Gambinos to open in new retail center

September 10, 2003

Tonganoxie's newest retail development is on target to open in October.

The development will include a Conoco convenience store, a car wash, a liquor store and Gambino's Pizza.

The center is under construction on the north side of U.S. Highway 24-40, just east of the water tower, at the entrance to Stone Creek residential subdivision.

"I think it's about 30 days from opening, assuming everything goes OK," said Steve Kelly, an Overland Park developer who is constructing the building.

Kelly owns 29 acres on the north side of the highway between the water tower and Stone Creek.

The car wash is planned on the south end of the development. Gambino's will occupy a space that's about 1,200 square feet, and the House of Good Spirits will open in about 910 square feet, Kelly said.

The convenience store will include about 3,500 square feet, he added.

"I'm sure the convenience store will open first and the others will follow soon," Kelly said.
