A variety of events hosted in Hays also has continued to be a strong pull for visitors, said Jana Jordan, executive director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau. Sports fans have proven to be among the most loyal customers, she said.
But even on weekends between events, Hays has continued to attract many out-of-town shoppers, she said.
"That's one of the nice things about being one of the largest communities in northwest Kansas," Jordan said.

"Again, they're a private business, and we have very little control over how they conduct their business," said Jana Jordan, director of the Hays CVB.

Jana Jordan was glad she got a chance to be with Robert "BoB" Templeton one last time.
Jordan, the director of the Hays Convention and Visitors Bureau, for many years had an office in the same building as Templeton, at the time the executive director of the Hays Area Chamber of Commerce. They often would sit together in the morning to have coffee.
But last week, Jordan visited Templeton shortly before his death. Templeton died Thursday at 80.
Memorial services will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Trinity Lutheran Church.
"Here in the last few days of his life, I was very blessed to be able to sit with him the evening before he passed away," Jordan said.
Templeton's effervescent personality was contagious, Jordan said.
"He was just always upbeat," Jordan said.
Jordan said she always enjoyed talking to Templeton over those morning coffees.
"It was nice to sit and visit with him," she said. "If you were feeling a little down, he would get you going again."
When Jordan was with Templeton for the final time last week, he still was cracking jokes, she said.
"That was just a very precious thing for me, to be able to sit and reminisce with him," Jordan said.

Jana Jordan, director of the Hays Convention and Visitors Bureau, said the number of convention visitors has fallen by nearly half during the past eight or nine years to approximately 6,000.
Jordan said there have been complaints about a current site hosting conventions, the Hays Ambassador Hotel and Conference Center at 3603 Vine -- formerly the Ramada Inn.
The hotel has a 2.6 of 5 stars guest rating on Common guest reviews criticize the smell of cigarette smoke in rooms, mold, the lukewarm hot tub and excessive noise.
Jordan said a convention center would make Hays a "northwest Kansas destination" for many travelers rather than a stop along Interstate 70. Although Dodge City's events center and casino might be attractive to convention groups, the culture in Hays is a compelling draw, she said.
"Once the people have been there, then they're willing to look at something else and they can remember how unique their visit was from three or four years ago, and think of coming back to Hays," Jordan said.
The Volga German heritage, Wild West history and downtown area define the local experience, she said.
No market research has been done to identify potential conventions, but the CVB has close ties to many groups.
"We know the market," Jordan said.
"Our meat and potatoes really has been in the pas,t and will be again, to target groups from that 150 to 250, even 300 (range)," Jordan said.
