Times are strange right now and local businesses are having to get creative with their service options in order to get their products to you.
We love our Wichita community and all of the unique, fun and tasty companies that make our town special. We wanted to find a way to help them (and you!) out so we have made a list of local businesses that you can support with online purchases, phone orders, or drive-through. We’ve listed them alphabetically to make it easier to find.
