You may remember… Haag Brown Commercial asked at the beginning of the year through a Facebook post how badly “you” wanted a Kirkland’s in town. The response was TREMENDOUS! Because hundreds “liked”, “shared”, and “commented”, we couldn’t help but look into this obvious large demand. After you, the local community, gained the attention of Haag Brown Commercial CCIM brokers and principal leaders through social media, our company started looking into this possibility of bringing the well-known specialty retailer to town.
After a few phone calls and meetings here and there, the nationally recognized distinctive merchandiser was officially in the process to come to Jonesboro! Haag Brown sent the first news release out in April, a few months later. Click here to view the original press release and photos. After that, Kirkland’s was history.
Saturday, November 10, 2012, Kirkland’s Home Décor in Jonesboro, Ark. opened their doors for the official grand opening weekend events. Located at 3101 E. Highland Drive directly across from Target in The Mall at Turtle Creek, this 9,000 square foot specialty retailer hosted multiple in store sales and local interior designer, MG Meyering, who provided free design tips and consultations for customers from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
