WICHITA — Even in difficult economic times, women need bridal and prom gowns, as April Huang is discovering.
In 2008, Huang opened Dress Gallery in 2,500 square feet near the southeast corner of Douglas and Seneca in Delano.
Now, she's expanding into an additional 2,000 square feet next door.
"We are growing," Huang says. "We're out of room, basically."
The bridal side of her business is what's really growing.
Huang is moving her prom and special occasion dresses to the new 2,000 square feet so she can have more room for an expanded selection of bridal gowns.
Instead of four fitting stations, she'll now have six. Huang says the extra room will allow for more personal, exclusive service.
The new space opens Saturday.
