Black Bear Antiques and Interiors opening in Blue Ridge, Georgia

There will be magic in the mountains of north Georgia the week of July 1st when Black Bear Antiques and Interiors officially opens its doors to the public. The 21,000-square-foot antique mall is located at 4177 East 1st Street in Blue Ridge. Just look for the 14-foot-tall, 500-pound bronze bear standing outside. He’s inviting folks to come on in and browse.

Black Bear Antiques is not a new business. It was a prime destination in nearby Ellijay for tourists and shoppers seeking quality antiques and collectibles for 15 years, but when the opportunity arose to snap up the anchor tenant spot in a perfectly located strip center in Blue Ridge, The Ahlers Group (the Atlanta-based firm that owns Black Bear Antiques) pounced.

The address is 4177 East 1st Street in Blue Ridge, right off GA-515. It’s a two-minute drive from downtown Blue Ridge and just a block off of Main Street. Look for the big bronze bear outside!

Black Bear Antiques is a member of the Blue Ridge Chamber. The two will partner for a planned “grand opening” and ribbon-cutting ceremony the week of July 15th. A soft opening is planned for the week of June 24th.

When it’s officially open, Black Bear Antiques’ hours of operation will be Monday-Saturday from 10am to 6pm; and Sunday from 12 o’clock noon to 5pm, all times Eastern.

In addition to Black Bear Antiques, The Ahlers Group also owns and operates Peachtree Battle Antiques & Interiors, Peachtree Battle Estate Sales, and Ahlers & Ogletree Auction Gallery, all in Atlanta.
