WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Business at a Wichita Falls shopping center is booming, leading many new stores to open up shop.
Just a few years ago Parker Square was having trouble attracting business owners to the area.
But that has changed.
Some of the new spots include Frank and Joe's Coffee Shop, Heff's Burgers, Sewn Boutique and Gold's Gym.
Many are encouraged by the positive movement in the area.
    "We think that shopping center is going to continue to grow," Henry Florsheim, President of the Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce, said. "It doesn't have much in the way of vacancies right now. And in the coming months they will have even less."
    "We love being over here in Parker Square," Darby Smith, an Employee at Sewn, said. "Our neighbors are great. We love the visibility we have and we love being in the premiere shopping center of Wichita Falls."
Florsheim also said the businesses moving in are advertising the right way, leading to the increase in shoppers.
He also believes more movement is in store for Parker Square.
