Goodwill Setting Up Shop In North Buckhead

While retailers everywhere are experiencing significant declines in sales, a few are expanding. Thrift and consignment stores are popping up in vacated spaces around the Atlanta area more than ever... even in Buckhead! Goodwill signed a lease for a nearly 33,000 square-foot retail and donation center in north Buckhead at 3906 Roswell Road, just north of Piedmont Road. The space was most recently home to one of metro Atlanta's last Stein Mart stores which closed earlier this year. Neighboring retailers High Country Outfitters and Atlantic Wine remain open. No official opening date has been announced though with alterations to the building in progress, its likely the store will be open in time for the back to school season. Repeat Atlanta!

Oh brother. Buckhead ain't what it used to be. Sign of the times, indeed. Sigh.

Great news! Now I won't have to drive all the way to Sandy Springs or to the Wal-Mart in Dunwoody to shop for casual clothes.

Maybe all the pretentious a**-clowns in Buckhead with their underwater condo's and leased vehicles can move to more prestigious addresses. Please.

maybe some of the Hermes shoppers will drop off their oldies at the Goodwill on their way to Streets of Buckhead! Hooray- $300 Hermes flip-flops for $5 bucks!
