In addition to our normal news coverage, What Now Atlanta is tracking ways Atlanta’s businesses are adapting to the novel coronavirus and the challenges it brings to brick-and-mortars.
Amelie’s French Bakery is the latest restaurant to succumb to the financial hardships brought on by the novel coronavirus.
The quaint restaurant, at 840 Marietta St. NW, permanently closed its doors earlier this week, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution Thursday first reported.
Amelie’s announced the news on its website.
“Unfortunately we have had to permanently close our Atlanta location,” according to the message on the restaurant’s homepage.
“Like many other restaurants, we have felt and are continuing to feel the devastation of COVID-19 and made the incredibly hard decision to close our doors in Atlanta. Thank you to the community of Atlanta for welcoming us and allowing us to serve you for seven years.”
Reps for Amelie’s on Thursday did not immediately respond to What Now Atlanta’s request for comment.
The South Carolina-based chain has five remaining locations, four of which are in Charlotte.
