[THAT'S A WRAP!] DVF Closing Boutique at Lenox Square

The Diane von Furstenberg (DVF) store at Lenox Square is closing.  The roughly 2,000 square foot boutique on the mall's main level opened in early 2015.  The store is currently liquidating all in-stock merchandise with savings of 40 to 60% off.  It is witty and rather fitting that the store - whose founder Diane von Furstenberg is credited with the "creation" of the now iconic wrap dress - chose to display a sign saying "THAT'S A WRAP!" to announce the closure.  

[EXCLUSIVE] Highland Bakery Down and Out in Decatur

The Decatur outpost of Highland Bakery has closed permanently.  The roughly 3,100 square foot restaurant, located in the street level retail space at The Place on Ponce at 319 West Ponce de Leon Avenue, first opened in late 2016.  The restaurant has been closed since March 16, when it and so many other restaurants were essentially forced to pivot to takeout only, or, as Highland Bakery did, close indefinitely.  The restaurant posted a message on the 16th indicating that  the closure was only temporary, but evidence to the contrary now confirms otherwise.

Updated signage, branding and employee uniforms confirm that the new name of the project most recently known as The Shops Buckhead Atlanta will be Buckhead Village District.  

[EXCLUSIVE] Jeni's Swings For the Fences With Planned Location at The Battery Atlanta

Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams will in the coming months open its seventh metro Atlanta location.  The new "scoop shop" is slated to open at The Battery Atlanta at Truist Park.  Specifically, the new shop will open alongside upcoming tenants Savi Provisions, Jittery Joe's and One Medical in the street level of the new Aloft hotel building along Battery Avenue.  Interestingly, the opening of Jeni's appears to be in addition to, rather than instead of, existing ice cream shop Häagen-Dazs, but that seems likely to change one way or another.
