The sixth Wichita-area Sally Beauty store is going to open at Slawson Cos.NewMarket Square at 21st and Maize Road later this year.

“We have been watching this … sub area of Wichita,” says Paul Myrick, vice president of real estate for the Denton, Texas-based Sally Beauty Holdings.

He says retail in the area along with the population and strong demographics are ideal for the store.

“We surely thought it was a hole for us in the market.”

The 1,564-square-foot store will be next to the new Interstate Battery site.

Myrick says the chain has more than 7,000 products in its stores. The main focus is on hair and nail items, but there are some cosmetics and fragrances as well.

“Everything to meet your beauty needs.”

Myrick says the newest Wichita Sally Beauty likely will open in November.

“We are targeting before holidays set in.”
