[EXCLUSIVE] Chick-fil-A-Backed Kefi is Closing in Buckhead

After nearly two years in business, Kefi is closing in Buckhead.  Backed by Chick-fil-A and described as a "modern family club," Kefi opened at the landmark Buckhead Triangle shopping center in August 2019.  The concept - toy store, coffee shop, co-working and daycare - all in one roughly 29,000 square foot "playtainment" space, was created by Red Wagon Ventures, an incubator funded by Chick-fil-A. Like Chick-fil-A, Kefi was closed on Sundays.  The concept seemed far-fetched from the start, and perhaps tried to be too much.

[EXCLUSIVE] Free People Bringing Their Athleisure Line to Atlanta

Atlanta will soon be home to one of the first stand alone locations of FP Movement, an athleisure line from popular women's retailer Free People.  Permits filed with the City of Atlanta indicate that the new FP Movement will open at Phipps Plaza in place of ENNYLUAP, a local boutique from designer Amanda Williamson.  Before ENNYLUAP, the Lilly Pulitzer adjacent space was occupied by ill-fated children's boutique Peek.  According to the permit filed for converting the space, an estimated $180,000 will be spent renovating the roughly 1,600 square foot space to suite FP's needs.
