Phipps Stays Local For New Italian Concept Jedal

Seemingly experiencing difficulty in landing new national retailers, SIMON property group's Phipps Plaza in Buckhead got creative in filling available space. With a new push toward signing local retailers, Jedal will be the first of a number of locally owned businesses to open with the posh Buckhead mall. Husband and wife Alessio and Jennifer Dainelli will open Jedal in the former Origins on the upper level of the mall above Tiffany & Co. A native of Italy, Alessio aims to bring high-end handbags, footwear and accessories rarely found outside Italy to Buckhead. Some of the designers that will be available include Carlo Pignatelli, Casadei, Les Tropezzeines, Le Silla, Gianmarco Lorenzi, Gianni Barbato, Giuseppe Zanotti, Roberto Cavalli, Barbara Bui, Blumarine and Rene Caovilla. The opening of the store is set for the last week of April. Repeat Atanta!

From what I understand from talking to my friend that is the GM at Gwinnett Place mall, Simon is lowering rates at Phipps to unheard of levels. Let's hope that Phipps doesn't start to let too many tacky retailers in.
