Crocs Quietly Goes Under at Lenox Square

Silly shoe store has closed at Lenox 

Crocs, the love them or hate em shoe retailer has closed its store at Lenox Square.  The store, which opened in 2011 on the second floor of the popular Buckhead mall, closed abruptly last night.  The store, which replaced a Crocs kiosk in Lenox Square, sold the brand's full line of men's, women's and children's footwear.  

Amazingly, despite many harsh critics of the shoes, the company celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2012 and has sold more than 200 million pairs of shoes in more than 90 countries around the world.

The next closest Crocs stores are located in Town Center at Cobb in Kennesaw and Sugarloaf Mills in Lawrenceville.  

The Crocs page on the Lenox Square website was still active as of 1PM today and lists the store's "special hours" through January 1st, 2017.  As seen in the photo above, the store's sign has been removed from the store's exterior and workers were packing up remaining inventory today.  The fact that the store closed in advance of Christmas week, indicates that mall management has a new tenant lined up, and the tenant is eager to begin renovations.  

Will you miss Crocs from Lenox Square? Are you surprised the company has lasted as long as it has?  What would you like to see open in its place?
