Clothing and home goods store opens at Arlo mixed-use development

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt September 1, 2016

One of the first businesses slated for the Arlo mixed-use development in Decatur has opened its doors.

The announcement contained other news about businesses going into Arlo, including an update on when Dairy Queen might return to Decatur.

COCO + MISCHA – which sells handmade, vintage and unique clothing as well as accessories, home goods and gifts – will be next door to the Dairy Queen, which is expected to return in a month. The shop’s address is 245 E. Trinity Place, #1212.

Parking is currently free, but according to a press release from the company it will be paid at some point in the future. The grand opening will be Sept. 3 and will coincide with the Decatur Book Festival.

“We will have adult and kid drinks to cheers our arrival and some special offers,” the press release says. “We hope that people will park in our deck and start at COCO + MISCHA before heading into the festivities. Low Low Knows Bones is our neighbor and will be having their grand opening as well.”

COCO + MISCHA held a pop-up shop on Clairmont next to the Decatur Welcome Center during the holidays last year. The pop-up shop got a “great” response, the press release says. The permanent brick and mortar store officially opened on Aug. 30.

“For a tiny shop, we carry a big mix of things,” the press release says. “It’s mostly handmade and vintage, and we have everything from clothes & shoes to candles and jewelry. We feature local makers like Fossil & Hide and Paper Raven Co., and we also have lots of artists from all over the country like Jamie + The Jones and Apoterra Skincare.”

The shop will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
