Okay, so I have heard some rumors about Dolce & Gabbana, Chloé, Harry Winston, Jil Sander, RUEHL, Dior, Vera Wang, Chanel, and Prada are planning to build stores in Atanta. Have you heard these rumors??

Discount stores like those will do well in a recession.

I haven't but they are prob. going to be more new Streets of Buckhead announcements..sounds like the kind of retail that will be apart of that project. They have room for about 60 or so more Boutiques and shops.

Quite a few high-end stores have been announced as going into the new Streets of Buckhead development. I don't know whether all the ones you've mentioned are included. You can check details on the web site:

Buckhead: The New Name in Luxury

Of course, several of the big components of the development have been changing lately because of the economy so it's possible some of these high-end boutiques could postpone joining the mix during the downturn too.

I saw that it was already opened. It is located on the same level as California Pizza.

Actually, I read somewhere that high-end/luxury stores weather recessions fairly well. The truly rich aren't really affected by anything. During a recession, they will vacation in Acapulco instead of Rio.

This is not necessary true. I worked for one of the above mentioned luxury retail boutiques and this recession is really affecting our bottom line. Even the so-called rich customers aren't spending money as they used to.

Ok, semantic-boy (or girl)...of course its not true for all situations...come on. We're talking about overall trends/tendencies (at the "macro" level)...nothing is ever 100% for all situations.

We're talking about weathering recessions fairly well...
