Wuxtry Named Top 25 Record Store in Country by Rolling Stone

Wow.  A big shout out for just-north-of-Decatur’s (JNOD!) Wuxtry Records!  From Rolling Stone’s “The Best Record Stores in the USA: The top 25 spots for unique vinyl and CDs, from San Francisco to Boston”

Wuxtry Records

Decatur, GA – Athens, GA

Famous as much for its former employees — Peter Buck of R.E.M. and Danger Mouse have both manned the counters of the Athens shop — Wuxtry is a Georgia stalwart that continues to win new fans that don’t even care about its history. (Well, maybe a little.) Nevertheless, the store’s deep commitment to rock new and old — listening to and debating it alike — has sparked a deep bond with the place shared by regulars and visitors alike. As a bonus, the Athens location features a terrific comics shop upstairs.

Red Mango Frozen Yogurt Opening on North Decatur Road

Tomorrow’s News Today reports that Red Mango Frozen Yogurt is opening in the North Decatur @ Clairmont Road strip mall with Eagle Eye Bookstore and Willy’s.  Opening is projected for two months from now.

TNT’s summary of the area’s frozen yogurt price wars is particularly interesting…

In terms of weight, the local standard had been 39 cents per ounce but that has varied somewhat of late. Months ago, with no competition in the immediate area, Sprout’s saw an opportunity and priced their product at 56 cents per ounce. With Yogli Mogli now a stone’s throw away, they knocked their price down to match Yogli Mogli at 39 cents. In Decatur, The Yogurt Tap opened at and has remained at 39 cents, but Menchie’s over at Toco Hills is charging 44 cents per ounce. Red Mango Dunwoody is charging 45 cents, which figures to be the price for the new North Decatur location as well.
