WICHITA — Jennifer Peterson is a Prudential Dinning-Beard Realtors agent, but when she heard her favorite spa was closing, she decided to get into that business as well.
“I just saw a really good opportunity in the salon,” Peterson says. “I’ve been a client there for probably five years and just hated to see it go away because it felt like this area in Derby and the surrounding towns really needed something like that.”
Peterson will continue to sell real estate as well.
She says she’ll offer the same services Sabai has offered, including hair, makeup, massage, nails, facials and skincare.
“Pretty full service” is how she describes it.
Peterson plans to remodel the salon’s 3,000 square feet.
“We’re going to give the interior a little bit of a facelift,” she says. “Freshen it up.”
Occidental Management president Chad Stafford handled the deal. Occidental owns Spring Creek.
Stafford says there’s one 1,600-square-foot vacancy left at the 36,000-square-foot center.
Peterson says she plans to expand her business’ hours and has other expansion plans for the future.
“We hope to maybe offer some more services in the future as we kind of build.”
