WICHITA — When Chris Ridder quit his job at a Wichita sign company a week ago, he told his employer – a friend – he was looking for a new opportunity.
Now Ridder is opening his own sign shop.
"This is the new opportunity," he says.
"After you're together so long, you either get married or you get divorced, so I guess we're getting divorced."

The shop, which opens today, is SignLab.net.
"That just gives everybody instant access to where my website is," Ridder says.
He has a storefront, too, in 2,500 square feet at 1712 W. Douglas in Delano.
SignLab.net will sell banners, posters, aluminum signs, vehicle displays and real estate signs, among others.
"The list is pretty long," Ridder says.
