Gardner Kansas History

Moonlight CommonsThe Bristol Groupe was recruited by Mayor Carol Lehman to bring Gardner Development and shopping to the next level. 

Mayor Lehman had seen our properties in Lawrence Kansas and she took a risk and asked us to take a look at Gardner to put our next shopping center.

At first, we were resistant Gardner, was a sleepy town that had not had a ton of investment. Mayor Lehman took us on a tour that lasted a couple of hours and we fell in love with the area. We started to look for sites and found our location on Moonlight Road.


Gardner was the location where the Oregon Trail and the Santa Fe divided many pioneers crossed through the area. It was founded

as a Freestate community largely populated by people from Massachusets who came to make sure that Kansas remained free.

Gardner has had a few famous people that came from the area, one of note is Ray McIntire an engineer who graduated from the University of Kansas. Born in Gardner, in 1918 he later went to work for Dow Chemical and invented polystyrene, commonly called Styrofoam.

Bubba Starling a number one draft pick by the Royals from Gardner KS graduated as a star athlete from GEHS. John Means is another MLB player that played with Bubba and is now a pitcher for the Orioles. Gardner is very proud of these young men.

The Bristol Groupe Retail Development & Leasing

Moonlight Commons is an all masonry building that was a catalyst for growth in the Gardner, KS area. When we broke ground in 2004, there was no Wal-Mart, nor many other commercial buildings in the area.

After college, John Cosentino opened the Price Chopper, and that was the main shopping center until Moonlight Commons opened in 2005. Others came and started projects after The Bristol Groupe acted as a catalyst by making a significant commitment bringing Moonlight Commons a big investment in Gardner’s future.

Today Moonlight Commons still looks like it is brand new. The Bristol Groupe develops, owns, and manages all of its retail properties. One of our sayings is no one cares like the owners.

When Edward W. Rolfs came to the Central National Bank in 1915, he began an association with the bank that continues today for the Rolfs family. E.W. Rolfs served as bank president from July 15, 1959 until January of 1967 when his son, E.J. Rolfs, took over as president. E.C. Rolfs, son of E.J., assumed the responsibility of President and CEO in 1993 until 2016 when niece Sara Girard accepted the role of President. Girard makes the fourth generation of the Rolfs family to work and provide leadership for the bank’s day-to-day operations.

Central National Bank has grown from having one location in Junction City, Kansas, to become one of the states’ strongest banks, with branches in 24 communities. This growth in size has allowed Central National Bank to provide a wide array of valuable products and services that are delivered with leading technology, such as online banking, convenient mobile apps and the introduction of Interactive Teller Machines in 2017.

Moonlight Liquor opened up in the fall of 2005 as Gardner Kansas’s largest liquor store in the new Moonlight Commons Shopping Center. Immediately the people of Gardner asked about the new liquor store near me and they welcomed us and shopped for their beer wine and spirits.

The Founder of Moonlight Liquor was a landscape architect and decided to sell the store to the Spinello family. Joe and Jamie took the store from mostly selling beer to becoming a very large supplier of fine wine and premium liquor. The did this through education and wine tastings. It was so successful they expanded from 3,600 square feet to 5,400 s.f. 

Through hard work and great customer service they expanded one more time to 7,200 square feet to create Gardner’s Liquor Superstore.

The owners and staff at Electric Sun Tanning Salons are dedicated to exceeding customers’ expectations. Offering outstanding customer service with state of the art tanning equipment. We provide the best indoor tanning lotions in the industry by Designer Skin.

Our objective is to educate our customers about tanning smart & the importance of avoiding sunburn. Secondly, we offer clean and sanitary  tanning salons that can be used for therapeutic and cosmetic purposes.

At Electric Sun Tanning Salons, our staff understands that the quality of light you receive while tanning can be improved through regular cleaning of the lamps and acrylics. (Like your television screen, dust builds up and acts as a block for the light to penetrate the acrylic.) A lot of salons take their lamps out only once and that is to replace them. We re-lamp our beds on a regular basis as well as deep clean so you receive the BEST QUALITY of tanning at all times.

The type of bulbs we equip our tanning units with are of the very highest quality available and will deliver more bronzing results to your skin.   This results in a healthier tan that simply does not fade as fast.
