Kaight Shutters Orchard Street Store
The street chatter we hard a couple weeks ago about Kaight moving across Orchard Street to the former James Coviello space was simply that. Talk. Yet despite the rumors, there was still a kernel of truth to the whole situation; the boutique was on the outs and needed a new home. So far it’s not looking great.
Kaight closed its doors for the last time a week ago. Their tenure at 83 Orchard Street lasted an uncharacteristic six years, but plans are already in the works to scout a new location. The mid-block store was cleared of its contents and already primed for the next in line. Posted to the door glass is the following letter to loyal patrons:
Dear Friends, Neighbors, and Customers,
Kaight opened on Orchard Street in 2006. I have loved being here and getting to know each and every one of you! I am hoping to reopen soon in another location in the neighborhood. In the meantime, Kaight will be operating solely out of its Brooklyn location. I hope you will come visit us there until I am able to find another permanent location in the neighborhood.
382 Atlantic Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11217
Thank you so much for a wonderful six years! I hope to see you in Brooklyn. Please visit our website for updates.
See you soon.
Much has changed on this block since the boutique first set up shop. New businesses, higher rents, more restaurants, and just a general upscaling.
