Marine World to move to its own site on West Kellogg

WICHITA — Les Eck is moving his Marine World from Rusty Eck Ford on East Kellogg to its own space at 7979 W. Kellogg.

"You know the ironic thing about 7979 West Kellogg?" Eck says. "I used to wash cars there in the 1970s."

His father, Rusty, had a used car lot there.

"That same damn building was there till I razed it last week," Eck says.

He says he didn't even do a walk-through before razing it because it was a junky building even in the 1970s.

Eck is moving Marine World, which sells new and used boats, wakeboards and accessories, for two reasons.
