Walmart Construction to Begin Early Next Year, Decatur Estate Moving to Lawrenceville Hwy

Selig has secured all permits to build the Walmart at Suburban Plaza according to the Medlock Area Neighborhood Association website, ad they are scheduled to begin construction early next year.

In related news, the long-time Suburban Plaza tenant, Decatur Estate and Wayback Antiques, reports they have found a new spot for their store at 2272 Lawrenceville Highway, which is the location of the old Jake’s Roadhouse, next to O’Reilly Auto Parts and across from Home Depot, according to MANA site.  They plan to reopen in the Spring of 2013.

  1. Nice to know the antiques store is staying open and in the neighborhood. Does anyone know what is being built on the site of the old Mrs. Winner’s next to Home Depot?

  2. Any word on Suburban Frames moving to Laredo Drive? Hancock Fabrics and That Pottery Place still staying?

    1. I love Last Chance too, and I’m rooting for them to land somewhere nearby. Fortunately, this particular branch has thrived in 3 locations (originally on 78 in Stone Mountain and displaced for Lowe’s), so its folks know they can do it again. And this time, they’ll do it knowing they have lots of devotees who’ll follow them! :0)

        1. Me too!!! So much so that I’ve about run out of room for treasures! (Not that it’ll stop me from junquing! :0)

  3. There are many other Last Chance stores around metro Atlanta. I do hope that this one relocates somewhere not too far away. Is everything in that shopping center going away?

  4. We very much appreciate the mention in the Decatur Metro – just to clarify a point about Decatur Estate & Wayback Antiques – we will continue to be open at Suburban Plaza until our new location is ready to go! I’ve got alot of renovations to do just to get a CO to open. I hope to be in the new location sometime in March. It’s been a wonderful 12 year run here :).
