WICHITA — More than four years after Sportsman's Warehouse closed its east Wichita store, a new business is opening there.

Ashley Furniture HomeStore-Wichita will open at the site in One Kellogg Place, which is just east of Kellogg and Greenwich, this fall.

"It took me two years to get this building bought," says Jay Storey, president of Wichita Furniture.

In addition to being an Ashley Furniture licensee, Wichita Furniture is the parent company of Furniture on Consignment.

Storey says the 55,000-square-foot building at One Kellogg Place had gone through a couple of different holding companies that purchased it with a bundle of other buildings.

"Their business was to lease properties, and we wanted to own property," Storey says. "We're here to stay."

Storey opened his first Ashley Furniture store near 21st and Maize Road in 2002.

"There was a need out there that we filled," he says.
