The Kitchen Table, a Hattiesburg, MS-based gourmet kitchenwares store, was recently featured in a Hattiesburg America article about retail sales growth in the local market.
In the article, store owner Jennifer McKay explained that she and her husband have been monitoring the store’s product selection and have made adjustments as new demand is being seen in the market.
“Tabletop has really boomed,” she said. “We’ve taken on an entire space next to us — it’s all tabletop.”
Some of the tabletop lines the store offers include Vietri and Simon Pearce, as well as some French and Italian specialty lines.
Additionally, McKay went on to explain that cooking classes have also been a help when it comes to getting new customers as well as keeping older customers interested in store happenings.
