One Kings Lane, a retail design store with in-house consultants, has announced that it will be open year-round in the Southampton village location. Earlier this year, the retail store was only planning on being open at 11 Jobs Lane for the summer season until Labor Day weekend.
The store is currently located at the former Rogers Memorial Library—which is the first time that the building has been used for retail purposes. The iconic building was built in 1895 by R. H. Robertson, who was one of the most popular architects of the 19th century.
“Opening a Southampton store this past summer was ideal in terms of time and place,” president Debbie Propst told Curbed. “We saw it as a great way to stay top of mind with a really key audience for our brand, and test how we could engage with the people that we consider core customers. The hope was always to be able to stay longer than the season, and after the extremely strong response this summer, the transition to an extended the lease was a really natural next step for us.”
