BUCKHEAD, GA-Just in time for the “busiest shopping day of the year” imported food and housewares retailer Cost Plus World Market has its grand opening for its fourth Atlanta-area outlet. Shoppers at the new Piedmont Road store will be able to peruse 18,000 sf of items from over 50 countries. The company’s third store in the region opened in Fayette Pavilion earlier this year, and the other two locations are in the Northside area.

The Buckhead location is slightly larger than the typical World Market stores, which usually have 16,000 sf of retail space. But this outlet is expected to perform similarly to other new stores in the first year by yielding approximately $3 million in sales and a more than 40% cash return on investment.

In a statement, company chairman, president and CEO Murray Dashe spoke of the retail chain’s success and appeal. “(We) travel the world visiting remote villages, centuries old factories and covered bazaars searching for unusual and unique products to bring home to our customers,” he explained.
