Two new businesses are attracting quite a bit of attention in Wichita.Cabela'sopened at K-96 and Greenwich Wednesday. Also, crowds camped out waiting for the opening of the new Chick-fil-A at Central and Rock Road.
By 6 o'clock this morning the restaurant's owner counted about 200 people out in their parking lot. But only 100 were selected to stay and camp out to win a free year of food.
"We took leave off of work to come out here. We took days out of our own leave just cuz Chick- fill-A's amazing," said Chick-fill-A fan Doug Livingston.
People like Livingston prompted the restaurant's owner to work with police on traffic issues when it officially opens Thursday.
WhenCabela'sdid open, the line was stretched into the parking lot. Crowds came to see what the store has to offer. It includes 250 full body animal mounts, including polar, grizzly and black bears. A stream runs through the mountain area with a stocked aquarium at the base. It will also have a gun library, conference room and fudge shop.
The City of Wichita provided some incentives forCabela'sto come to town. You'll pay an extra sales tax when you shop there to cover the community improvement district.
