Frou Frou to expand at the Shops at Tallgrass

WICHITA — At a time a lot of businesses are closing or downsizing, the 6-year-old Frou Frou at the Shops at Tallgrass is expanding.

"We just have this place so cram-packed with stuff," owner Betsy Morrison says of the jewelry, handbags, shoes and gifts she sells.

"It's too packed."

Morrison has 2,686 square feet at the development, which is at 21st and Rock, and she's adding 1,750 square feet more.

April Reed of Slawson Cos. handled the deal.

“Betsy’s a great example of someone who upgraded her location and saw that pay off,” Reed says. “It speaks volumes that she’s now expanding.”

Morrison is expanding into the former Emily's A Salon space.

Owner Emily Shonka downsized last year and moved her salon two buildings over at the same center.

Morrison is knocking out a wall between her store and the former salon space.
