Shopping center expansion now 50 percent leased

Pier 1 Imports, an international retailer offering distinct, casual home furnishings from more than 50 countries, will open a third Wichita location in the spring of 2001 in the Bradley Fair shopping center at 21st Street and Rock Road.

The 10,000­‐square‐foot store will be located next to the Bed Bath & Beyond in the new Bradley Fair South Parkway expansion, said Melissa Cohlmia, spokeswoman for Laham Development Co., the developer of Bradley Fair.

The announcement of Pier 1 as a new tenant brings the 85,000‐square­‐foot South Parkway expansion to more than 50 percent leased.

“Pier 1 will complement the lifestyle center’s already dynamic mix and enhance Bradley Fair as a regional destination,” said Cohlmia. “We give careful consideration to the centers offerings and ambiance. From gifts and apparel to home furnishings, personal products and a diversity of food and dining concepts, Bradley Fair is a complete shopping experience that is relaxed and appealing.”


$1.1 billion in sales

Pier 1, an international retailer headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, has more than 800 stores. The publicly owned company had more than $1.1 billion in sales in 1999. According to the company, the typical Pier 1 customer is a successful, educated, working woman between the ages of 18 and 49.

Opening at the center in early October will be Sveta’s Body Therapy. Owned by Sveta Yakubovich, the shop will be located just south of 21st Street facing Bradley Fair Parkway.

Sveta’s Body Therapy will offer therapeutic massage, acupuncture, facials and a sauna. Services will be available by appointment from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
