Trending Stores: One Kings Lane, Southampton, New York
Online home décor and furniture retailer One Kings Lane unveiled a refreshed interior for its first-ever permanent brick-and-mortar shop.
The 3,500-sq.-ft. store is located in the heart of the upscale resort town of Southampton, New York, in a 19th century, two-story building that formerly housed a library. It opened as a seasonal pop-up last summer to take advantage of the area’s summer visitors. Citing the strong customer response, One Kings Lane decided to extend the lease past Labor Day and make the location a year-round space.
The store features a curated selection of product, including one-of-a-kind vintage pieces, that is regularly refreshed as items sell out. Customers can also book appointments for free consultations with in-house interior designers.
One Kings Lane was acquired by Bed Bath & Beyond in 2016.

Kroger honored for energy efficiency
The Kroger Co. is on track for big savings in energy use.
The supermarket giant has received the 2018 Energy Star Partner of the Year Award for its prioritization of Energy Star best practices in its energy management strategy and for its continued commitment to energy reduction. Kroger’s long-term goal is to reduce cumulative energy consumption — in the form of electricity — in its stores by 40% by 2020, as the chain outlined in its sustainability report.
Kroger has earned more Energy Star building certifications than any other commercial entity by certifying 320 grocery stores in 2017, bringing the total number of stores certified to 793 since 2011. The company has saved 48.7 million kilowatt hours of electricity by installing more than 3.8 million LED lamps.
“Kroger uses the EPA’s Energy Star program to track and assess energy consumption across our retail locations,” said Keith Oliver, Kroger’s VP of facility engineering. Oliver. “We benchmark building energy performance, assess energy management goals over time, and identify strategic opportunities for savings.”
Beyond its retail operations, Kroger’s logistics team continues to track its “ton miles per gallon” (TMPG) and look to new technologies to increase delivery and operational efficiencies. Kroger has committed to adding Tesla Semi electric trucks to its distribution fleet, which require lower energy cost per mile in comparison to conventional diesel tractors.
