An official opening has been confirmed for the first Domino's takeaway to open in Honiton - three months after it was initially due to launch. The new store in the market town's High Street will open its door on Monday, June 17, and will trade seven days a week from 11am to 11pm.

It was originally meant to open on March 25 at the former HSBC bank. The pizza chain has not confirmed a specific reason for the delay other than to say it was due to 'circumstances outside of our control'. To make up for the long wait, it has confirmed on its Domino's Honiton Facebook page that it is giving away a free item for each day it was late, equating to 84 free items.

Customers can also enjoy a pizza for £6 by signing up to its VIP club. The store is currently recruiting staff including shift managers, pizza-makers, and delivery drivers.

The store will celebrate its opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11am on June 17. Community members and customers are invited to meet the new store team and try some freshly prepared Domino’s pizza.

Last week, Domino's confirmed the store would be opening but was unable to give an opening date and stating instead that it would be 'soon'. The arrival of Domino's in the East Devon market town has sparked a mixed reaction among residents.

While some have welcomed the news, others are not keen to have a chain restaurant in the town due to the impact it may have on independent businesses.
