WICHITA — It took a few years longer than some Haysville residents hoped, but the new Kwik Shop is opening Monday at the northeast corner of Grand and Meridian.
It looked like a new store was going to open a few years back, but it didn't happen.
The new store is replacing the Kwik Shop at 424 W. Grand.
At more than 7,500 square feet, the new store is the second-largest Kwik Shop in the chain.
There are six fuel pumps, which means the pumps can fuel 12 vehicles at once.
There's an expanded cappuccino and condiment bar along with a range of ready-to-go foods, such as pizza and breakfast sandwiches along with a roller grill and toppings bar.
The Kwik Shop also will sell grocery items, including produce and meat from its sister store, Dillons.
Grand opening celebrations will be held Feb. 21 and 22.

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.
