Historic downtown Newnan attracts thousands of visitors each year and many of those visitors enjoy a quality shopping experience. Local Provisions of downtown Newnan has relocated to a charming spot in what they refer to as “The culinary spot.” 

Local Provisions’ new location at 7 East Broad Street caters to their specialty food and wine market. The new location also has direct access to a new alleyway project which is currently under development. The alleway project will boast two new restaurant experiences along with already popular Knife and Stone. 

Store owners Laura and David Gabbard tell us, “Visitors always tell us, ‘I wished we had a store like this in our neighborhood.’” Since 2017 Local Provisions has been a neighborhood market that had originally opened on Jefferson Street.

Laura shared, “Truthfully our building at 8 Jefferson Street sold, so we had enough time given to find a place. We are so happy to be in this new space at 7 East Broad Street and excited to be part of this new culinary experience around the alleyway.” 

With the move, new products have arrived along with access to a kitchen which you will soon find Laura’s pimento cheese and Olive Confit. The wine offerings have expanded with the move, “We want to have different offerings than a grocery store; our selection of boutique wine is really what sets us apart,” Laura says. 

Her husband Dave keeps busy with merchandising and is working towards launching healthy lunch alternative grab-and-go meals. Local resident, Jordan says, “I love stopping in Local Provisions. They have all kinds of cool stuff, coffee, wine, cookies. Folks are from all around, and they love strolling in to check it out.” 

Both Laura and Dave say their customer service keeps bringing people back into the shop, “We love all of our customers and really appreciate their business. The City of Newnan has really embraced since our opening in 2017.”
