In front of the old Guthries Chicken building that also housed "Fatboys Restaurant", the one adjacent to the new Bank independent on Florence Blvd and across from Five Guys and Blue Coast Burrito there is a sign announcing that Dairy Queen is coming to that location.
I don't know if they will tear down the existing building or extensively renovate it but looks like a third Shoals Dairy Queen location coming in addition to the one that is in the old Back Yard burgers building downtown and the new location they just opened, this last week, over in Muscle Shoals on Avalon. I remember for a while Dairy Queen vacated the Shoals area and it was questionable if they would return and now they not only have returned but are returning with a vengeance with three new locations.
I like Dairy Queen and I'm glad they have returned to the Shoals. I wonder though if this new location along with the new one in Muscle Shoals will severely hurt the business of the one Downtown? Maybe it won't affect it too much but the newest location, along Florence Blvd is much better, in my opinion. I've also heard others mention that they would be putting a location out on Cloverdale Road near the new WalMart but I've seen no evidence of that happening. They are constructing a new, large, carwash beside the old Fred's Building which also housed Yazoo Hardware which is also going out of business.
At least this is good news for all of us who love our Blizzards, we'll have two additional locations to get them at.
