Schmoozing: billy reid celebrates second atlanta store

by Stephen Garner

On Thursday, December 17, designer Billy Reid celebrated the opening of his 13th store location, located in The Buckhead Atlanta Shops at 3035 Peachtree Road Suite.

The new shop is Reid’s second location in the city of Atlanta. His flagship Atlanta store, at 1170 Howell Mill Rd NW, has seen tremendous success since its opening in 2012 thanks to its consistent high quality menswear, womenswear, footwear and accessories.

Provisions at the celebration were served by notable Chef Adam Evan of The Mercury and bartender, Julian Goglio. Evans was a nominee for Food & Wine magazine’s “Best New Chef” Award in 2015 and Goglio was named “Best Bartender” in Atlanta Eater Magazine in 2015.

“Atlanta has been such a wonderful market for us,” Reid told MR. “Our staff felt strongly about a second location in Buckhead and the statistics indicated that we had a significant customer base in the neighborhood. The opportunity to be part of the wonderful Buckhead Atlanta Shops is unique and it helps support our continued growth plans in Atlanta.”
