WICHITA — The Domestic Laundry building is so popular, it's selling for the second time in less than two years.

"Yes, we are in contract to sell that building, surprisingly enough," says Transitions Group owner Bill Jackson. "Someone else wants it worse than we do."

Jackson, who used to own Abode Home, and six employees bought the building at 1425 E. Douglas just east of Old Town in September 2012.

"We never had any intent of buying it to sell it," Jackson says. "We love the building and love the community along there."

Jackson says he understands the buyer wants the building's first floor space fronting Douglas for a showroom and then will use third floor space for offices.

It looks like Joe Hayes is buying the building for his Open Roads Brands business, which creates reproductions of nostalgic signs and other Americana memorabilia.
