2 Attics Antique Mall and Estate Liquidation Services to downsize

WICHITA — In 2011, Kirby Melugin told Have You Heard? he was expanding his 2 Attics Antique Mall and Estate Liquidation Services to make more room for vendors.

Now, he’s downsizing his space near 61st and Hydraulic in Park City to give himself a little bit of breathing room.

“When it’s just me, it’s just kind of hard to take care of everything,” he says.

In addition to having the store, Melugin says he’s been doing a lot of on-site estate sales.

He says he’s decided to keep the 5,000 square feet he added in 2011 because it’s a little larger than the space he originally opened.

“The main thing is, we’re not closing. We’re just downsizing.”

After Labor Day, Melugin is going to start closing the store on Mondays and Tuesdays. Now, he’s open seven days a week.

“I need a day off,” he says.

“I’m going to work smarter, let’s just put it that way.”

2 Attics Antique Mall & Estate Liquidation Services expands in Park City

WICHITA — Who couldn’t use a little more attic space?

Kirby Melugin for one.

He opened 2 Attics Antique Mall & Estate Liquidation Services in Park City in April 2010 and already is expanding.

He’s able to expand near 61st and Hydraulic since the Park City Public Library relocated.

When renovation is complete, 2 Attics will have 9,000 square feet, which will make room for another 30 vendors.

Melugin already has 70 percent of the new space leased.

“It would be nice to get back to a waiting list,” he says.

A waiting list for vendors was common before he had the expanded space.

Melugin says it helps that Park City is known for its antiques.

“It’s a feel-good activity,” he says of collecting and decorating.

There’s no room left to expand where he’s at, but Melugin says that’s OK.

“I’ll be good for a while.”
