A Portland, OR-based retailer of home furnishings is opening its sixth location in Atlanta. Rejuvenation announced that it will bring a new home décor store to Ponce City Market on October 16th.
The new store, which marks the retailer’s first expansion into an East Coast market, will measure 4,000 square feet and showcase the brand’s product assortment with new and vintage items such as light fixtures, hardware, house parts, and furniture. A member of the Williams-Sonoma Inc. family of brands, Rejuvenation also offers in-home design consultations and sells its products by catalog at retail stores in Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, Berkeley, Palo Alto, and soon in Atlanta. The new store will donate one percent of the opening weekend’s sales to the Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta. The charitable organization recycles used furniture by collecting it from the community and giving it to individuals and families moving out of homeless shelters, fleeing domestic violence or battling HIV/AIDS.
Ponce City Market is a mixed-use development located on a 16-acre lot in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood on the east side of Atlanta. Nestled in the historic 2.1 million-square-foot Sears, Roebuck & Co. building, it is the area’s largest adaptive reuse project. Opened last August, it houses the Central Food Hall, various shops, flats, and offices.
