The Midtown Mile has lost another clothing boutique with the weekend closing of the locally-owned DrewLewis.
SO AFTER FIVE LONG YEARS WITH DREWLEWIS IN ATLANTA, WE HAVE DECIDED TO CLOSE! WE HAVE HAD THE BEST TIME EVER AND WILL LEAVE WITH A LOT OF AMAZING NEW FRIENDS AND MEMORIES! WE ARE ON TO BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS, BUT FIRST... THIS WILL BE DREWLEWIS' LAST WEEKEND IN BUSINESS SO COME ON OVER AND SUPPORT US BY BUYING SOMETHING FOR 75% OFF!!! WE ARE SELLING TABLES, ART, ACCESSORIES, FIXTURES, and of course CLOTHES!!!
A peek inside the space early Tuesday evening revealed that much of the merchandise, most of it tailored for very skinny people, had already been removed.
In 2010, DrewLewis relocated from its original MidCity Lofts space to replace Universal Gear at Metropolis. Now the vast space is open again.
So what would be a good compliment to the other Metropolis retailers, some of which include Aurum Lounge, Taco Mac, The UPS Store, Jimmy Johns, Mind and Body Day Spa, James Madison Salon, and Metro Cleaners.
Work has already begun on a modern-Italian restaurant, La Tagliatella, that will occupy the former Silk restaurant at the corner of Peachtree and 8th streets. It is slated for a late 2012 opening
Maybe this is the perfect time for the return of the legendary Stein Club, which formally occupied the location at 929 Peachtree before Metropolis was built about a decade ago. What do you think? What kind of business would you like to see replace DrewLewis?
