City Extends Deadline for Businesses to Renew Business Licenses

Published

on

60-day deferral business license

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus began, the City has endeavored to find the best balance between providing service at City Hall to its residents and the business community. After considering the continued spread of the coronavirus in the metro area, the decision was recently made to close City Hall to the public. 

Until further notice, Peachtree Corners City Hall will not be open during regular business hours. However, you may request in-person meetings by appointment. The staff is also available by telephone and email during regular City Hall hours (9 a.m. – 4 p.m.)

The staff telephone numbers and email addresses are located on the city’s website, www.peachtreecornersga.gov. Use the “Contact Us” link at the top of the homepage to access contact information. Use the filter to access by department.

Understanding that this may cause a hardship on many companies’ ability to renew their business license, the Mayor and Council are extending the deadline for renewals until May 31, 2020. 

During this time, the City strongly encourages businesses to renew their licenses online at: https://cityofpeachtreecornersga.governmentwindow.com/start.html or by mail. 

The City is temporarily waiving the $5.00 eCheck fee and reducing the processing fee from 5% to 2.5% when using a credit card.  If you have questions regarding renewals, please send an email to businesslicenses@peachtreecornersga.gov or call 678-691-1208 to speak with the City’s business license officer.

Along with many other new great shops and stores, Buff City Soap, located in Peachtree Corners Town Center is definitely worth checking out with friends and family. The company was started back in 2013 after founder Brad Kellum realized that the ingredients found in many body care products on the market were harmful and irritating to the skin. So, he set out on a mission to create high-quality, handcrafted, great smelling products for people to enjoy.

Buff City Soap Opens Second Georgia Store in Peachtree Corners

Published

on

Peachtree Corners is getting its own Soap Makery. Buff City Soap — the brand known for its fresh, handcrafted soaps made daily in-store by local Makers — opened its second Georgia store, just weeks after opening its first. The new store opened in Peachtree Corners on May 2.

Each Buff City Soap store offers more than 25 unique and customizable scents across dozens of handcrafted soap products, including its famous soap bars, bath bombs, foaming hand soap and even laundry soap.

The new shop is owned and operated by husband-and-wife duo Matt and Leslie Taylor.
Previously, Matt served with the Memphis Fire Department for nine years. During his time at the Fire Department Academy, he met Brad Kellum, the co-founder of Buff City Soap.

Once Brad started Buff City Soap, Matt began using the products and fell in love with them. Matt currently serves as a Lieutenant at the Atoka Fire Department just outside Memphis. No stranger to serving the public herself, Leslie has spent the last 13 years as a pediatric nurse at a local hospital.

“After watching Buff City Soap grow from the ground up and being faithful customers for the last seven years, we knew it was time to get involved with the brand,” said Leslie. “We cannot wait to help grow Buff City Soap’s presence in Georgia, and we are confident that the Peachtree Corners community will absolutely love our array of assorted handcrafted products.”

Buff City Soap recently created a new soap called “Birthday Song,” which gets its name from the Centers for Disease Control’s recommendation of singing the “Happy Birthday Song” to yourself twice while washing your hands with warm water to safely clean your hands. For each bar of Birthday Song Soap that is sold, Buff City Soap is donating $1 to local and national COVID-19 relief efforts.

Due to the pandemic, the store is ensuring that it has products available for the community, so the new location is offering curbside pickup and online ordering, with transition to the in-store experience as it is deemed safe in order to maintain the health and welfare of the staff and customers.

Buff City Soap is located at 5215 Town Center Blvd, Suite 670 in Peachtree Corners; 678-381-9964; buffcitysoap.com. ■
