Francesca's Collections to open at Bradley Fair ahead of schedule

WICHITA — Here’s something you don’t read about in business every day.

Francesca’s Collections is ahead of schedule and will open at Bradley Fair on Saturday.

"We thought it was going to be another couple of weeks, but they're ready," says Karen James of Laham Development, the Bradley Fair developer.

Francesca's, a national boutique that sells women’s clothing, jewelry and gifts, is taking the space where Genevieve G Shoes used to be.

Genevieve Gordon moved her business into Brick's, her father Russ Gordon's store at Bradley Fair.

Francesca’s will be located between Lyndon’s and Bath & Body Works.

Store hours will be 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays.
