A well placed source tells me the new Cook-Out on Northside Drive will open before the end of the year, possibly as soon as this weekend. I peeked inside and this location definitely has plenty of interior seating, unlike the logjam / cluster often experienced at the Cook-Out on Moreland Avenue.
Dunkin' Donuts is opening a new location on Buford Highway in Norcross. The new donut shop is opening in a heavily renovated former Arby's.
Breakers Korean BBQ is coming to Gwinnett Place Drive near Gwinnett Place Mall.
TK Bridal opened adjacent to the newly relocated Marshalls in Sandy Springs. The bridal salon is to the right of Marshalls, occupying the remaining portion of the former ROSS Dress For Less.
As I was first to report earlier this month, Here to Serve has gone through an ownership change. Tom Catherall's ex-wife Leigh now controls the restaurant group and officially closed Shout restaurant at Colony Square last night.
At 75% off, C. Wonder at Lenox Square has very little merchandise left, and will cease operations as of Friday 12/26. The C. Wonder outlet at the Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta in Woodstock has a "decent" amount of clothing left, but not much else, is also offering 75% off the lowest marked price and will also close 12/26. As I reported last month, C. Wonder plans to close most of its retail stores as it shifts its focus to wholesale accounts.
A new Steak 'n Shake is coming to Savannah. The new restaurant will be on West Congress Street.
Sweet Dee's Bakeshop has closed on Main Street in Tucker. The independent bakeshop opened in downtown Tucker in early 2012 and had become popular in the neighborhood. Reportedly, the owner received a job offer too "sweet" to pass up, and closed the shop as a result. The shop is reportedly available and would potentially be "turn key" for any replacement bakery.
