Please remember your neighborhood businesses the next time you want to shop, eat out, or take out.
The 2020 pandemic has been especially hard for Emory Village business which have been struggling these past few months to stay solvent. Four businesses — Lucky’s, Tide Cleaners, Rise n Dine. and Romeo’s — have left the village in the past year. Two new businesses have opened in recent months: Joe May Cleaners and Cloud 9.
State pandemic guidelines have allowed many restaurants and other businesses to reopen their doors or expand their offerings. In turn, businesses owners say they are working hard to keep their guests and employees safe and healthy.

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.
A Socially Distant Neighborhood Event Supporting Emory Village
The 8th Annual Open Streets Emory Village continued in 2020 with a socially responsible edition in line with the challenges of the times. Events were spaced out over a four-day period, some virtual, so friends and neighbors could enjoy the fun without the crowds. There was still good food, music, and activities, but individuals and families were encouraged to explore the village environs safely and at their own speed.
