Aveda Institute will open at Brookwood Place replacing Borders Books and Music, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

    Sounds good to me. The Aveda Institute on Piedmont was too small.

    Excellent. That part of Buckhead is much more navigable for me. Now we’ll just have to find a tenant for that old Peasant space. :)
