West Elm To Replace Tootsie’s in the Shops Around Lenox

Tootsie's is moving down the street.

West Elm is expanding to Buckhead.

The home furnishings store Tuesday filed plans with the City of Atlanta to build out space in the Shops Around Lenox for its fifth Georgia store, third in Atlanta.

West Elm has stores in Old Fourth Ward’s Ponce City Market and Atlantic Station.

A Shops Around Lenox representative confirmed the news in an email to What Now Atlanta Tuesday but forwarded the request to “corporate” for comment.

West Elm will open in suite 219 in space currently occupied by Tootsie’s. An estimated $750,000 will be spent constructing the new 12,056-square-foot retail store.

As for Tootsie’s, the woman’s boutique isn’t closing up shop for good. The retailer is relocating to The Exchange in Buckhead.
