Gucci plans to swallow up vacated stores of both Hublot and Michael Kors as it expands its Buckhead Mall store in Atlanta.
Gucci earlier this week filed plans with the City of Atlanta to renovate its 5,515 square foot store in Buckhead. The expansion will see the brand take over both a Hublot store and Michael Kors that neighbor Gucci.
Hublot, a Swiss watch brand, and Michael Kors, an accessories and sportswear retailer, shut mid-week and over the weekend, respectively.
The renovation and expansion project will happen in three phases, costing nearly $1,150,000 in total.
First, the Hublot and Michael Kors spaces will be taken down for an estimated $45,561.
The second and third phases, expected to cost $1.1 million, will include the expansion of Gucci into the adjacent retailers, and the build out of the three combined spaces into one new store.
