Intown organic market calling it quits.
Return To Eden is closing after more than two decades in business. Return To Eden opened in 1993 at a time when competition in the natural and organic foods sector was not nearly what it is today. The 7,500 square foot natural foods grocery store, located in Cheshire Square at the corner of Cheshire Bridge & LaVista Roads, is slated to close November 29th. The locally owned shop cited a number of issues that contributed to the decision to close.
"While we were on a tentative path to recovery, this year has proved too difficult for us — the brutal winter, the changing traffic patterns in the neighborhood, increased competition in the Atlanta marketplace, and escalating operational costs and needs, etc., all took their toll."
From now until closing, remaining inventory is 20% off.
Ownership encourages patrons to support other Atlanta area independent organic markets such as Rainbow Natural Foods (Decatur), Nuts'n'Berries (Brookhaven) and Sevananda (Little Five Points).
