Louie’s Coffee Dive replacement at Williams Ace Hardware is under consideration

WICHITA — Raymond Dondlinger is still contemplating what to do with the space that Louie’s Coffee Dive vacated at his family’s Williams Ace Hardware in Goddard.

The coffee shop lasted less than a year.

Dondlinger says he may take over the space or allow someone else to.

“I don’t have a direction as of yet,” he says. “I really do need to find something that fits that Goddard community the best.”

That could be a business such as a coffee shop, a flower shop or even a barber shop.

Dondlinger says he may find a use for it himself.

“I could see myself going further into the retail market somehow,” he says.
