Do Your Holiday Shopping on the Avenue

Christmas LightsIt really feels like Christmas on Piedmont Avenue!

There is something about greeting neighbors on the street, and going in and out of small shops that gives you the feeling of holiday shopping as it should be.

Below is a list of some of the fantastic local merchants that are right in the neighborhood. Don’t forget to stop by Piedmont Grocery and say hello, pick up some treats or dinner from our hot food bar.

And also, the meters are free on Saturdays before Christmas—this makes parking so much easier.
