From all of the tips I’ve received this week, it seems that the Golden Corral is going into the area by the Drury Inn and Olive Garden off St. Augustine. They are supposed to start construction in the fall.
On Bemiss Road, the new Waffle House going in by the Dollar General looks very close to opening. Workers were in there Friday afternoon so hopefully another week maybe.
I’m still fielding questions about the work on Inner Perimeter where the site is being cleared, and it is going to be a new Family Dollar.
Work continued this week, although the sign isn’t up yet, on the future location of the Coyoacan restaurant on St. Augustine. The Mexican restaurant is very popular in Quitman and it’s good to see a restaurant back in that location where the Wooden Nickel and the Green Iguana were.
The new shop called Birdville in the Walmart plaza on Inner Perimeter really sounds like a cool place and I plan on stopping in this week as I understand it’s “unusual and interesting.”
Unfortunately, don’t forget that the Potter’s House is closing its doors soon, but will at least be open through Aug. 10. Very sad to see them go as they’ve been around for a number of years, and if you’ve been a customer, you should stop in and wish them well this week.
Big Al’s down in Lake Park is open now near Rascal’s, and work is starting on the new RV place off Exit 5 there as well.
I also understand Hooter’s is gearing up for their grand re-opening soon, with a sign up telling customers that they’ll be open in early September.
They are going in the same location it used to be in between Texas Roadhouse and Outback.
Has anybody heard about a Walmart Express in Adel or who might be going into the old IGA on Hill Avenue?
If you know or if I’ve missed something, please let me know this week!
