23,000 square feet of Nike gear, kicks and Atlanta memorabilia
What's up, good people?!
As you know, this site is not solely about beer. I have to make sure anything cool I come across should get some love to so that you will be informed. After all, if you are on this site, you must be a cool hunter as well, right? (Speaking of which, look out for my annual Gift Guide coming soon!)
Anyway, I recently had the chance to check out the new Nike store now open in front of Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta’s hip Buckhead area. It’s a 23,000-square-foot, two-level facility that is pretty damn slick. You are guaranteed to be inspired to stay in shape and do something sports-related after entering this state-of-the-art store with all of the new product Nike has for sale. I was blown away by its mix of Atlanta’s history (Martin Luther King Jr. memorabilia) with today’s most innovative technology (Nike Fuelband). This kind of creates a time machine effect. I took some shots during my visit for ya.
Definitely come check this store out.
Here is the official info:
