WICHITA — The building that Aisak Corp. recently purchased at 3122 S. Seneca has a couple of new tenants that will be opening in the next week or two.

Boost Mobile is taking about 1,200 square feet for its fifth Wichita store.

"We don't have anything in the South Seneca area," co-owner Shumair Tanjwani says.

In addition to a lot of traffic in the area, Tanjwani says a lot of other mobile phone dealers are nearby.

"That's why I decided to go there," he says. "We kind of work off each other. It's kind of like a mall. People go to one stop to shop for certain things."

Traffic count also is what's driving the owners of Big E's Vapor Shop to open in about 1,700 square feet at the center.

"The traffic count is crazy high in that area," says Sherri Hischke, who owns the business with Eldon Simmons and Dixie Zellner.

They also have stores near Lincoln and Rock Road and 21st and Tyler.

The stores sell vapor equipment, juice and cigarettes.

All Family Insurance is the only tenant currently in the South Seneca building. There’s still space left to lease there.

About Carrie Rengers

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.
