AmericasMart, the 7.7-million-square-foot retail and gift complex in downtown Atlanta, has laid off just under 10 percent of its staff of about 250.

Developed by Atlanta architect John Portman in 1962, the giant mart competes with facilities nationwide to host shows for apparel makers, brokers and retailers of home accessories, garden gear and gifts.
