New Releases & Updates:

  • Above the Ridge Outfitters (Rumor-o-Meter: 9) -Update: Opening September 8th!
    • While Trailhead Bicycle will not be immediately moving into the space they own on Hamilton St, they have sub-leased the space to Above the Ridge Outfitters, who is opening a second location. The owners are great supporters of local events at their current location in Ringgold, so we hope they will do the same in Downtown Dalton. Address: 300 S Hamilton St
  • Rak Outfitters @ Former K-Mart (Rumor-o-Meter: 4)
    • We hear Rak has abandoned plans for opening a home store in the Mill. The space they were slated to go is currently being used as an event space. We hear some rumblings that they may be relocating across Walnut Ave to the former K-Mart shopping center. Address: 1308 W Walnut Ave
  • Habitat for Humanity ReStore (Rumor-o-Meter: 9)
    • This hidden gem of home rennovation is relocating from a hard-to-find location near the hospital to a space near Downtown Dalton. The current projection for opening at the new location is Fall 2018. Address: 111 N Glenwood Ave
  • Big Changes at the BB&T Building (Rumor-o-Meter: 9)
    • HealthOne Alliance/Alliant Health Plans are relocating 120 people to Downtown Dalton in late 2018. Barrett Properties recently purchased the building and all BB&T staff are relocating to the first floor. Address: 201 W Waugh St
  • Native Kitchen @ The Mill (Rumor-o-Meter: 9)
    • Construction has started on the Native Kitchen space at The Mill. They plan to occupy two spaces, with a mezzanine seating area above the kitchen. They have a pop-up shop with coffee, juice, baked goods and more at The Mill from 7AM-2PM every weekday. Address: Inside The Mill @ 825 Chattanooga Ave
  • The Mill @ Crown Garden (Rumor-o-Meter: 10!)
    • Work is continuing at The Mill with Native Kitchen, a hair salon, home decor store, and small bar under construction now. Current tenant Sol De Mayo Tacos is already expanding (Yeah!), and recent pop-up shops have featured Belgian waffles and fresh cut flowers. Future tenants could include a restaurant, fitness classes, and more boutique shopping options. With a cool atmosphere and free internet, if you’re looking for a spot to hang out and work or study for a little while (besides Panera or Starbucks), check it out. Open now. Address: 825 Chattanooga Ave
  • Emery Street Market (Formerly the “new Green Spot”) (Rumor-o-Meter: 10!)
    • Looks like the name dispute has been settled, with the “new Green Spot” changing the name to Emery Street Market. Either way, it’s a cool new grocery store at the site of the “old Green Spot”. We wish them luck. Open for business now. Address: 309 W Emory St

A hotel was originally planned for the site, but the developer is now hoping to put two restaurants at the location: Olive Garden and a Cheddar’s. Both brands are owned by Darden Restaurant Group. Exact address is unknown, but it is near the outlet mall.
