WICHITA — When David Cortez closed his west-side Baskin-Robbins for the winter, he said it was more economically feasible to temporarily close and then reopen this spring.

He's now closed his east-side Baskin-Robbins as well, and it doesn't look like he'll be reopening either store. That doesn't mean the Baskin-Robbins stores will stay out of business, though.

"We're going to be ...assessing where we go with them, whether we permanently close ... or whether we reopen the stores," says Louis Adams of Memphis-based Klinke Bros. Ice Cream, which is the area franchisor.

"We're still just going through that," Adams says.

He says he expects there will be a decision by late next week and will let us know.

Cortez didn't return calls for comment.
