According to the last published reports, office supply megastore Staples was bullying its way into Bridgehampton Commons by displacing Ann Taylor, the Retreat Boutique and a defiant GapKids, whose employees countered that they weren't going anywhere. While Ann Taylor laid down like the sensible lady she is, a recent visit to the center revealed both the Retreat Boutique and GapKids going about business as usual. Add a "For Lease" sign spotted in the former Ann Taylor space and we're starting to wonder: If a Staples arrival is imminent, why would Kimco Realty advertise the space as available? Not exactly a smoking gun, but could we be witnessing a Staples removal? Pure speculation on our part of course, but something to ponder in the crisp winter air. We'll be on the lookout for any changes. Meanwhile, drop us a line if you know something we don't.
