Staci McPhail is the sole owner of Main Street T’s. Having grown up in Ashland, Staci and her husband Tyson of 19 years, jumped at the opportunity to move back home in July of 2015. They, along with their sons Kash and Lathan, were excited to be closer to their family and the town they loved. While Tyson spent many summers growing up working for David Bouziden in Ashland, he has also worked for Bouziden Brothers out of Alva, OK for over 20 years. Tyson took over managing the former Harper Ranch for Bouziden Brothers in Sitka, and Staci continued to commute daily to Alva. We asked Staci why she decided to get into the custom printing business and she said “I had the opportunity to buy into the T-shirt shop a year after we moved here, when my mother-in-law was looking for a new partner. Together we started the Shirt Shack. After 3.5 years, I was ready to end my daily commute and make custom printing my full-time job. I had the opportunity to move the business to this amazing location on Main Street and couldn’t be happier about my choice to open up a store front in the heart of town.”
If you haven’t been by the shop, make sure to stop in and check it out! Staci has always done a great job and is always open to any ideas you may have. At Main Street T’s you can get personalized T-shirts, hats, decals, and koozies so don’t wait and give Staci a call at (620)635-0950 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you Staci for bringing your business to our community and to Main Street! We wish nothing but the best for you and hope you continue to grow!

On Friday April 26th, we had the honor of doing another ribbon cutting for Nicole Brown who opened Tan Lines By Nicole at 119 W 8th St. Nicole does spray tans at the shop, and has the mobile equipment to travel to any location as well.
Nicole used to tan in a tanning bed until she had a scare. This inspired Nicole to start spray tanning and provide a service much safer than laying in a bed. She has been spray tanning people for 2 years now and since then she has upgraded her equipment to professional grade giving her the opportunity to grow her business. Her plans for 2020 is to take a class to become a master tanner so she can expand her services with shadowing and contouring as well. Nicole enjoys doing spray tans and is happy to provide a safer service for people who like to tan.
If you would like to book a spray tan today call Nicole at (620)635-0664
Introducing one of the new businesses in town: The Bunk House! The business is owned by Larry, Candy, & Monti Park, of Ashland, KS. On March 23, 2019, The Bunk House had an open house and the Chamber held a ribbon cutting ceremony for their grand opening! We are so excited to have them and thank them for providing another great place to stay for visitors when visiting Ashland!
“In April of 2018, Larry came home and told me (Candy) he was going to go to church more! He had bought the Assembly of God Church. Our son, Monti, was retiring from the Air Force after 20 years and needed a place to live. Larry had the idea for Monti to live in the basement of the church, which had three bedrooms (classrooms), a full kitchen, and living room. We added a utility room and full bath. We felt Ashland needed more motel rooms so we changed the ground floor into four rooms with bathrooms to rent. As of March 2019, the Bunk House was born and we are in business!!”- Larry, Candy, & Monti Park

New home for Ashland Chiropractic
We had the honor of doing a ribbon cutting for the re-opening of Ashland Chiropractic. Dr. Dustin McPhail moved his office to the old Ashland Health Clinic building, which he purchased not long ago. Along with McPhail, Kelsey Rollman moved her massage therapy to the new office as well. To add to the excitement, the duo is adding another service to the office.

Dustin graduated from Ashland Jr/Sr High School in 2003. He went on to Washburn University and pursued a degree in Sports Medicine – Bachelor of Science in 2007. After graduating from Washburn University, he enrolled at Cleveland University where he earned his Doctorate Degree in Chiropractic in 2012. After obtaining his Doctorate in Chiropractic he took an associate position in West Helena, Arkansas after being contacted from a doctor who was injured in a hunting accident and was needing a fill in doctor until he was able to start treating again. In the fall of 2012, Dustin, made the move to Arkansas where he lived in the basement of this doctor’s house; becoming almost family with his wife and 2 children. They took him in as one of their own and was taught the ins and outs of chiropractic. When his time was coming to an end in Arkansas; Lance (chiropractor) told Dustin “I am not going to tell you where to go or how to practice; but follow your heart and hang your shingle once.” Dustin’s heart lead him back to Ashland, Kansas. Dustin has never once regretted the move to Ashland; he said it was honestly the best decision of his life. He has been practicing in Ashland for almost 6 years; he met his wife here and now has 3 amazing children. He is committed to making this community better in any way, shape or form and said our community is unique and Ashland-nites strive to be better.
