Opening Dates for Avalon Retailers

With only a few days until the highly anticipated Avalon opens in Alpharetta, Georgia, officials with North American Properties (NAP) recently announced opening dates for retailers. A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled at 9 a.m. on Oct. 30 to celebrate the grand opening of the $600 million mixed-use project. Avalon’s retail component is 98 percent leased with 90 percent of tenants opening at 10 a.m. following the ribbon cutting.

 

On opening day, guests can visit national retailers such as C. Wonder and J. Crew and local favorites like Fab’rik and Bantam + Biddy restaurant. In addition to the 54 opening on Oct. 30, new retailers and restaurants will open steadily throughout the remainder of this year and into early next.

 

“All the brands represented align with our vision to create a unique experiential retail environment,” said Mark Toro, managing partner at NAP. “In addition to having sought-after national retailers, we’re introducing new retail and restaurant concepts to the market such as Soft Surroundings, Boston Proper, Lou & Grey and Oak Steakhouse.”

 

“We’ve curated a collection of specialty retailers and chef-driven restaurants that can’t be found anywhere else in the Southeast,” said Ron Pfohl, partner and director of leasing at NAP. “We have top names from Calypso St. Barth and Vineyard Vines to Flywheel and that’s just the beginning. More exceptional retailers like Anthropologie and BCBG are scheduled to open in the coming months.”

 

Avalon’s festive four-day grand opening will feature local chef demonstrations, fall fashion shows and live entertainment, including a special performance by country star Kellie Pickler. More details and information can be found here.
