Two new business are going to be coming to Eudora in the coming days and weeks.
Anita Mitts, a reading and math teacher in the Eudora School District, will be opening up a gift shop in downtown Eudora at 714 Main Street. The Filling Station will be selling decor for home and office, personal gifts,
candles, appetizer packages, Christmas decorations, Christmas gifts, party supplies, coffee and books.
“I love downtown,” Mitts said. “And i’ve always wanted to own a bookstore and there is nowhere to buy affordable gifts in town like this.”
Mitts stated how she loves the feel of a vibrant downtown community and wants to help recreate that in Eudora. For the remainder of the year, The Filling Station will be open Wednesday through Friday from 12 PM to 7 PM, Saturday from 10 to 5 and Sunday Noon to 5. While the store opens up on Thursday, the official Grand Opening will be on Wednesday, November 9.
Also next week, on November 11, Rebel Roxie’s boutique will open in Eudora. Owners Kristi Mossberg and Sandy Clark have owned the business for nearly 10 years and have operated it at the Mall of the Great Plains in Olathe prior to moving the business to Eudora.
“Ive lived here for 30 years,” Mossberg said. “This is my hometown and since we have clients in both Lawrence and Kansas City, it makes perfect sense for us to be here.”
Rebel Roxie’s will offer hand made crafts and art. Mossberg stated that she uses vendors and artists within 250 miles of Eudora and buys directly from the artists and craft makers. Rebel Roxie’s will be located at 101 W. 10th in part of the space previously occupied by Byrne’s Pharmacy. They will be open from 9 AM to 6 PM Tuesday through Saturday for the remainder of the year.
