Chamber Information

Haysville is a growing community in southeast Sedgwick County. With direct access to the Kansas Turnpike at 71st St. South and to Broadway (US-81), Haysville is a prime area for various industries, manufacturing and service facilities. We are uniquely suited for business growth and growing families!

Our mission is to promote a positive image, support sound development initiatives and enhance the community of Haysville.

This month’s Spotlight member is Elvin Leedy. While Elvin was working at Cessna, he decided to consider what he would do in his retirement years. His first endeavor was a car wash at Seneca and Maple, which became very successful under his leadership. During this time he heard about a storage business in Haysville becoming available and he was intrigued. Elvin purchased Park Avenue Storage on Broadway in May of 2008.

Park Avenue has 49 5 x 15’ units, 8 10 x 15’ units and 19 outdoor spaces. There are security cameras on the gated premises and Elvin recently updated the lighting. One of Elvin’s hobbies is restoring cars and he has three he is currently working on at Park Avenue. When asked what he had learned since taking on a storage business Elvin said he was surprised about people just walking away from their stored property. The downturn in the economy drastically affected his rentals when contracts went unfulfilled and people simply could not get back on their feet.

One of the misconceptions people have about the storage unit business is that when people walk away from their rental agreement and leave behind the contents of their units, glorious treasures are left behind. Elvin explains that this is very far from the truth. Television shows highlight incredible finds in abandoned property, but this has not been Elvin’s experience.

Elvin has been married to Carolyn for 23 years and they have 4 children. He retired from Cessna after 46 years but he has not slowed down. In addition to running Park Avenue, Elvin served 3 years on the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. He is always ready to lend a hand in Chamber activities, including Welcome Back Teachers and the Fall Festival. He has also helped with the Convoy of Hope at Bethel Life Center by providing backpacks to be given to children in need.

Elvin can be reached at 522-3100 and he welcomes you to stop by for a visit at the Park Avenue Storage office, 6731 S. Broadway.

Come, Discover the quality of life in Haysville, Kansas!
