The new Mini Marketplace of Wichita Presbyterian Manor is open! Several residents came to celebrate this much anticipated milestone at our grand opening April 17.

Open to both residents and staff, this is a go-to shop for life’s little emergencies, perhaps when a resident runs out of eggs, milk or toilet paper. It’s also a convenient place to grab a quick drink or snack. The shop carries items such as greeting cards, gum, sweet and savory snacks, soda, juice, tissue and toiletries, for those times when you just can’t get away to the grocery store.

The Mini Marketplace is staffed by 14 resident volunteers who work two to three times a month with a buddy. We are anxious and excited to see how the Presbyterian Manor community takes advantage of this amenity in the coming months.

Hours are noon-2 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and 2-4 p.m. Sundays; the shop is closed on holidays. All purchases are cash only (small bills and loose change preferred).

Be sure to stop by and support the store with your purchase! Interested in volunteering? Please see a member of Life Enrichment Team to be added to the list.
