Fans of the Britt’s Chips won’t have to make much of an adjustment to their routines once the local chip wagon moves to its new location. Britt’s Chips is moving across the road from its current site at 244 Highway 15 to 10 Ferrara Drive.

“They’re moving across the road from where they were,” Smiths Falls town councillor Dawn Quinn explained to fellow council members at a March 19 meeting. “Now they’ll be in the town of Smiths Falls.”

Town councillors voted to approve a request from owner Kelly King to make the move, and to operate the chip wagon at 10 Ferrara Drive, where Canadian Tire is located, from early April until Thanksgiving 2018.

“And I must say, they’re very good chips,” commented Councillor Lorraine Allen.

According to their facebook page, the owners applied to move to a new location because their current lease is expiring.
