WICHITA — East-siders, Ross Dress For Less has not forgotten you.
Last week, Have You Heard? reported the discount chain is opening in 25,000 square feet of the former Circuit City space on West Kellogg.
Now, the national retailer has signed a deal for the 25,000 square feet Barnes & Noble is vacating at Eastgate Plaza at Kellogg and Rock Road.
Ross Dress For Less will take possession of the building in February. Remodeling should take two or three months.
“It’s great for the center,” says Andy Boyd of Walter Morris Cos., who is one of the brokers who handled the deal.
“It’s kind of becoming more of a fashion-centric center.”
Boyd says Ross Dress For Less’ two leases here also represent growth nationally and confidence in Wichita.
Christian Ablah of Classic Real Estate and Randi Lefko of R.H. Johnson in Kansas City also were involved in the deal.
