Ponce City Market welcomed William-Sonoma to the fully renovated Sears, Roebuck & Company building a few weeks ago, adding to the restoration of a vital landmark in Atlanta’s burgeoning Old Fourth Ward. I'm so excited about this! Here's why:

Not only is it the first William-Sonoma Home showroom in the south but it's also a comprehensive Design Center and offers an immersive culinary experience. Celebrity chef Jonathan Waxman has managed to introduce his latest restaurant and provides Junior Chef complimentary cooking classes at this William-Sonoma location on Sundays. The 9,000-square-foot retail space is reineventing the way think about going to the market.  

“This location represents a shared vision for a completely new retail experience that brings together the community to shop, cook, dine and be entertained," Williams-Sonoma President Janet Hayes said.
