[ALERT] New R.L. Stine Based Movie to Film at North DeKalb Mall

The status of the planned redevelopment of North DeKalb Mall is still unclear, but there is renewed interest in the mall for a familiar alternative use.  As first reported by our friends at Decaturish, the mall is currently being used as a location for the new feature film Fear Street, a movie adaptation of the popular R.L. Stine book series by the same name.  R.L. Stine's other popular book series, Goosebumps, has already been brought to the big screen with Goosebumps and Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, in 2015 and 2018 respectively, both of which were filmed in Georgia.

[CLOSURE ALERT] After More Than 35 Years, Burger King Cedes its Throne in Marietta

The Burger King restaurant at 2716 Sandy Plains Road in Marietta has closed.  The freestanding restaurant was located in front of the largely vacant Sprayberry Crossing shopping center and reportedly closed without warning last week.  The Marietta location is at least the second Burger King restaurant to close in metro Atlanta in just the past two months, the first being the closure of the Peachtree Corners restaurant on Holcomb Bridge Road in early March.

[CLOSURE ALERT] Ingles to Shutter Two Georgia Stores

Ingles confirmed earlier this week that it plans to close two Georgia stores by the end of the month.  The stores, both located in Lawrenceville,  are due to close permanently as of April 26.  One store is located at 1050 Grayson Highway and according to real estate resources, is 62,500 square feet and originally opened in 1986.  The other store, at 1154 Lawrenceville Highway, is about 78,000 square feet and opened in 2002, according to real estate resources.  The Lawrenceville Highway store featured a fuel center, unlike the Grayson Highway store.  The Grayson Highway store, however, is owned by Ingles, according to property records.  No immediate plans for the soon to be vacant stores have been made public.
