Personally Yours to move to NewMarket Square

WICHITA — Personally Yours, a gift store that specializes in custom embroidery, is moving from 21st and Tyler to 21st and Maize.

“We’re making the big move to NewMarket,” Linda Webb says of NewMarket Square.

Webb owns the shop with her husband, Michael.

“We have really enjoyed where we have been,” she says of 2243 N. Tyler.

There aren’t as many other retail outlets by her current store as her new space will have, though.

“We’ll have a better variety of traffic,” Webb says.

She’s moving into the 1,260 square feet that Chelmsford Tea & Gifts will be vacating late this month.

The Webbs will spend the first couple of weeks of August remodeling the new space, which will feature a new color scheme for the store, and then open by the third weekend in August.

April Reed of Slawson Cos., the NewMarket developer, handled the deal.

Personally Yours has been on North Tyler for four years and was in Delano for 2½ years before that.

With the new move, the store, which caters to women and babies, will expand its accessory line for women.

That includes jewelry and purses among other accessories.

“A lot of our items we can personalize,” Webb says of her custom embroidery.

“It makes the gift a little special.”
