The date for the anticipated re-opening of the Decatur Dairy Queen has been, and still is, a moving target.

But co-owner Nisar Momin — who, in 1986, bought the now demolished and sorely missed barn-shaped DQ down the road — thinks it may be soon.

"We might be able to open the DQ in the first week of November," Momin said in an email.

The fast food restaurant will be tucked into Arlo, a new mixed-use apartment complex at 245 East Trinity Place.

COCO + MISCHA, a boutique shop with a variety of regional goods mainly geared towards women, opened Aug. 26.

Balancing things out, an Atlanta-based menswear retailer called Curated is expected to open in a 1,248-foot space by the end of the month, according to Arlo community director Christi Ramirez.

A restaurant is in the works, too.

One is being negotiated for the property's corner space, Centro Development principal owner Kent Collins said.
