Wingard Market Gift Shop Expansion to Include More Local Products | Business


Wingard Market in Lexington is arguably best known for its variety of plants, but plenty of whimsical, colorful, and Midland-made items can be found in the property’s gift shop.

The store recently underwent a 600 sq.ft. renovation. expansion. Other products from local and regional retailers will now be included in the Wingard Market Gift Shop, just in time for holiday shopping.

Co-owner Wally Steinhauser purchased an old farmhouse as the basis for the store’s expansion. After renovating the building with new windows, a handicapped ramp and a fresh coat of paint, the farmhouse will almost double the store.

The boutique with southern charm has been around for over 121 years.

“The gift shop is Wingard’s original family home, and it will continue to be the focal point of the business,” said Steinhauser. “As our business continues to grow, the needs of our customers also increase and we want to be able to serve them the best way by offering them more products and a little more convenience while shopping. The house is a symbol of our heritage, and now it is also a sign of our future.

Windgard’s will be hosting a reopening ceremony for the holiday season on November 5 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and November 6 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The celebration will include refreshments and special gifts.
