Closings Around Town

Update: The Counter in Roswell also closed, here’s The Scoop from Tomorrow’s News Today.

Some iconic OTP restaurants announced their closures last week.

In Roswell, the Current Hub reported that as of Dec 31, Greenwoods Restaurant and The Yellow House special events facility have closed their doors, according to a recorded message. Greenwoods had served the community since 1986, and their fried chicken was a popular dish among locals. Their sister bbq restaurant, The Swallow at the Hollow, is also closing per the restaurant’s phone recording. Atlanta Eats had raved about them saying:

They’re making an art of bbq at Swallow at the Hollow, a little place on Green Street that cooks the ‘cue sauce over the hot coals, and sends out a macaroni and cheese that should be on your Atlanta food bucket list.

In Marietta, Tomorrow’s News Today reported that The Rib Ranch closed Christmas Eve after 35 years of business. A repeat winner at Taste of Marietta, The Rib Ranch was a favorite for locals near and far.

ITP has seen its share of closures lately too, but Rosa Mexicana at Atlantic Station was one that caught our eye since it was one of the original restaurants of the Atlantic Station project made popular with its tableside guacamole. We are anxious to see what takes over the space that had been a popular, 200 seat restaurant.

Additionally, some retailers have announced closures too.

In Woodstock, Linden gift store located in the Towne Lake area reported on their Facebook page and via a customer newsletter that:

Linden will be closing the end of January. Many of you know that my husband suffered a serious accident two years ago, with that being said, I am needed at home…On the flip side, we will travel more, more trips to France to bring treasures home to sell at the Scotts show.

You can currently purchase items at 50% off at 2340 Towne Lake Pkwy in Woodstock, so don’t delay. Expect their loyal patrons to be buying them out!

In Kennesaw, Entourage Clothing is moving to an online store only. Follow them on Facebook for the latest trends and sales.

In 2017, the volume of traffic and business we saw at from our loyal Kennesaw-area customers was truly amazing.  But as the online business increased steadily, the foot traffic to our Kennesaw store likewise decreased.  As a business, we must evaluate shifting market conditions and follow the direction of our customers.

We wish all these owners and their employees the best of luck in the future endeavors.
