WICHITA — Starting Block owner Tammy Riffel is opening a new store close to her existing one near 13th and Maize Road.
“It’s going to be an extension of the Starting Block,” Riffel says of TSB Imprint.
The Starting Block sells swimwear, but Riffel has always outsourced orders for embroidery, logos, screen prints and T-shirts for school and club teams. Now, she’s going to do them herself.
“It’s obviously cheaper instead of having a middle man.”
The Starting Block is at 1444 N. Maize Road just north of the intersection.
TSB Imprint is in a separate strip center that faces 13th Street. It’s next to Howard’s Optical Dispensary.
Riffel hopes to be open by July 1.
“Which is next week, isn’t it?” she says, noting that the summer is flying by.
“Oh, my gosh.”
