Fat City in Peachtree city

Does anyone know why its closed? I have something exspensive left there for repair. Their phone recording says they hope to re-open soon and tell you to email them or leave a message. Their email comes back as incorrect address and no one has returned by phone calls. I hope they haven't gone out of business. I'm beginny to worry.

Are they still running Fat City Paintball in Senoia (550-599-1485)? I guess they were just renting that property down there.

Valentino's was rumored to open up in Newnan at the Home Depot center.

Doesn't anyone care about this news story?

I called the 770 559 1485 and they are closed there too. Same thing, they say they hope to re-open soon. Why is everyone talking about Valentino's do they same people own both?

I think they went the way of Valentino's. Closed their doors without giving the publuc fair warning.

I'm stuck with over $100 in gift certificates for Valentino's and my family gave them as Christmas presents so they are stiffed also.

Why would they sell them at Christmas time and then close their doors after the first of the year?

Someone had mentioned they were going to Johnny Carinno's in Newnan but that building is still for lease.

This doesn't answer your question - just venting about business's that know they are closing their doors and don't let the unsuspecting public know.

Got one of their gift cards in a stocking at Christmas and got a nasty surprise two weeks ago when I went to redeem it - they are gone.

As for Valentino's, I heard about the Johnny Carino's thing and it sounded like a done deal. The owners don't see to be the types to stiff people, so I'm sure when their new doors open, the gift certificates will still be good.

Of course they have been going with that pirate motif for awhile.....

Cash is MUCH better than a gift certificate. I've never understood why so many people are eager to hand over hard earned US Currency in return for an IOU from somewhere. The stores love it, as many are never redeemed.

As far as Valentino's selling them this past Christmas, that seems underhanded for sure, but hey, an IOU is only as good as the party that owes the money.

We do agree on something. People seem to have an aversion about giving cash---I can't explain it.

I was always taught to put some thought into a gift, and that cash was a little too impersonal. I don't think it's necessarily true, depending on how you give it - I give my kids cash for their birthdays, but inside a new wallet or purse or something, and we have fun going out shopping.

I give gift certificates as a way to give an experience to someone. Cash might just get spent on bills or something, but if you give a certificate to a restaurant you're giving a night out to eat. I like getting them, it makes me try out different places I might not have gone otherwise. Anyway, that's why some people give gift certificates instead of cash.
