Bradley Fair to be home to Sephora

Ladies, this one's for you. Sephora —the beauty supplier so many of you visit when traveling outside of Wichita — is coming to Bradley Fair .

Laham Development, the developer of Bradley Fair, says the store will open this spring between Jason's Deli and Gymboree . This will fill the remainder of the Restoration Hardware space.

No one with Sephora, which has North American headquarters in San Francisco, |could be reached for comment.

The chain, which is known for its distinctive store designs, has a private label line of products in addition to more than 200 brands of other items.

Sephora offers skin and hair care products, bath and body products, makeup and fragrances.

The store will have a Sephora Beauty Studio , Scentsa , which is a kiosk where customers can easily search for fragrances, and a Beauty Insider rewards program.

Sephora is owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy , a luxury goods group based in Paris.

Christi Royse of J.P. Weigand & Sons handled the deal for Bradley Fair.

Last day in business

Today is Martin & Churchill's last day in business.

The 60-year-old firm most recently has been in Wilson Estates Office Park near 21st and Rock Road.

Marvin Martin started the firm in 1951 and had various partners through the years, including Stan Churchill , who joined in 1963.

There have been six attorneys at the business most recently.

"The attorneys of Martin and Churchill have decided to move our practices to different law firms," says attorney Don Hill . "We believe this was in the best interest of our clients, and we believe it was the right thing to do."

Hill won't elaborate, though he says it was a mutual decision.

"There is no dissension or disagreement among us," he says. "This is all very amicable."

Hill has joined Adams Jones .

Churchill will operate his practice, Churchill LLC , from his home.

Brad Murphree will have Murphree Law Office at 445 N. Waco.

Mike Kennalley is joining Stinson Morrison Hecker .

Jack Peggs is opening the Law Office of Jack Peggs at 111 S. Whittier.

Gary Jones, who worked for Martin & Churchill part time, will continue his Law Office of Gary Jones at 1919 N. Amidon.

Hill says Martin & Churchill has had a reputation for integrity and excellence during its decades in business.

"The individual attorneys will continue that in their new associations."

Expanded Hana opens

It's a month later than she planned, but Eunice Kim is happy to say her newly expanded Hana Cafe in Old Town Square is opening today.

The new portion of the restaurant opened Monday in the former Picture Framing & More space, but the previous Hana space has been undergoing remodeling since then.

That part of the restaurant will close again briefly early next week to have its floors redone, but it should be back open quickly.

Kim doubled her space and has added sushi and sake bars.

Though she's disappointed by construction delays, Kim is happy with how the new space turned out.

"It's very nice."
