Verde Sustainable Living to open at Mill Creek Village

WICHITA — New “green” products come on the market every day, and now two Wichita brothers are going to open a store to sell them exclusively.

Justin and Garrett Bjork are opening Verde Sustainable Living in Mill Creek Village near Central and Rock.

“We are going to be a green-living store,” Justin Bjork says. “So basically we’re going to carry all kinds of home furnishings, gifts, building supplies — pretty much anything you can use in your home that’s green or eco-friendly or sustainable.”

Garrett Bjork has been living in California for the last couple of years and working for a similar company.

“He’s kind of bringing his expertise here,” Justin Bjork says.

The 2,400-square-foot store will open June 18.

Andy Boyd of Walter Morris Cos. and Ken Saville of Transamerican Management handled the deal.

Garrett Bjork says Verde will offer a range of organic cotton items, such as baby clothing and dish towels; items made from bamboo, such as dishware; recycled items, such as glassware; and nontoxic supplies, such as paint and cleaners.
