WICHITA — Fresh Market, which opened at Bradley Fair in June, is getting a new neighbor.
Versona Accessories is taking the last of the former Ultimate Electronics space.
"Versona is a store that we have been interested in for quite some time," says Cathy Erickson, vice president at Laham Development.
"They are in other lifestyle centers similar to Bradley Fair, and we feel they're a great complement to our existing women's fashion mix."
Versona, which is owned by North Carolina-based CATO Corp., sells jewelry, sunglasses, handbags, scarves, belts, footwear and hair accessories.
Currently, there are 22 of the stores nationally.
Erickson says the quality of Versona's merchandise sets it apart from some other popular accessory stores.
Versona will open in early spring in 7,500 square feet to the west of Fresh Market and employ about 25 people.
