Midwest Hearing Aids is reaching out to its customers.

The company has been in business since 1948 at 1930 S. Broadway Ave., but it has recently undertaken some rapid expansion.

The company has opened small offices at 6160 E. 21st St. in November and at 10607 W. Maple St. last week.

Delbert Brewster bought the company in the late '50s. It is now largely owned by his son, Terry Brewster. Terry Brewster's brothers, Rob and Ron Brewster, also work there.

The company opened five offices, including the two in Wichita, in the past year, bringing its total to 21 around the state. The company also has motor homes circulating throughout Kansas and beyond giving hearing tests.

"Part of the benefit of these small offices is so customers can stay local rather than go to a larger town," said Ed Clausen.

The company opened the east and west Wichita offices to broaden its presence in the market, Clausen said.

"We want to be like Pizza Hut," Terry Brewster said. "We try to make it almost impossible not to do business with us."

For walk-ins, the west side location is open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday and the east location is open from 9 a.m. to 4:40 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday. But appointments will handled five days a week at any location.

Reach the east-side office at 684-2411. Reach the west side office at 682-2411.

Greg Buss of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal.
