Frequenters of the popular shopping center at 69th Street and Mission Road likely noticed several big changes in 2020 — and can expect to see even more in 2021.

A local staple, the Shops of Prairie Village at 6920 Mission Road is home to a number of eateries, small shops, salons and more. But in 2020 several storefronts closed up shop for good, making way for new tenants in 2021.
