[EXCLUSIVE] Sears Closing Last Georgia Store

ToNeTo Atlanta has learned that Sears is currently working towards closing its store at Town Center at Cobb in Kennesaw. The two level store, which opened along with the mall in 1986, is one of five anchors at the property.  Its closure, which will leave the mall with (for now) two Macy's, JCPenney and Belk as anchors, also leaves Georgia without a full-service Sears store. [JCPenney filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on May 15 and plans to reveal a first round of store closures in early June.]  The  Kennesaw Sears, which recently reopened to liquidate its merchandise, is according to several job postings, looking to hire temporary employees to help wind down operations.

[UPDATE] There is Now Just One Romano's Macaroni Grill Left in Georgia

Romano's Macaroni Grill has permanently closed its restaurants on Windward Parkway in Alpharetta and on Dallas Highway in West Cobb.  The closures, which were reportedly confirmed by the company earlier this week, do not indicate a reason for them, but the effects of COVID-19 are believed to have played a part.  Prior to the notice of their permanent closure being sent to members of their email list, both restaurants, like so many in Georgia and around the country, had been "closed temporarily."
