Dairy Queen is expected to open “in a couple of weeks”

Officials at the new Skillman-Abrams Dairy Queen haven’t released an opening date or details about grand opening festivities, but contractors working feverishly inside say they expect the store to be ready “in a couple of weeks.”

Does that mean we’ll have Oreo Blizzards by Election Day? Hunger Busters by Thanksgiving?

We can only hope, Lake Highlands.

Dairy Queen’s “coming soon” sign went up in April on the former Chicken Express store at 6445 Eastridge next to the Skillman Home Depot, and since then Dilly Bar die-hards have been counting down the days.  Oh, and forget pumpkin pie. I’m thinking the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Blizzard Cake sounds like the perfect thing to take to Thanksgiving at Aunt Velma’s.
