WICHITA The Howards Optique at Bradley Fair is moving, but not far.
In December, the store will move between Sephora and Jasons Deli, which are also in Bradley Fair.
The relocation of Howards Optique will allow us to assemble approximately 4,000 square feet of space to accommodate new tenants, says Cathy Erickson, vice president at Laham Development.
We have a waiting list of stores and restaurants that would like to be at Bradley Fair, she says. They will often wait on the sidelines until we find the right space for them.
When Howards leaves its current space, that will free up about 2,000 square feet next to the former FranklinCovey store, which was also about 2,000 square feet. A new retailer or retailers will go in the approximately 4,000 square feet.
With the Howards move, the more than 40-year-old store is adding more accessories and gift items.
There are six Howards Optique stores in Wichita. The Bradley Fair store opened in 1998 and carries eyewear from such brands as Cartier, David Yurman and Robert Marc.
Look for more news soon about what retailer or retailers may be moving into Bradley Fair.
