WICHITA — A new liquor store and cigar shop are coming to the Village at Greenwich at 21st and Greenwich.
Anisha Patel plans to open the Liquor Cabinet and Cigars & More in 3,000 square feet by Aug. 1.
“We’re going to try to push for before that,” she says.
Her brother, Jay, is doing a lot of the work to get the store ready.
Anisha Patel owns America’s Best Value Inn & Suites in Hesston. That’s kind of what inspired her to go into a new line of work.
“I want to try to trend away from a 24-hour business,” she says. “If someone doesn’t show up, you’re filling in that shift.”
She thinks the liquor store business will be more low key.
“Doesn’t require too much of a strain on the brain.”
Not that she’s giving up the hotel business.
“It’s what brought me my luck in life, so you don’t get rid of that.”
