Invio Fine Furniture Consignment to move

WICHITA — This time last year, Have You Heard? reported that for the second time in less than six months — and the third time in less than two years — Invio Fine Furniture Consignment was expanding.

Now, Annie and Eric Johnsen are expanding their east-side business again and moving it to a new area.

The store is moving from 3,750 square feet at the strip center behind Havertys on Rock Road to 4,800 square feet at 535 N. Woodlawn next to Great Harvest Bread.

"It's got more space, and it's just more accessible," Annie Johnsen says.

She says she's had to advertise quite a bit to let people know where the store is currently, and it's worked well.

However, Johnsen says the new space "will give us an opportunity to reach more people."

Though visibility is the main reason behind the move, she says, "We can always use more space."

Johnsen says she's added three employees and is making improvements to make it easier for consignors to sell items at the shop.

The store's new location will open Oct. 2.
