Midwest Hearing Aids to open at 45th and Maize Road

Midwest Hearing Aids has always been a family business, and its newest store – the chain’s 42nd – will bring one more family member into the business.

Josh Brewster will manage a new Midwest Hearing Aids that’s going to open in the center at the southeast corner of 45th and Maize Road.

“It’s a good feeling,” president Terry Brewster says of having his nephew join the business.

“My uncle gave me the opportunity,” says Josh Brewster, who also will manage the existing Midwest Hearing Aids in Kingman.

His father, Rob Brewster, runs the Midwest Hearing Aids in Newton and Winfield. His grandparents, Delbert and Pauline Brewster, were the first family members to buy into the business, which started in 1948.

The new west-side office will be in 1,300 square feet and also will have a Balance Center. It will open in early April.

Don Piros at Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal.

Josh Brewster has been in construction for 20 years.

“It’s nice to be able to change and go to something new,” he says.

Brewster says it’s especially great to go into a family business.

“This makes me feel like it’s more of a career for me to do.”
