Susan Barkley used to visit a certain party store when her daughter raced at Spartan Speedway in Mason
years ago, and it always struck her fancy.
“We used to come in here and I thought it would be a fun place to own one day,” says Barkley.
Now she has the chance to find out just how much fun it is, as Barkely recently celebrated the grand opening of Git Some Party Store on North Cedar, that very same store she used to dream of owning. Barkley now offers Broasted Chicken and a deli at the new 2,000 square foot store.
“I have always loved Broasted Chicken,” Barkley says. “There hasn’t been a chicken place in this area since for awhile, so I thought people would like that.”
Barkley hopes to add ice cream and liquor sales to her inventory. Currently, the store is operated by Barkley, her family and one employee. The store has only been open for a few weeks, but it’s already living up to Barkley’s expectations.
“It’s been a lot of fun,” she says. “We’re just going to continue to move forward and provide good food for everybody.”
