Business looks very positive for the town of North Adams.

The owners of the popular Freight Yard Pub were approved for a new venture in the former Dairy Queen on Curran Highway.

Colleen Taylor told the Planning Board on Monday that the property would be a pickup, drive-thru eatery open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

 iBerkshires.Com. reports that The board also approved the expansion of the former Rick's Quality Auto Sales, which was purchased by Joseph T. Dean and Michael Libardi, operating as D&L LLC, for $123,724 on July 2 from Alfred V. "Rick" Ostrowski.

The plans were approved with 50 vehicles as a condition.

An application to operate a sporting goods store was continued by the board, which requested more information on plans for the exterior, signage, lighting and security.
William Preite plans to open in the former Doran's Carpet Shop to sell fishing and hunting gear, along with ammunition and firearms he described as high-end collectible pieces.

The board agreed to continue the hearing and asked Preite to provide the information they sought and suggested his landlord appear to answer questions about the building. Preite had sought to open a sporting goods store in Williamstown last year but abandoned the effort in the face of opposition.
