Big chain retail locations are a permanent part of metro Atlanta's landscape, but some residents are saying enough is enough. What do you think?
Their names are instantly familiar, their logos immediately recognizable. Some of them represent the world's most famous brand names, while others are well on their way to prosperity and success.
