WICHITA — New "green" products come on the market every day, and now two Wichita brothers are going to open a store to sell them exclusively.
Justin and Garrett Bjork are opening Verde Sustainable Living in Mill Creek Village near Central and Rock.
"We are going to be a green-living store," Justin Bjork says. "So basically we're going to carry all kinds of home furnishings, gifts, building supplies — pretty much anything you can use in your home that's green or eco-friendly or sustainable."
Garrett Bjork has been living in California for the last couple of years and working for a similar company.
