Ladies Golf Place to reopen on west side

When last we checked in with Mona Thomason in the fall, she was closing her Ladies Golf Place in Old Town. She said her plan was to keep some of her merchandise in various pro shops around Wichita and elsewhere.

Now, she’s reopening her shop, this time on the west side.

“I had really planned on closing,” Thomason says. “It just seemed like it was a good fit to continue for a while.”

Her new store, which will have the same name, will open later this month in 900 square feet at Central and St. Paul.

Thomason says she’ll still have merchandise in pro shops, where she says she’ll concentrate on new items. She says her shop will have new items as well, but she’ll focus more on clearance items there.

“It will be more of an outlet-type deal.”

Thomason says she’s also partnering with Golf Etc. Wichita to sell merchandise.

Though she had planned to focus mainly on online sales, Thomason says her customers let her know they wanted a retail presence, and she says she wants to make them happy.

“That’s important.”
