Fashion women’s boutique to open second store at Eastgate Plaza

WICHITA — What’s fashionable in west Wichita soon will be on the east side as well.

The Fashion women’s boutique at Central and West is getting a sister store.

Andy Young Lee and his wife, immigration lawyer Jihyun Kim, own the 7,500-square-foot store at Plaza West.

Their second store will be at Eastgate Plaza at Kellogg and Rock.

“There’s totally two different markets — east and west,” Kim says of Wichita.

The east store will start out smaller with about 2,500 square feet.

Andy Boyd of Walter Morris Cos. handled the deal.

“We’ve been looking for this location for a while, actually,” Kim says.

She hoped for more space, but she says the only other space at Eastgate was more than 10,000 square feet, and she says that’s more than she and her husband are ready for.

The location was a draw nonetheless.

“It gets a lot of traffic,” Kim says.

Buffet City to move within Plaza West

WICHITA — The new Walmart Neighborhood Market coming to Central and West will displace Buffet City, but the restaurant won’t have to move far.

Buffet City will remain at the Plaza West shopping center on the southwest corner of the intersection.

Instead of continuing to face Central, it will face West Street when it moves across from Dillons in two weeks.

Yuki Lin, whose family owns the business, says they’re planning several changes with the move.

The 8,000-square-foot space — compared to the restaurant’s current 7,000 square feet — will be large enough for a banquet room.

The grill will change from a Mongolian grill to a Japanese grill, which Lin says is more popular.

There also will be a sushi bar and an expanded buffet.

“People will enjoy it when they come in,” Lin says.
