Bits & Bites

Fabletics at Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody is now open.  The new store is the first in Georgia for the digitally native brand.  ToNeto Atlanta exclusively reported on the store's planned opening this past February.  The brand, for which actress Kate Hudson is both a part owner and spokesperson, has been expanding its brick and mortar presence as of late, and like fellow athleteisure brand Athleta, prefers to be near Lululemon, as they are in Perimeter Mall.  In addition to the storefront, Fabletics has a "grab & go" mini store in the front of the full-sized store, with select styles for quick, easy and limited contact shopping.  
Tasty China in Sandy Springs has rebranded as Sho Spicy.  The restaurant, located in the Kroger anchored Fountain Oaks shopping center, still features Szechuan fare, but is now under new ownership and management.  Tasty China at Fountain Oaks first opened in late 2018.  

Breadwinner Cafe recently opened its new Dunwoody location in the former Wright Gourmet space in Dunwoody Village.  Wright, a neighborhood mainstay, closed last April after about 35 years in business.  The original Breadwinner is located on Sandy Springs Circle in Sandy Springs.  

Elie Tahari at Phipps Plaza has closed, joining other recent closures including Jeffrey, Sur la Table, Philipp Plein, and others.  

A new restaurant called Vista Vibes Restaurant, featuring live music and southern food, is coming soon to Northlake Festival.  The new restaurant is opening in place of Coco Cabana, a Cuban restaurant.  

Buffalo Wild Wings has opened a new location on Haynes Bridge Road in Alpharetta.  ToNeTo Atlanta exclusively reported on the planned relocation this past November.  The new restaurant showcases the Atlanta-based chain's latest design and branding package.  

Taco Mac recently opened its newest location at 835 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road in Lawrenceville.  The restaurant, the first new Taco Mac to open since 2017, is the 27th overall location for the Atlanta-based chain.  The new Lawrenceville location replaced Olde Towne Tavern & Grille, which closed in the roughly 9,200 square foot freestanding building last year.  Taco Mac, which was sold in 2018 to a group of private investors, is once again in growth mode with a new location slated to open in a roughly 4,900 square foot corner space in Poplar Square shopping center in Hiram, by the end of the year.   

Both DICK'S Sporting Goods and Golf Galaxy will celebrate the grand openings of new locations at Cumberland Mall August 21-23.  The sibling stores share a roughly 70,000 square foot space on the upper level of the former Sears, each with their own branded entrances.  In addition to DICK'S and Golf Galaxy, entertainment facility Round1 and Planet Fitness will both open in the coming months, also in portions of the former Sears department store.  A separate mixed-use development including both office and residential components, is planned for the former Sears auto building and associated parking outside the former Sears store.  

Georgia's Own Credit Union is opening a new branch in the former Fidelity (Ameris) Bank at the corner of Ashford Dunwoody Road and Perimeter Center East across from Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody.
