World Market will have a ribbon-cutting and grand opening on Nov. 14 at the 25,000-square-foot store at 2321 Sir Barton Way.
Jeff Bakehorn, a World Market district manager, said the store will have lots of discounts and some giveaways for first-day shoppers.
Owned by Bed Bath & Beyond, as is Buy Buy Baby, World Market features furniture, rugs, kitchen and dinnerware, jewelry and clothing, decor and holiday items.
Many of the items come from overseas, so if you are looking for place to source Swedish ginger snaps, British jellies or Japanese pancake mix (a real thing), World Market has you covered. The store also usually offers a selection of wine and spirits but not at the Lexington store.
Bakehorn said for the grand opening there will be lots of tastings in the store, so that new customers can sample the goodies.
“We try to bring in unique, special things that are not in your local grocery store,” Bakehorn said. “We’re sourcing for unusual items that any cook would need ... We try to be a one-stop shop for food, utensils and decor.”
