Personally Yours to move, expand at NewMarket Square

WICHITA — When Have You Heard? last checked in with Personally Yours owner Linda Webb, she was making what she called "the big move" from 21st and Tyler to NewMarket Square at 21st and Maize Road.

More recently, Webb says she had to make a choice: Either expand the shop or retire.

"We are expanding," she says.

Her store, which Webb describes as a ladies and babies gift boutique featuring custom embroidery, is jumping from 1,260 square feet to 2,300 square feet.

"We're just moving across the parking lot," Webb says.

She's taking the former Wild at Heart space.

The move and expansion will allow more room for merchandise, including new product lines, and will make space for parties and seminars.

For instance, last year Webb says she had a seminar on decorating for the holidays with things already at your house. "We had a lot of fun with it, but we were just on top of each other."

She had to turn down a local cookbook author who wanted to have a signing there.

"This way, we will have some room to do those," Webb says of the new space.
