World of Beer has closed its location on Chastain Road in Kennesaw. The beer-centric eatery which opened in late 2014 quietly closed a little over a week ago according to local sources.  The nearly 4,000 square foot restaurant was located in Madison Place at Chastain, a shopping center also home to Marlow's Tavern, Del Taco and Uncle Maddio's Pizza, among other tenants.  Tampa, Florida-based World of Beer continues to operate just one metro Atlanta location, in the bottom of the Viewpoint condo building on Peachtree Street in midtown.  A World of Beer location that was planned for Dunwoody in 2015 is still not open and seems to have been abandoned [the space is listed as available on the property's leasing page] despite the location's listing as "coming soon" on the company website.  For what it's worth, the Kennesaw location, too, is still listed as active on the company's website.

Cincinnati-based Kroger, which industry experts indicate controls just under one third of the metro Atlanta grocery market, is doubling down on some of its most successful locations. This effort includes enhancements to both its North Decatur Square and Toco Hill stores in-town, as well as other OTP stores like those on Buford Drive and Riverside Parkway in Lawrenceville, among others.

Lush, purveyor of fresh handmade cosmetics, is coming back to Lenox Square after closing at the mall in 2011.  Previously located on the mall's main level near Bloomingdale's, the new store will be near Lovesac, and will occupy the former Bachrach store. The store, estimated to be about 2,400 square feet, will be on par with the company's other two Atlanta area shops in Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody and Mall of Georgia in Buford.  Both the Perimeter Mall and Mall of Georgia stores reopened earlier this year in significantly larger spaces than they'd previously occupied.  The Lenox Square store, which opened in 2008, was less than 1,000 square feet but was complemented by a shop-in-shop on the main floor of Macy's which as of now is still open.
