ATLANTA — AMERICASMART IS IN GROWTH MODE, WITH A MAJOR new gift mart expansion that will also allow for growth in key areas of apparel.
Construction is under way on a 1.5 million-square-foot addition to the gift mart, referred to as the West Wing. Set for completion in 2008, the first market for the new space is January 2009. When completed, the new wing will contribute to a total 7.7 million square feet of space at AmericasMart — what officials call the world's single largest collection of product.
