Here’s an update to some business news we first told you about last month:
Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is looking to open in mid-July.
Said franchise owner Jason Ellis in an email, “We are well into construction and expect to be open for business the second or third week of July. We are accepting applications at the store, two billboards are going up next week (one south of Eason Blvd and one north of Hwy 45 in Saltillo) and one digital ad beginning July 1 at Barnes Crossing. We are very excited to begin serving Tupelo with the great barbecue and service that Dickey’s is known for.”
Dickey’s will be in the Shops at Barnes Crossing on North Gloster Street, which is home to Margarita’s Mexican Grill, Bed Bath and Beyond, David’s Bridal/Men’s Wearhouse and Dollar Tree.
Dickey’s will go in the northeast corner of the building, adjacent to the “tower” where Southern Bath and Kitchen used to be.
