...NOT! Atlanta's endless supply of mattress stores is getting even bigger with the addition of yet another, this a Mattress Firm in the former Coco Loco restaurant on Sidney Marcus Boulevard near Piedmont Road in the Buckhead Crossing shopping center. Coco Loco, a Cuban and Caribbean eatery, closed this past February having been in the center since 1988.
Work on Mattress Firm is already well underway with the interior done, it just needs inventory. Workers were preparing for exterior signage on my visit this week, so it's quite possible they will be open within 14 days or so. Just in case you are keeping track, in addition to other chains, Mattress Firm already operates two location in Buckhead, one adjacent to the Embassy Suites, next to Verizon, and the other less than a mile away across from the shuttered Chima restaurant.
