The Spotted Trotter, a neighborhood boutique charcuterie, could move its Edgewood operation, at 1610 Hosea L Williams Dr. NE, down the street to 229 Moreland Avenue SE.
Plans late-last-week were submitted to the City of Atlanta to convert space formerly occupied by Tippens Appliances and Furniture into The Spotted Trotter.
An estimated $650,000 would be spent converting the 6,430-square-foot retail space into The Spotted Trotter.
Employees of the butcher shop have been telling customers they’re relocating, according to a thread on EAV Buzz.
That seems likely given Tippens is situated about 1.3 miles away from the butcher shop’s existing location.
“Was told by a worker at [The] Spotted Trotter on Hosea Williams yesterday that they are moving from that location to the Tippens Appliance building at Moreland and Memorial between the Exxon station and City Wide Package (the old Tower package store),” forum user Georgian posted late-2017.
Kevin Ouzts, co-owner of the butcher shop, in an email to What Now Atlanta over the weekend confirmed a permit was filed to convert the former furniture and appliance shop but did not comment on the relocation rumor.
It’s unlikely Ouzts and his wife Megan would operate two nearby locations.
The couple and co-owners at the end of 2016 shuttered their Krog Street Market outpost citing “the need for only one brick and mortar location to complement their wholesale business.”
