High end food retailer Dean & DeLuca no longer has a retail shop in Wichita. It had one – briefly –but it closed in April 2016 at the Shops at Tallgrass after only six months in business.
What Wichita does still have is a Dean & DeLuca distribution warehouse, which is at 4727 S. Emporia St. It houses items the chain will sell in its stores across the country in a convenient, central United States location.
Over the course of the next two weekends, that warehouse is going to open to the public for a big sale.
The Dean & DeLuca Warehouse Sale will happen from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. It’ll happen again at the end of the month, from 5 to 8 p.m. on Sept. 29 and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sept. 30.
It will include packaged foods, olive oils, sugars, spices and frozen items like appetizers, said a Dean & DeLuca spokeswoman. Items will be discounted by about 70 percent.
The warehouse has put on public sales before, but it’s been a while. They’ll likely become even less frequent, the spokeswoman said.
