WICHITA — Years ago, Michele Wheeler’s dream was to open a small makeup and skin-care store.
Instead, the former Blockbuster Video executive bought the much larger Beau Monde Spa and Boutique (with a popular makeup bar) at Comotara Center, remodeled and expanded it, and then opened a second location at NewMarket Square.
Now, she’s getting back to her first idea with a 1,300-square-foot makeup and skin-care boutique in the former Myoptix space at Douglas and Oliver.
Wheeler hasn’t settled on a name yet, but it will include the words Beau Monde.
“It’s the try-before-you-buy concept,” Wheeler says of the products she’ll offer.
