It's official: Gratz Industries is relocating!

We're moving our main corporate offices to North Carolina, but we've got to sell our Decatur branch first. Here's a peek at our current facilities:

One of two main entrances:


Our employee parking lot, with convenient access to Atlanta's mass transit MARTA line:


Public space for sun and employee pumpkin carvings:


The second of our two main entrances:


Just inside Unit #5 - the main stairs and our genkan, where we store shoes:


Look left and you'll see the office of Jo Gratz, our junior partner:


Just a little further in and you'll find the office of Wendi Gratz, VP in charge of Crafting:


In the back, our employee dining area and the loading dock and patio beyond:

The employee break room:


And again, as seen from above:


Which leads directly to the employee lounge...


...where we have a company library for the edification of our associates.


As well as a high, open ceiling to inspire lofty thoughts:


Upstairs is the office of Alan Gratz, VP in charge of Writing:


And close by, bedroom facilities for when our employees work late and have to crash:

At every turn, we try to surround our associates with color and character:


And when fresh air is required, we have covered break areas too:


It's a casual, jovial work environment!

If your corporate family is looking to relocate, drop us a line!


We're sad to leave this beautiful oasis inside the Atlanta perimeter, but the mountains beckon. Now that the house is officially on the market, life around Gratz Industries can begin to return to normal, or at least what passes for normal around here . . .

So, what has prompted the move? A change in Wendi's region or literally a desire for the home range with views from the other side?

What a lovely home. Good luck. And WHERE DID YOU GET THE 'I SAW ESAU' PRINT??! Yes, I'm screaming that. Sendak is my hero.

The Esau print was acquired during Wendi's tenure as a book buyer for Joseph-Beth and Davis-Kidd. We got so much cool, free stuff from publishers back then! ::sigh::

As to the move, we're looking to simplify, to live more cheaply, to expand our corporate operations (to beat that metaphor to a final death), and we fell in love with the high country in Western NC. The location also makes a nice compound for the end times, which, as we all know, are coming. THE END TIMES ARE NIGH! Get right with the Flying Spaghetti Monster, or burn in the fiery pits of hell.

GPS coordinates will be provided to friends once we move, so you can find us after the apocalypse.
