At Thursday night’s Leawood City Council Meeting, a representative from The Barstow School announced plans to purchase the old Hy-Vee at 122nd and State Line. Ashley Stroud, the Director of External Affairs for the school, said they have entered into an agreement to buy the store and they planned to bring the proposal to the council by the end of the summer. Stroud did not outline any specific plans for how the space will be used.
The school, founded in 1884, is on State Line road just south of 435.
“The Leawood Chamber is very pleased that The Barstow School has chosen to invest in Leawood, and we look forward to them transforming this site into a part of the Barstow community.” stated Leawood Chamber President & CEO Kevin Jeffries.
