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.

A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
