Orscheln Farm & Home to open in Goddard

UPDATED — Orscheln Farm & Home is going to be opening another Wichita-area store, this time in Goddard.

The Missouri-based company’s stores are similar to Atwoods Ranch & Home. Orscheln has stores in Wellington, Newton and El Dorado, among other cities relatively close to Wichita.

The company recently purchased two 1.75-acre lots in Goddard at the northeast corner of U.S. 54 and Main Street.

“They have closed, and they will be building a store there,” says Grant Glasgow of NAI Martens.

Glasgow handled the deal with Carl LaSala of Kansas City’s LaSala-Sonnenberg Commercial Realty and Gene Razook of Andeel & Co. Realtors.

Orscheln expects to start construction in the first half of 2014 when weather permits, and the new store should be open by the fall.
