Owner Mims Bledsoe is currently searching for a new location.
Atlanta has lost a little slice of heaven.
Pie Shop has announced on Facebook that the gourmet bakeshop has shuttered its central Buckhead location.
For five years, the shop has served up over 100 flavors of pie on rotation in a peach-colored store unit hidden in the back of a shopping center at 3210 Roswell Road Northwest.
Owner Mims Bledsoe said in the statement that she is currently looking for a new location for Pie Shop, hopefully in the vicinity of the first store.
Read Bledsoe’s full statement below:
At the beginning of June, 2011 I was unsure what the response would be to a pie bakery opening in a hidden retail space in Buckhead’s West Village. I simply hoped there would be some people out there like me who were looking for good homemade pie. Five years later I can say that there are indeed many, many folks who appreciate a slice of summer fruit baked under a pastry lattice, or a stovetop custard garnished with fresh whipped cream.
We have had seasonal ups and downs. You have seen us when we’ve been busy or slow. You have stood in line for your Thanksgiving pie, or come in for a summer key lime treat. During this off-season, the beginning of our 6th year, we are going through some big changes.
The shop at 3210 Roswell Road is now closed. Over the next couple of months I will be looking for our new location, hopefully within a stone’s throw of our first home. I am very committed to staying in the neighborhood, as you all are the ones who have made it possible to do what we love: pie.
Over the past few months we have been trying to determine the future of our Buckhead location and many of you have been curious. Thank you for your questions, support and encouragement. As soon as I know our next stop, I will update you here and on the website, the-pie-shop.com. In the meantime, with any questions please email me at email@example.com.
It has been a wonderful, wild ride at “PS1.” As always, thank you for loving pie,
Nearby in the Buckhead Commons shopping center, Gainesville-based Southern Baked is working on its first Atlanta location.
