Haysville is getting a new Kwik Shop

WICHITA — At long last, Haysville is getting a new Kwik Shop.

It looked like a new store was going to open a few years back, but it didn’t happen.

Now, one is under construction at the northeast corner of Grand and Meridian. It will replace the current store at 424 W. Grand.

“Haysville has been under review for some time by Kwik Shop,” director of real estate Clay Brasher said in an e-mail.

“Kwik Shop is extremely excited about the current store project, and we feel that our customers will be as well. Kwik Shop has received a lot of feedback from our customers in the Haysville community suggesting an upgrade to our current facility and offering, and we are very happy to be able to provide just that.”

At more than 7,500 square feet, the store will be bigger than Kwik Shop’s other new stores at 37th and Maize Road and 13th and Woodlawn.

There will be an expanded grocery area with more fresh items.

Look for the new Kwik Shop to open in 2014.

Kwik Shop to open at Stonebridge June 26

WICHITA — As Have You Heard? reported in September, a new Kwik Shop is coming to the Stonebridge development at the southeast corner of 37th Street North and Maize Road.

It now has an opening date: June 26.

Kwik Shop, which is operated by Kroger, was the third business to announce its opening at Stonebridge followed by anchor tenant Menards and then Sonic last fall.

At the time, Kwik Shop director of real estate Clay Brasher said customers had been asking for a store in that area, and he said Kwik Shop wanted to expand its presence.

The store will have 10 fuel pumps, which can serve 20 vehicles for gas and diesel.

In addition to traditional Kwik Shop offerings, there will be grocery items and fresh food available. Brasher said the food selection will be extensive.

Construction to start within weeks at new Kwik Shop at 13th and Woodlawn

WICHITA — It was January 2012 when Have You Heard? first reported that a Kwik Shop is going to open next to the Dillons at 13th and Woodlawn.

In June, Kwik Shop confirmed that it would happen, but then construction got held up.

Now, it really is about to start.

“We’ve worked out all the details of the project,” says Clay Brasher, Kwik Shop’s director of real estate.

“We just needed to work through lease documents,” he says. “We’ve gotten beyond all that now.”

Within the next few weeks, Brasher says the company “will get some things in motion there.”

Once construction starts, he says, “We’re probably realistically looking at around four months or so from start to finish.”

Kwik Shop at 13th and Woodlawn in flux

WICHITA — There’s still a good chance a Kwik Shop is coming to 13th and Woodlawn, but it’s not for certain.

“It remains to be seen,” says Clay Brasher, Kwik Shop’s director of real estate.

“There’s some things that we’re working through,” he says of working with the center on the southwest corner. “It’s just kind of been an ongoing discussion.”

The chain hopes to build a 4,000-square-foot store with eight fuel pumps, which equates to 16 fueling stations.

If it happens, there won’t be a pharmacy but there will be some grocery items.

Brasher says a decision will come sooner rather than later.

“We still believe that we’ll get (it) done at some point.”

Kwik Shop still coming to 13th and Woodlawn

UPDATED — An alert reader who saw a construction sign go up and then come down wonders if the Kwik Shop is still going to happen at 13th and Woodlawn near the Dillons.

It is, according to Clay Brasher, director of real estate.

“It’s probably a couple of months away from actually starting construction,” he says.

The store will be about 4,000 square feet. There will be eight fuel pumps, which equates to 16 fueling stations.

Brasher says there won’t be a pharmacy but there will be some grocery items.

“It’ll have a pretty good selection of Dillons food at Dillons prices.”

Kwik Shop to open at Stonebridge

UPDATED — A new Kwik Shop is coming to the Stonebridge development at the southeast corner of 37th Street North and Maize Road.

“Our customers have spoken, basically,” says Clay Brasher, Kwik Shop’s director of real estate. “That’s the main reason.”

Kwik Shop, which is operated by Kroger, has more than 125 stores in Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska. There are 19 Kwik Shops in Wichita. Kroger-owned Dillons has a number of fuel centers at its stores as well.

“We can use the larger presence,” Brasher says.

Menards anchors the 37-acre Stonebridge development, and Sonic also opened there a few weeks ago. Kwik Shop is the third business to be announced there.

“We feel like it’s going to help us spur even more activity,” says Randy Furstenberg, CFO of Vantage Point Properties, the Stonebridge developer.

“Them going there gives us some momentum that will help us.”

Brasher says he’s not sure how big the Kwik Shop will be yet.

“We’re actually still developing our plans on the size and everything it will include inside the store.”

There won’t be a pharmacy as some Kwik Shops now have, but there will be grocery items.

“It’ll have a large offering of food products in it,” Brasher says.

Construction on the store will start this year and should be completed by spring.

“So it’ll be a pretty quick deal for them,” Furstenberg says.

Vantage Point’s Marty Moody handled the deal with Grant Tidemann of J.P. Weigand & Sons, Brad Saville of Landmark Commercial Real Estate and Christian Ablah of Classic Real Estate.
