The Emporia store is the fourth for Dunham’s in Kansas and will bring up to 40 new full-time and part-time jobs to town. Nationwide, Dunham’s has over 240 stores in 23 states after the first store was established in Michigan in 1937. It offers footwear; apparel, a hunting, fishing and watersports area; fitness equipment; team sports equipment; and a broad selection of games for both indoor and outdoor enjoyment.
Dunham’s replaces JCPenney, which closed its doors for good in October 2020 after a 35-year run in Emporia.
