In its heyday the Peachtree Parkway Plaza on the corner of Spalding Drive and S.R. 141 was brimming with shoppers and diners. Today only a handful of businesses remain.
A Winn Dixie and a large drug store were the anchors along with several restaurants including Los Arcos that brought in the majority of the business. A boutique tennis shop once served the many tennis players in the city. But those businesses have closed and moved on to more thriving locations.
Los Arcos was the last to leave, its owners choosing to relocate in a smaller shopping center nearby.
Today the retail center is a rather forlorn reminder of better times. Its large parking lot is nearly empty except for a cluster of cars in front of the Goodwill and Dollar General. An Arbys, a Blimpie's and Wendy's fast food stores also still operate in the shopping center
We attempted to reach the leasing company, DLC, to ask about potential tenants or other plans for the shopping center. But our calls to the leasing agent, Danna Rogers, were not returned.
What would you like to see in the shopping center?
Would you like to see more shops, restaurants, maybe a chain such as Bed, Bath & Beyond to replace the Linen and Things that closed at The Forum? Or perhaps a Steinmart or another grocery store?
Or are you in favor of razing the shopping center and developing the property into something other than retail space?
