Klig’s Kites will close its store at Barefoot Landing next week and will move into a free-standing store on Kings Highway in February, said owner Rick Kligman.
The store has been a long-time fixture at Barefoot, but Kligman said that Barefoot owner Burroughs & Chapin did not renew its lease at its current location.
Kligman said that B&C offered Klig’s another location in Barefoot, but that he decided to move elsewhere.
“Since Burroughs & Chapin Company, Inc. purchased Barefoot Landing in 2013, we have been exploring ways to improve the visitor experience of this iconic property,’ company spokeswoman Lei Gainer said in an emailed statement. “We continue to explore those possibilities and plan for the future.”.
Klig’s Kites will still keep its location at Broadway at the Beach, Kligman said.
