Phil Ruffin’s Peach Tree center at the northeast corner of Kellogg and Rock Road is seeing some new activity.
Express Employment Professionals has opened there, and an AT&T store and Juicy’s Vapor Lounge will be coming to the center.
An AT&T authorized retailer is taking 2,625 square feet where RadioShack used to be.
The retailer currently has a store at 538 S. Rock Road, and it will remain open until the Peach Tree space is ready.

The store sells phones, accessories, home automation solutions, connected devices and DirecTV.
Juicy’s Vapor Lounge is a Ponca City-based business that started in the summer of 2013 and now has 10 stores, mostly in Kansas.
“The vast majority of our stores are in Kansas,” says the company’s Zac Kirby. “We’re all along I-70.”
He says Oklahoma is already saturated with businesses that sell e-cigarettes and accessories.
“We’re just now making our way to Wichita,” Kirby says.
The Peach Tree store will be 1,200 square feet and will open around April 1.
“We’d like to do two or three,” Kirby says of Wichita. “This Kellogg and Rock location’s a really good starting point. I thought the visibility would be really great there getting our name out.”
