Kirkland Opens

More home décor at Maple Village

by Sally Mitani

From the November, 2017 issue

Kirkland's opened in Maple Village, adding still another shade of home decor to the various shades already available at HomeGoods, Stein Mart, and Five Below. With the apostrophe-s distinguishing it from the unrelated Costco house brand Kirkland, the Tennessee-based chain was named after founder Carl Kirkland and has been around since 1966. What does Kirkland's bring to Maple Village? It seems to be a cross between Pier 1 and Big Lots--dishes, cushions, oversized candles, and some furniture. A lot of it is laden with large-font verbiage exhorting you to eat ("EAT"), pray ("Pray Often"), and love ("Love Always Trusts")--as well as "Choose Happiness," "Laugh More," "Start each day with a grateful heart," and--on a more mundane note--to just "Pass the gravy." On its opening day in late September it was already all over Christmas too, with signage about decking halls, being jolly, ringing bells, and letting it snow.

Kirkland's, 341 N. Maple (Maple Village), 997-0886. Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m.-9 p.m., Sun. 1-6 p.m.    (end of article)
