New Furniture Disposal to open at Plaza West

WICHITA — Former Weekends Furniture & Sleep Shop owner David Davis closed his Derby store in April and now plans a new furniture store in Wichita.

New Furniture Disposal will open June 4 at the Plaza West shopping center at the southwest corner of Central and West. That’s also where Wal-Mart is looking to open one of its Neighborhood Markets.

“They do have something in the works with Wal-Mart, too,” Davis says of the owners of that space. “If they take it, then they take it.”

Davis is leasing month-to-month and will be prepared to relocate if the Wal-Mart deal happens.

Davis says he’s selling a few things from Weekends that didn’t sell previously. Mostly, though, he’s buying furniture from factories that have excess inventory due to the economy.

Also at that corner, look for the renovated Taco Shop to reopen in mid-June.
