DECATUR — Del's Popcorn Shop on Merchant Street​ in downtown Decatur is closed until Monday, Aug. 13, for maintenance and inventory work.

The Hickory Point Mall location remains open.

When the downtown store reopens, it will have more of the unique snacks it has become known for, said owner Kemper Willcut II.

The inventory has been downsized in recent months while Willcut dealt with issues stemming from a 2015 fire that severely damaged the structure and led to the business being closed for 18 months.

A grand reopening event is in the works, Willcut said.​
