Let’s start off with some good news –

Kale Me Crazy  opened last week in Alpharetta at 50 Canton Street.

European grocery chain Lidl has announced opening dates for its first three Atlanta-area stores, two of which are in Cobb County. Lidl’s southwest Marietta location, located at the corner of Barrett Parkway and Powder Springs Road, is scheduled to open Jan. 16. The grocery chain’s store in Mableton, on Floyd Road near the intersection of Nickajack Road, has its grand opening scheduled for Feb. 13. A store in Snellville is scheduled to open Jan. 30. For more information, we refer you to the Marietta Daily Journal.

In Woodstock, the AJC  reported that Lidl US LLC sought the variances for a store proposed for the southwest corner of Bells Ferry Road and Eagle Drive and Cherokee County approved it. The location is close to an existing Aldi store.

Your Pie Canton opens January 25th at the Canton Exchange. Here are the details.

A New Jersey-based sandwich shop, Primo Hoagies, is coming to town with its first Atlanta area location according to Tomorrow’s New Today. The first location is planned for Sandy Springs, maybe we will get some OTP!

Souper Jenny gave us an update on their Roswell location.

Just visited location today. If all goes well thinking six more weeks. Thanks for being so patient and we will be there soon!

Atlanta is lucky to be selected for the exhibit Candytopia – where candy is the art! This four-month interactive art installation celebrates the vibrant colors and flavors of our favorite sugary delights across over a dozen environments, from flying unicorn pigs to a marshmallow tsunami. Bring your family, your friends, and your sweet tooth for an experience like none other in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. Tickets go on sale 1/15 and the attraction opens 2/8. 

In Canton, Nuevos Amigos Cocina Mexicana is aiming for a February opening after a long construction delay. This is the same owners as El Nopal in Marietta. 

In regards to closings:

In Woodstock, Sew Main Street and the Whole Nine Yarns will close on 2/15/19 so the owner can spend more time with their family. That is a prime downtown Woodstock location that I am sure will not stay empty long!

East Cobb’s Boston Market is being replaced by a Chipotle according to Tomorrow’s News Today.

In Roswell, popular french bistro, Pastis, has closed after 20 years in business. Atlanta Eater has the Scoop on what may go in their space.
