[CLOSURE ALERT] Cinnabon Closed at Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody

Cinnabon has closed its location at Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody.  The eatery shuttered last week and while some had speculated the closure was due to a planned renovation, a representative from the Atlanta-based chain confirmed to ToNeTo Atlanta Monday that the closure is permanent.  The eatery opened at the suburban mall in late 2013.  Cinnabon previously closed location(s) in Lenox Square in Buckhead.  

Cinnabon, a division of Sandy Springs-based FOCUS Brands, debuted both a redesigned logo and look in 2015 at Alpharetta's North Point Mall.  North Point, like Cumberland Mall in Smyrna and Perimeter Mall, is owned by Brookfield Properties Retail, but unlike Cumberland and North Point which saw renovation of their Cinnabons, Perimeter will not.  The company representative who responded to our inquiry did not provide a reason for the closure and our subsequent attempt to learn the reason was unsuccessful. 

Cinnabon is the second food court closure in the mall in the past few months.  Panera Bread closed their location in the mall this past December after about four years in business.  

Despite the closures, the mall remains quite popular and more food options are being added to the mall and surrounding areas.  

Breakers Korean Barbecue is expected to open later this spring in the former The Pub at the front of the mall.  

Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar is being planned for a new outparcel along Ashford Dunwoody Road with a lease for a second new restaurant in a separate adjacent outparcel reportedly close. Another lease is reportedly in the works to fill The Cowfish which closed in early January at the front of the mall.  

Are you surprised by the closure of Cinnabon at Perimeter Mall?  When was the last time you had a Cinnabon?   What would you like to see open in place of Cinnabon at Perimeter Mall?

I ate at the location at Lenox once and was not impressed. It is really over priced, way too sweet and very unhealthy. Even if you want to "cheat" and eat an unhealthy treat not sure this would be it.

Yall dont want to know this but perimeter has many issues with its food courts, rats at the old subway and cinnabon had a water issue where the pipelines of retail bathrooms were mixing with their water supply. I used to work there so this isnt just an upset consumer making a crazy claim, i directly experienced these things as a retail worker there. Sorry if you were eating lol

Amazing that required restaurant inspections never picked up on your "crazy claim".
