WICHITA — A decade after opening at Bradley Fair, Sveta Yakubovich is doubling the size of her Sveta’s Skin & Body Therapy.
“We’re still keeping . . . who we are,” she says. “It’s just kind of time to grow.” Part of the reason with the timing is because Zumo Juice will be leaving its space.
Sveta’s has 1,000 square feet and will now have 2,200 square feet with the Zumo space. Construction starts in October, and the business will remain open during the expansion.
The additional space will allow for double bookings for, say, a mother and daughter who might like to schedule appointments at the same time.
“We’re turning down lots of business like that,” Yakubovich says. “That would add, I think, a lot.”
She’ll also have a larger room for training employees and offering clients classes for things such as couples massage.
The reception area also will be larger, and there will be a private relaxation area for clients to use between services.
Spangenberg Phillips Tice is the project architect. Key Construction is the contractor. Sveta’s expansion is one of several new things happening at Bradley Fair.
LBD, etc., a women’s clothing boutique, and Carla’s Love It, a clothing and gift store, recently opened. Newport Grill, a seafood concept by the owners of Yia Yia’s EuroBistro, opens in November.
Yakubovich says a down economy is a great time to expand. “When the economy changes and becomes better, we’ll be ready.”
