Lady Grace to leave Delano for the west side

WICHITA — Lady Grace, a Delano boutique, soon will be gracing the west side.

Jodie Mayer’s shop currently is at 810 W. Douglas. In March, she’s moving it to George Holland’s development at the northwest corner of Kellogg and Tyler.

“I like the looks of those buildings,” Mayer says of the western-themed buildings on the property.

There’s one thing she likes even more, though.

“Traffic,” Mayer says.

She says there will be a lot more cars coming by her new shop.

“We just don’t have the traffic in the Delano area,” Mayer says.

The more than two-year-old Lady Grace sells women’s clothing, jewelry, purses and boots.

The new space will have 1,500 square feet, which is a bit smaller than the current Lady Grace space.

Look for the new location to open by the middle of March at the latest.

Lady Grace Boutique to move to former Rewound Sounds space in Delano

WICHITA — Lady Grace Boutique in Delano is moving, but not far.

“We want to move east of Seneca so we are actually in the heart of Delano,” says manager Tory Mayer.

The shop opened in late 2010 in 700 square feet at 1316 W. Douglas, which is west of Seneca.

“I think people think Delano stops after Seneca,” Mayer says.

The new space is at 810 W. Douglas in the former Rewound Sounds space, which is about 2,400 square feet.

“It’s huge,” Mayer says of the two-story building.

She and her mother-in-law, Jodie Mayer, who owns the shop, will use the second story for storage.

The shop, which sells women’s apparel, accessories, purses, jewelry, shoes and boots and some home decor, will be on the first floor.

Tory Mayer says they like that there will be more parking at the new store, which opens April 19, and that it will be closer to other businesses.

“I just think we’ll get a better traffic flow over there,” she says.

“The opportunity came up, and we’re taking it.”
