Stores in Salina and Clay Center not linked to Dodge City firm By GORDON D. FIEDLER JR. The Salitm Journal The staff and management of Salina's Gibson Discount Center have been busy in recent days reassuring customers the store is on sound financial footing after some news reports erroneously linked it to a troubled Gibson's franchisee in Dodge City. The Dodge City company, Gibson's Discount Center Inc., a 22- store chain, filed Wednesday for Chapter 11 protection. A Salina radio station and a Wichita newspaper erroneously linked the Salina store to the Dodge City firm. The local Gibson's has been privately owned by the Maynard Jones family since 1961. Sons Mark, Scott and Tom also own a Gibson's store in Clay Center, and the family plans to open another store in El Dorado next spring. "We have no debt, we're pretty strong, we've been here 35 years," said Mark Jones. "All the owners live here. We love this town." Maynard Jones and a partner opened a Gibson's store on North Santa Fe in 1961 and moved the store in 1966 to its current location at South and Broadway. The Salina store's only links to the troubled Dodge City company is the name. The Jones family pays it a franchise fee for use of the Gibson name, which the Dodge City firm owns. It also buys some merchandise from the western Kansas company.
