Nando’s in Chesterfield.
The hotly-anticipated South African eaterie will open at the site of the former Blockbuster store on Alma Leisure Park on Wednesday, October 22.
It will sit alongside the likes of Frankie and Benny’s, McDonald’s and Cineworld.
Builders are currently redeveloping the site and today erected signs including the Nando’s name – and a black cockerel with a red heart.
The Derbyshire Times revealed in March that the popular chicken restaurant chain was coming to Chesterfield – sparking massive interest.
Founded in 1987, Nando’s operates about 1,000 outlets in 24 countries.
