Five new stores are debuting this week in Alpharetta City Center.
Magnolia Moon, Mountain High Outfitters, Perched, The Red Hound, and Spirited have all either opened or plan to be open by Black Friday.
These five stores join twelve restaurants and retailers that are already open in the Alpharetta mixed-use project: The Ballog, Hemline, The Pink Valise, Southern Local, Anna Bella Fine Lingerie, Chiringa, Citizen Soul, Kilwins Chocolate Shop, Natural Body Spa, Restaurant Holmes, Skin ReMEDI, and Vitality Bowls Superfood Café.
Magnolia Moon, at 245 Market Street, is a relo from Colorado, founded by Cameron Moon.
It specializes in modern classics, cozy basics, on-trend styles, and unique accessories for women, all at affordable prices.
“The majority of our accessories and home/gift items are made by small woman-owned businesses or are made by Fair Trade Federation member brands that employ female artisans around the globe,” Moon said in a press release Monday.
“Coming from a unique downtown in Fort Collins that really valued community collaboration and small business, it was really important for me to find another downtown with similar qualities and values.”
Mountain High Outfitters, at 405 S. Broad St, plans to open by Black Friday on November 23.
The outdoor retailer sells an array of products for a variety of activities from backpacking and camping, to caving, biking, yoga, skiing, paddle boarding, and fly fishing.
Perched, a family-owned boutique that began in Ball Ground, Georgia, is now open at 215 Market St.
Owned by Amanda Topper, the store carries “classy, feminine clothing and unique gifts,” including decorative seasonal accessories. It also carries baby shower, wedding and birthday gifts as well as some clothing for girls.
The Red Hound is now open at 211 Market St., having relocated from its original location in John’s Creek.
The store is known for its selection of gifts for every occasion from babies, kids, and teachers, to graduates, brides, and hostesses.
“We partner with some wonderful local and regional artists as well as national brands to bring one of a kind pieces,” Vanessa Schepis, The Red Hound’s owner, said in the release.
“We are always receiving new products so customers return frequently to browse our incredible selection of gifts, home décor, and accessories.”
The owners of Spirited Boutique, now open at 305 Market St., describe their store as “a boutique that strives to create an artistic vibe and great experience while providing top quality, fashionable clothing and accessories.”
With several locations around Metro Atlanta, the store is known for carrying “boho-chic” fashion and handmade jewelry from local artists, including jewelry maker Spirit Lala, who owns the shop with her husband, Edmond Bush.
