Barefoot Contessa was situated on the Westhampton Beach, New York.  After purchasing that store she quickly moved to New York and took the ownership and management of that store, but she did not ever tried to change the store’s name because this store was named in tribute to his original owner inspired by the 1954 film starring Ava Gardener. She gradually expanded that store in just one year, across the street and then keeps on extending its location and area covered. Garten in the year 1985 shifted her store to a new vacated premise of Dean  & DeLuca, gourmet shop in the flourishing village, Loan Island of East Hampton and thereafter her store was covering the total area of 280 m2 which was earlier 37 m2 or 3000 sq. foot which was earlier 400 sq. foot.
