Supplement World, which recently opened its third store, is signing a lease for its fourth store this week.

For now, CEO Dustin West will say only that the store will open on the east side around October.

“We just think we’ll have a better reach with those east-side Wichita people,” West says.

There’s also a Supplement World in Andover – the first the small chain opened in 2013.

Supplement World opened on the west side at Central and Ridge in 2014. That store is now is undergoing remodeling, in part to update with new colors and styles from a recent rebranding of the business.

“That store’s really taken off for us,” West says.

Its grand reopening will be July 22 and 23.

West calls it “just an introduction to the new store, the new look.” There will be special promotions and sales as well.

He says the remodeling will result in a better layout of the store and more shelf space, which will lead to an expanded inventory.

Supplement World entered Oklahoma with an Oklahoma City store in April.

West says to look for news about the new Wichita store in the next couple of weeks.
