Rylee & Reece Kids Boutique and Party Place moving to Maple and Ridge Road

WICHITA — Rylee & Reece Kids Boutique and Party Place is moving – again.

When Tiffany Garner and her mother, Lynette, bought the children’s shop in early 2011, they moved it from Comotara Center on the east side to NewMarket Square at 21st and Maize Road.

Now, they’re moving to the center at the northeast corner of Maple and Ridge Road.

“We have found a bigger space,” Tiffany Garner says. “We’re able to lower our overhead. It’s just going to give us a bigger opportunity for the store.”

They now have about 2,000 square feet. The new space will have an additional 400 square feet.

“The party room is a little bit more separate,” Garner says.

About 60 percent of their business is through the party room. There will be additional themes for parties at the new space.

Garner says the party-room business has doubled from what it was on the east side.

She says the “west side loves us.”

“We’ve got a huge response from the west side.”

Lynette Garner says the new location will help bring some former customers from the east side, too.

“Being right off Kellogg, the east side can get to us easier.”

In addition to expanding party possibilities, she says the shop’s retail offerings may expand.

“We’re considering going into the cloth diaper business because we’ll have more room,” Lynette Garner says.

Don Piros of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal.

The Garners hope to open in the new space by Aug. 1.
