James Avery announced plans to open a store in Marietta,
Ga., this July.
The store will be located in The Avenue West Cobb Shopping
Center, an open-air shopping destination in the Atlanta suburb.
The store will feature a selection of hand-crafted designs
in sterling silver and 14k gold, and in various sizes and gemstones. Faith-inspired
jewelry and charms will also be featured.
Atlanta is currently home to two James Avery stores at
Mansell Crossing in Alpharetta and The Forum on Peachtree Parkway in Norcross.
“Despite our long-term following at Mansell Crossing and
recent success at The Forum on Peachtree Parkway, we did not feel that we could
adequately serve our many northwest Atlanta customers without a presence there.
After many years of keeping an eye on the area, the time was finally right to
join The Avenue West Cobb and their line up of great talents,” Howell Ridout,
vice president of branding and development, said in a statement.
With the opening of the Marietta location, James Avery will
operate 61 stores across Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama,
Tennessee, and Arkansas.
