Crave Beauty Academy co-owner Kim McIntosh says moving a business “is quite a big undertaking.”
“It’s kind of like moving your house times 20.”
She and her husband, Stan, are not only moving their business once this year, but possibly twice.
First, they’re relocating their branch campus in St. Louis to 14858 Manchester Road in Olde Towne Plaza.
Kim McIntosh says it’s a busier area and a “beautiful building” that’s a much more sensible 10,000 square feet, which compares to the almost 20,000 square feet the school has now.
“It’s too huge. It’s just crazy.”
The space used to have a salon. Now, McIntosh says, “We’re rightsizing.”
She plans to open in the new space on February 5th and have a grand opening event February 26th.
Then, McIntosh says, “We’re going to start really diving into Wichita.”
