Al's Old & New Book Store looking for new home after almost six decades in Delano

WICHITA — Al's Old & New Book Store owner Anita Siemer says she's "reeling."

That's because in about three months she'll be forced to move her store from its home at 1710 W. Douglas between Seneca and Meridian.

Siemer has owned the store for nine years, but it's been in that location for four decades and in Delano for almost 60 years.

"I'm trying to stay in Delano," she says.

Her landlord is selling the building, and Siemer says she's not sure where she'll find such accommodating rent again.

"My rent here has been really friendly over the years."
