JACKSON HEIGHTS — Boutique shop Lockwood opened its third shop in Queens on Thursday with a bright and airy location on 37th Avenue.
Owner Mackenzi Farquer told DNAinfo in April the storefront near 78th Street reminded her of home — and she's filled the 900 square-foot space with Queens-centric t-shirts, baby clothes and home goods with a fun flair.

Farquer opened her first store, a gift shop called SITE NYC, in Astoria in 2007. She closed that shop in 2013 and opened it in a bigger space on 33rd Street near Broadway, with the new name Lockwood.

She had wanted to expand to other parts of Queens and was ultimately swayed by the tree-lined 37th Avenue.

Farquer said they wanted to focus on more household items, so they have dishes, plates and table linens only sold in the Jackson Heights location.
There's also a large section for kids clothing, toys and books.
Lockwood Jackson Heights, 77-13 37th Ave., is planning a grand opening celebration on Sept. 3 at 6 p.m., with discounts and refreshments.
