UPS Store has a New Home

By Colleen May

With the upcoming International House of Prayer renovations at the Grandview Plaza, the UPS Store of Grandview is moving into a new home, just a hop, skip and a jump from its current location.

An agreement has been made for the UPS Store to re-locate into the building at 1503 Main Street in Grandview.

For those of you familiar with the building at that location, you will recall that it spent many decades as Wilson’s Meat Market and has had a variety of businesses, including Pride Cleaners, through its doors over the years.

“The new Grandview Center will be awesome,” owner Tom Sundquist says, “It’s a fully renovated store, almost double our current square footage. It will be totally remodeled with a fresh new look. Almost everything will be brand new. There will be more room overall, and a much better area workflow for both our customers and staff.

“We will also be upgrading to the UPS format, which is very similar to Mailboxes Etc,” he added.

Tom and his wife, Peggy, bought the store in November of 2004. The center has been in operation as a Mailboxes Etc. and the UPS Store for 18 years at its current location and the Sudquists are excited to see it grow at its new home for many more years to come. “The residents and businesses of Grandview and South Kansas City have been very good to us,” Sundquist said. “My staff and I look forward to serving them at the new location with the same world-class customer service they’ve always come to expect from us.”

The current location will close for the move at noon on Friday, March 26, 2010 and re-open for business on Monday, March 29, 2010 at the new site on Main Street.

“We’re currently working with the Chamber (of Commerce) on a formal grand re-opening later in the Spring or early Summer,” Sundquist said. “We’ll have all kinds of freebies, food and fun, so stay tuned for details!”
