Atlantic Station’s Z Gallerie and the Starbucks inside the center’s Twelve Hotel are closing.

Z Gallerie is liquidating its merchandise ahead of shutting its doors for good.

Everything in the home furnishings store is 30 percent off including already marked-down sales items.

Candles and candle holders are 40 percent off.

Z Gallerie will be open “until all of the merchandise is depleted,” a manager told What Now Atlanta (WNA) over the phone Thursday.

“Since the original development of Atlantic Station, we have enjoyed a fruitful partnership with Z Gallerie. Unfortunately, as a result of Z Gallerie’s bankruptcy proceeding, the acquiring company—DirectBuy Home Improvement—has decided to close the Atlantic Station location,” Nick Garzia, director of retail leasing at Hines, told WNA in a prepared statement.

“While we wish the new owner the best of luck, the team at Atlantic Station is focused on its half-billion-dollar transformation currently underway with three new hotels, two new office buildings, a renovated Atlantic Green with new jewel-box retailers and multifamily offerings.” 

Starbucks in the Twelve Hotel will be open until Sunday, June 30.

The coffee shop “is operated by the hotel” and carries the “responsibility to backfill it,” Garzia said.

It’s unclear why the coffee shop is closing its doors but it doesn’t seem like the space will sit dark for long.

There is interest from prospective tenants to take Starbucks’ place, but a lease has not yet been secured, a representative for the Twelve Hotel told WNA.

Two coffee shops remain in the mixed-use.

Target has a Starbucks and Land of A Thousand Hills is situated across from Regal Cinemas.
