Kornel Romada, a leasing agent with The Woodmont Co., which owns King’s Crossing, said the lease was signed last week. Kirkland’s will occupy a space near Maurices in the shopping center. Romada anticipates the store will open in May.
Jeff Snyder, general manager of the Mall at Barnes Crossing, said he “hasn’t heard a word” about Kirkland’s moving, but said it wouldn't surprise him because Kirkland’s as a company is moving toward a strip center tenant with outside access.
If the store does move, Snyder said it will leave space for mall officials to market to other tenants.
