Decaturish dropped this bombshell this weekend…
Kathy Zickert, an attorney for Sterling Organization which owns the mall, confirmed in an interview to Decaturish that Costco is coming to the mall and could open in 2020 at the earliest. But that’s not all. The redevelopment would be mixed use and include 450 multifamily units – apartments and possibly town homes – and a 152 key hotel. There would be restaurant and retail space. She said at least two existing tenants – the AMC movie theater and the Burlington Coat Factory – will continue their leases at the space during the redevelopment.
“It’ll be Costco, retail, restaurants, office, multi-family, town homes,” she said. “We’ll have everything.”
Costco and Trader Joe’s have long been the vocal Decatur shoppers’ holy grail.
Let the anticipation begin to build again!
Decaturish is reporting that a “well-placed source” has said that Costco has greenlit a new store at North DeKalb Mall, with current plans to open in 2020.

Tomorrow’s News Today reports…
Raleigh, North Carolina-based Golden Corral is coming to an outparcel of North DeKalb Mall. I’d love to say that after all this time that Costco, too , is opening, but alas, their plans remain tabled for the time being. Golden Corral will open in a portion of the parking lot directly behind the current free-standing Chick-fil-A and former Checkers restaurant, nearest to Macy’s. At times, the space has been used to stage a traveling amusement park.
But one buffet chain doesn’t a revival make. However, TNT also notes that N. DeKalb Mall has also recently seen a Marshall’s and a Zaxby’s move in. Additionally, there’s talk that a larger Chick-fil-A will soon be built nearby. And as you just read above, according to TNT, the Costco plan isn’t totally dead, just “tabled” for the time being.
If the stars align, could North DeKalb Mall be poised for a comeback?
