A Virginia-Highland mainstay closed its doors over the weekend.
Owner Steven Welch confirmed the closure via email, pointing out the changing intown environment.
“After enjoying 19 years of success in what was until recently Atlanta's preferred walking neighborhood the changing complexion of the intown retail environment made for challenging business conditions no longer sustainable. Hand in Hand is grateful to its many loyal customers and the Atlanta community at large for their long patronage.”
Welch said there are no plans to relocate or reopen in the future.
