A rare sight has met visitors to town this morning, with McDonalds being closed.
McDonald’s on Regent Street is undergoing a major ‘digital makeover’ and refurbishment and is closed until the 29th of March.
Changes will include the new digital self service options, and table service via ‘dedicated dining room hosts’.
Franchisee Stewart Williams, who owns and operates eight restaurants in Flintshire and Wrexham including the one on Regent Street, told us when the closure was first announced: “These changes are designed to make our customers’ experience as positive as possible – whether that’s providing people with a chance to get to grips with using a tablet in a relaxed environment, or providing parents with a quick and easy way of ordering their food.
“When ordering with the new kiosks customers will have the option to make different food choices, for example swapping fries for a side salad or adding a fruit bag to their children’s Happy Meal.”
Customers are being pointed to Chirk as the nearest source of nuggets, with North Wales Police Wrexham Rural team even tweeting about the extra expected business down the A483:
