A friend of mine received an email about an employment opportunity for Kirkland's- upon closer inspection- she nticed the location was for the Beaver Creek shopping center in Apex.

I would have to guess that they are taking over the space at the end by HomeGoods, that was formerly occupied by , was it Curcuit Ciy, if my memory serves me correctly.

I have noticed them doing some work inside that space recently & wondered if a new tenant was coming in.

Although I much prefer Homegoods, glad to hear another store is coming to Beaver Creek! Thanks for the info...

I didn't know Kirkland's was still around? Are they still primarily instead malls? I find them taking up that vacant space odd since it's right next to Homegoods as their competitors and the space seems quite large for them. I would have prefered seeing World Market, Pier 1, Best Buy, Staples, or Bed Bath.

But it's better than an empty parcel.

I've never cared for Kirkland's, but I went in one a couple years ago because a friend wanted to go. As soon as I entered the store an overwhelming candle/freshener smell came over me and gave me the worst headache. I will never go in a Kirkland's again. I was surprised they were still around too.

I think they are leaving their mall locations and moving to the stand alone concept instead. Kirklands is okay. Homegoods is better I must admit.

I like some of the things in Kirklands, but every one I've visited has been so crowded and cluttered. The rugs that they stack up are easy to trip over. (I tried not to end that in a preposition, but oh well.) I agree with DanielleNC about the aroma. I'm so sensitive I can't even walk NEAR some stores. (Yankee Candle is the worst!)

I couldn't agree more about the noxious smell found inside ALL Kirkland's stores- I have asthma & boy does that trigger an attack! Maybe they should have ventilators at the door- LOL!

Another store that I cannot shop in is Abercrombie & Fitch for the same reason.

Wish it was a, "Hobby Lobby", but those only seem to be out in the western states.

Although not in The Triangle, there are nine in NC. Store Locations I love Hobby Lobby, it's like a Michael's + Home Goods + Joann's with great prices.
