Children’s clothing store ‘The Beanstalk,’ which was closed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention after the pandemic, has reopened after a yearlong closure.
The store reopened Thursday in Atlanta’s East End neighborhood.
The owner, Mike Williams, said the decision was made after the CDC told him about the possibility of a new chain.
Williams said the chain has about 10,000 employees.
He said the company is selling children’s apparel, hats, jackets, scarves, hoodies, pants, socks and other items.
The CDC said the pandemics of 1918 and 1920 killed more than 16 million people and sickened more than 4.5 million.
Williams, who founded the company in 1974, said it has about 300 stores in the U.S. and Canada.
He did not have a release date for when the new chain will open.
