Construction to start within weeks at new Kwik Shop at 13th and Woodlawn

WICHITA — It was January 2012 when Have You Heard? first reported that a Kwik Shop is going to open next to the Dillons at 13th and Woodlawn.

In June, Kwik Shop confirmed that it would happen, but then construction got held up.

Now, it really is about to start.

“We’ve worked out all the details of the project,” says Clay Brasher, Kwik Shop’s director of real estate.

“We just needed to work through lease documents,” he says. “We’ve gotten beyond all that now.”

Within the next few weeks, Brasher says the company “will get some things in motion there.”

Once construction starts, he says, “We’re probably realistically looking at around four months or so from start to finish.”
