ATLANTA (WXIA) -- Caryn Liss was excited when her store, Modern Tribe, moved to the corner of Piedmont and Auburn avenues.
“We made a point to have a whole line of things made in Atlanta,” Liss said. “We were part of the ‘Pop-up Shop’ program, in conjunction with the streetcar of Atlanta.”
That program gave grants to more than a dozen businesses -- including three of them opening in one building at the same streetcar stop. Eighteen months later, those three are moving out.
“What percentage of your customers came off of the Streetcar?” asked 11Alive’s Matt Pearl.
