Final Cut’s new home
Update: The new Final Cut is expected to open April 18, 2015.
Good news for Anthropologie ultra-deal lovers! Anthro’s Clearance Outlet Final Cut, which closed a couple of months ago in its old location, has found a new place to land. (You can read more about what Final Cut is and what to expect in this post.)
The new Final Cut store will be in the same town — Augusta, GA — as the former location. The space is leased from Goodwill Industries of Middle Georgia and may be open as soon as the first week of April, though no official opening date has been announced.
For those interested, here’s information about the stores Final Cut will share its new shopping center home with provided by Goodwill Industries of Middle Georgia and the CSRA:
“Final Cut is leasing space from Goodwill Industries of Middle Georgia and the CSRA, on our Helms College Augusta Campus at 3145 Washington Road [in Augusta, GA]. The center, at the intersection of Fury’s Ferry Road, is about a mile from Interstate 20 and about four miles east of the store’s former location.
The center is a significant upgrade. Final Cut will be located in a portion of our property – previously Village West Shopping Center – that was used by upscale furniture retailer Weinberger’s Furniture. The facility, renovated and reopened in 2011, is occupied (from left to right, as you face it) by a Goodwill donation center and retail training store; a Hire Grounds Café and bookstore (a great place for books and coffee!); a Goodwill Job Connection; the Snelling Center, a meeting and event venue; Edgar’s Grille (www.edgarsgrille.com
), a beautiful high-casual restaurant; Helms College, a culinary school operated by Goodwill; Social Inc., a private facility that teaches dance and social skills to teens and is the only other leased property on our site; the Helms College administrative offices; Helms Career Institute, a health sciences school opening in July; and then the space for Final Cut.
Helms College (www.helms.edu
) was created by our Goodwill (www.goodwillworks.org
) in 2007 in Macon and expanded in 2012 to Augusta. It provides diploma and associate degree culinary education for about half the cost of other nationally accredited culinary schools, and currently is enrolling students for spring quarter starting April 13. Edgar’s Grille and the Snelling Center, in addition to offering superior dining, event and catering services to the community, also provide experiential learning opportunities for Helms College students, who rotate through the facilities as part of their practical, hands-on education.
Goodwill Industries of Middle Georgia and the CSRA spans a 35-county service area, from Aiken, S.C. to south of Macon, Ga., and includes Dublin, Lake Oconee and Warner Robins. We provide job training, education and career development services, and last year served more than 24,000 individuals and helped more than 4,600 with new job placements.”
My mouth is watering thinking about culinary school — I’ve taken classes at the French Culinary Institute and loooovvveeddd them. So this new Final Cut store has some pretty sweet company it seems!
Georgia Anthro fans, will you make the trip to this new Final Cut location once it’s open? How about the rest of our community? Anyone down for a road trip? I’d like to find some Anthropologie jewels and oldies there.
