The new Buffalo Wild Wings location is expected to open on Friday, Jan. 18 at 11 a.m.
As O'Fallon Patch previously reported, the establishment is relocating from the intersection of Highway K and Highway N, to the former Old Country Buffet building in front of Target at Laura Hill.
Christina Boehm, Buffalo Wild Wings franchise marketing manager said the reason for the move is to improve parking and gain higher visibility.
Boehm said in an email that the current location at 3020 Highway K will officially close on Tuesday, Jan. 15 at 10 p.m.
At the Nov. 1 O'Fallon Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, the commission approved a recommendation for a conditional use permit and site plan for the restaurant to the city council.
At the meeting, a representative for the property said the Buffalo Wild Wings has been at the 3020 Highway K in O'Fallon for 10 years and the new location they will increase the restaurant size from a 6,000 square foot building to 7,500 square foot building.
O'Fallon Patch will update with more information as it becomes available.
