Kaight, a popular women’s clothing boutique founded in 2006 in Beacon, NY, has officially opened its second location here in Montclair located at 594 Valley Road. The brand was born out of a mission to become and provide an opportunity for others to become conscious consumers without sacrificing style. Read on to learn more about Kaight and what to expect at the new Montclair storefront.
Kate McGregor, the founder of the namesake boutique explained the reason for starting it was because she was tired of being a fast-fashion consumer. “Growing up in small-town Ohio, early values included supporting small businesses and buying products that were Made in the USA – and made to last. I wore hand-me-downs. My mother shopped smart and she often made my clothes. Shopping was a treat (not a daily activity) and purchases were thoughtful. When I moved to NYC and began my professional career, I was seduced by the thrill of shopping at the big, fast-fashion retailers, until one day, I wasn’t anymore,” she wrote on the boutique’s website.

She found herself at a “crossroads” and made the decision to open Kaight in 2006. Kate’s mission was and is to provide consumers with fashion-forward clothing and accessory options that meet the following criteria: local production, organic textiles, reclaimed materials, fair trade, and zero waste.
Many of the brands sold at Kaight are small, women-owned businesses that value authenticity and good-quality goods.
