New Businesses in Emory Village

Several new businesses have opened their doors recently in Emory Village, and an upscale market is expected on the prime corner of North Decatur and Oxford roads.

The opening date hasn’t been announced yet for Savi Provisions, but workers will soon convert 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.

Spring Cleaning in the Village

A beautiful day in May welcomed eager hands and new and long-time neighbors who converged upon the Village to spruce up public spaces.

Volunteers yanked weeds, pruned, edged and dug as part of a service day sponsored by the Druid Hill Civic Association in partnership with the Emory Village Alliance.

“The results,” said Todd Hill, EVA chair, “were fantastic! We have the best looking roundabout and streetscape in Druid Hills and beyond.”

Open Streets Covid19 Edition Attracted All Ages and Interests

The Eighth Annual Open Streets Emory Village inserted some fun into 2020 with a “Covid19” edition that included a mix of virtual and socially distanced events. For four days in October, neighbors enjoyed specials at Village restaurants and tried out events that ranged from bike tours, to architectural and creek walks, sidewalk chalk art and pottery art, concerts, virtual 5K and dog contests, gymnastics, a duck race and much more.
