A new popcorn store is creating retail jobs in Atlanta.

Garrett Popcorn Shops is opening its first store in the Atlanta area.

The store will be at Lenox Square Mall.

For more than six decades, Garrett Popcorn has handcrafted small batch, gourmet popcorn.

The new location will now allow Atlantans to “pop while they shop” just in time for Black Friday and the holiday shopping season.

To celebrate Atlanta’s grand opening on Wednesday, Nov. 26, at 11:00am Garrett Popcorn is “rolling out the Copper Kettles” with:

Meet and Greet with Comedian, Actor and Talk Show Host, Steve Harvey
The First Customer in line will receive a Garrett Popcorn Shops “swag-filled” Blue Striped Signature Tin
Complimentary Bag Upgrade, from a Medium to a Large Bag of Garrett Mix®, from 11am to 1pm
A ribbon cutting ceremony
A Copper Kettle Christening

“Garrett Popcorn and the famous Garrett Mix have always been a must-buy for my family and me. My wife makes sure we keep a Tin in our home in Chicago!” said Harvey. “I can’t wait to celebrate this Chicago Tradition coming to the great state of Georgia with the people of Atlanta.”

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

Wireless giant AT&T is busy filling jobs and creating call center jobs in Atlanta.

AT&T has hired more than 1,300 new jobs – and filled a total of over 1,900 jobs in Georgia in 2014.

The company has hired more than 26,000 people (over 15,000 newly-created positions) across the U.S. during that same period.

AT&T currently has more than 300 openings available across the state. More than 280 of those openings are newly-created jobs in areas including call centers, retail support, technicians and corporate support.

Much of the hiring has been spurred by AT&T’s Project Velocity IP (VIP). Project VIP is an investment plan to expand and enhance IP broadband networks.

“As we’ve continued to invest in our network and expand our customer base in Georgia, we’ve also remained committed to providing excellent customer service,” said Beth Shiroishi, president of AT&T Georgia.

“From connected cars to a connected home, and from wearable technology to mobile Internet, these are exciting times for us. In turn, we’re looking for employees who can build on that excitement and provide the services our customers expect and deserve. We certainly thank Governor Deal and the members of the Georgia General Assembly who have worked to create a business-friendly environment where industries want to invest and create job opportunities for all Georgians.”
