Several new businesses have opened their doors recently in Emory Village, and work is ongoing to make way for a market on the prime corner of North Decatur Road and Oxford roads.
The opening date hasn’t been announced yet for Savi Provisions, but workers are now converting the historic building that housed Everybody’s Pizza for more than 40 years and later Slice & Pint. The gourmet market’s decision to locate a new store in Emory Village is especially welcome by neighbors who in recent surveys have put a grocery store at the top of their wish list for Emory Village.
Savi will join other newcomers on Oxford Road, including fast food purveyor Buffalo Wild Wings which has opened across from the Emory Campus between Chipotle and Chase Bank. On North Oxford, Joe May Cleaners, and Cloud 9 have set up shop.
Bring your helmet to the first annual Emory Village Open Streets’ family friendly Ride Druid Hills. Cyclists will experience the beauty and learn about the history of Druid Hills as they ride the 7-mile route comprised mostly of dedicated paths and quiet residential streets, beginning and ending at the former Slice and Pint parking lot. See the route map.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged as space is limited. Note that masks are not required for the ride, but they are necessary during the history-sharing stops along the route.
Register at Eventbrite by start of the event. Donations welcome.
(Extra bonus: Sign up for this and most other official Open Streets events to be entered automatically in the Peavine Creek Duck race!)
Neighbors, families and friends cheered and clapped for neighborhood 2020 graduates as they paraded through Druid Hills in their cars last Sunday, May 31, ending in front of banners in Emory Village. Justin Critz, former Druid Hills Civic Association president and proud father, organized the parade, with support from Druid Hills Civic Association, Emory Village Alliance – EVA, South Fork Conservancy, and Druid Hills Patrol.
While COVID-19 prevented our graduates from having ceremonies at their individual schools, your friends and neighbors are proud to acknowledge your well-earned accomplishments! Please tell us what school or university you graduated from, your field of study, and anything else you would like to share with us on our Facebook page. Feel free to post photos!
