It's a question "Arnold Patch" readers are asking on a daily basis as they've watched the construction of the new store progress.
Despite the fact that the Ross Dress for Less sign is up and the lights are on at Arnold's soon-to-be newest retailer, the doors aren't expected to open until fall.

Arlen Castenada, co-owner of CrossFit 636, says rather than focusing on exercise machines to keep his clients fit, he favors a "whole body" approach.
There's a new gym in Arnold called CrossFit 636, but you won't see any of the typical exercise machines there.

Castenada, who lives in Mehlville, has taught everything from Olympic-level …
