Dickey’s Barbecue is Davis-bound

A Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has a lease and business license to occupy the former McDonald’s Express space at 640 W. C0vell Blvd., Suite D, in Anderson Plaza. It could be open as soon as January, the owner reports. The spot has been vacant for a year.

The owners are James and Amanda Domsic of Sacramento. James is an Army veteran who served two tours in Iraq. This is their “first and only business,” and they’re excited, especially as they look forward to the birth of their second child, due in mid-February.

The franchise chain started in Dallas and specializes in Texas-style barbecue. It uses fresh meats and gluten-free sauces. James said he plans to feature beers from Texas, and maybe some local craft brews. He’ll accept Aggie Cash, and let children 12 and under eat for free on Sundays.

The service is similar to Panda Express or Chipotle, with walk-up ordering. Barbecued meats include ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, ham, turkey or chicken breast, and sausage. For those of us looking for lighter eats, there are salads, and meal combos under 500 calories. Other add-ons include various baked potatoes, beans, green beans, coleslaw, potato salad or casserole, okra, fries, chips, mac and cheese, and rolls.

Family Dollar opened on Thursday at 1260 Lake Blvd., Suite 102, in West Davis, next to Westlake Market.

There’s a ribbon-cutting set for 9 a.m. on Thursday, and its grand opening is Saturday, Oct. 12. The grand opening event will feature bags and drink giveaways, coupons, and special deals, an employee said.

T.J.Maxx’s new Davis store will open Sunday, Oct. 20, at 4621 Second St., next to Target. The off-price retailer will open another store in Sacramento that same day, at 2721 Marconi Ave. Both stores are 25,000 square feet.

Opening-day hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The first 1,000 customers will receive reusable bags. Regular hours will be 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays.

“Departments include fashion and accessories for the entire family, and home, jewelry, beauty, pet accessories, toys and more,” a news release said.

It offers more than 16,000 name brands at discount prices, and features a single-line queue for faster checkout, the release said. The new store adds approximately 60 full- and part-time jobs to Davis.

Lots of people have asked me about other stores going in near next to T.J.Maxx, but no tenants have been announced.
