West-side fans of Kirsten Bender’s Andover-based Popcorner store will be happy to know she’s heard their “overwhelming” cries and is opening closer to them – at least temporarily.
Bender is opening a seasonal Popcorner store in the same center as Jimmie’s Diner at 21st and Tyler.
The store will open Oct. 3 and have sales at least through the holidays.
“We’re hoping to make it a permanent location,” Bender says of the almost 2,000-square-foot space.
She says she’ll evaluate her sales and make a decision by January.
“We’re going to give it a shot.”
