KU sports store to open at Eastgate Plaza

WICHITA — The same company that has Lids sports cap stores in Towne East and Towne West Squares is bringing a KU store to Eastgate Plaza at Kellogg and Rock.

No one with Nashville-based Genesco is talking, but work is under way at the store, which will sell officially licensed KU merchandise.

It’s not clear when the 2,000-square-foot store will open.

It’s taking part of the former Souper!Salad! space at Eastgate.

Andy Boyd of Walter Morris Cos. represented Eastgate, and Christi Royse of J.P. Weigand & Sons represented the tenant.
