Halpern Enterprises, Inc. this week announced it has signed a lease with DD’s Discounts — stylized as “dd’s DISCOUNTS” — to occupy 17,656 square feet in Pinetree Plaza, a 206,496-square-foot shopping center, at 5289 Buford Highway in Doraville. Part of the Ross Stores, Inc. family of brands with more than 270 locations in 20 states, DD’s offers discounted apparel, accessories, footwear, and home fashions.
“We have enjoyed a positive, successful relationship with Ross over the years, and we’re thrilled the company chose Pinetree Plaza for this dd’s store,” Benjamin Halpern, Halpern’s regional leasing director, said in a prepared statement. “We look forward to continuing to serve the community’s needs as we bring more retail and restaurant options to the center.”
DD’s will open its new Doraville storefront in fall 2021 “at the earliest,” a Halpern spokesperson Friday told What Now Atlanta. It will be the sixth outpost for the chain in Georgia, all of which are ITP with the exception of a Marietta outpost.
Halpern Enterprises has owned, leased, and managed Pinetree Plaza for more than 60 years. It is home to Supermercado Chicago, LanZhou Ramen, Bo Bo Garden Asian Cuisine, Dim Sum Heaven, Mango Mango, and I-CE-NY. Pinetree Plaza is also home to Mundo Hispánico, Atlanta’s largest Spanish-language newspaper, which moved into Halpern’s former office headquarters in 2018.
