Please find a number of moves, openings, relocations and closures at Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza after the jump.
David Yurman will soon relocate to the former Kate Spade space in the Luxury Wing as Kate Spade itself relocated to Phipps Plaza. David Yurman is moving temporarily, as they will be expanding their current space to include the adjacent Mont Blanc space. Mont Blanc is relocating a few doors down to the former Aldo.
Gregory's, located on the first level of the Neiman Marcus wing, will reportedly close by the end of June. The store was never popular, much like its predecessor Pure Denim, but somehow kept the doors open over two years.
Jimmy Choo is relocating from Phipps Plaza to Buckhead Atlanta later this year. This move puts its first floor Phipps Plaza location in play. I've thus far been unable to confirm anyone interested in and or taking the space, but expect it will be a desirable spot for luxury retailers looking to enter the market.
Mistura Timepieces opened quietly in a hidden location near the former Carol's Daughter and Forever 21. Mistura has only four stores in the North America, and Atlanta is home to two, in Lenox Square and Perimeter Mall. The others are in Dallas, Texas and Toronto, Canada.
Intermix, currently located on the first level of the Sak's Fifth Avenue wing at Phipps Plaza, may be on the move. The designer retailer was acquired by Gap last year, and its move is reportedly due to Gap's efforts to bring all its brands into Lenox. Earlier this year, Gap opened its Athleta store at Lenox Square joining existing locations of Gap, Gap Kids / Baby and Banana Republic. (Gap's other brand, Old Navy, is located at Buckhead Station, just off GA 400.) No location within Lenox Square has been announced, but with the former Kate Spade space available soon, it would make the most sense.
The Cheesecake Factory opened yesterday at the front of Lenox Square. The existing location, about a mile south on Peachtree, is now closed. (The former location opened in 1993 and was the company's eighth restaurant.)
Zinburger Wine and Burger Bar opens June 17th
True Food Kitchen opens June 24th.
