Kerrytown's New Kitchen Store

 

continued

They've reopened a long-closed central stairway so customers can move between floors without having to leave the store. "That's kind of important to us so that it doesn't feel like two completely different stores," says Tom.

It's heady growth for a business that started out in 1991 selling handcrafted boxes and desk accessories in a 200-square-foot corner of Kerrytown's second floor. With the latest expansion, the Hollanders have 14,000 square feet spread over three floors.

Cindy still seems a little poleaxed by the leap they've taken, but says, "We've kind of always grown our business like that. We're kind of organic. If we see an opening, we go for it. We like to keep moving forward. We're not going to do something crazy. This is probably about as crazy as we want to be."

Hollander's Kitchen & Home, 415 North Fifth Avenue (Kerrytown Market & Shops, second floor). 226-1885. Mon.-Fri. 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Sat. 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. www. hollanders.com.    (end of article)
