Fortuna Dairy Queen not happening; Humboldt’s Last Week of news

It’s been confirmed Dairy Queen pulled out of a potential deal that would have added a store location on Riverwalk Drive in Fortuna.
The ice cream and fast food joint also known as DQ decided to DQ the Friendly City after they determined the location would not bring in enough customers. Do you agree with their assessment? While it’s certainly not a matter of life and death you can let the chain know how you feel with the hashtag #DQhumboldt (Facebook/Twitter).
Humboldt Petroleum is the company that tried to bring on the Blizzards. They said they’re still looking at other options for the location at 1791 Riverwalk Drive which currently hosts a Shell gas station.
Luckily there are plenty of other spots to get tasty treats all over Humboldt.
The scoop begins at 5:53.
