WICHITA — Perhaps not surprisingly, the Pier I Imports on West Kellogg will be closing.

A new west-side Pier 1 opened in NewMarket Square at 21st and Maize in late 2011.

"Following a routine review, Pier 1 Imports has made the decision to close the West Kellogg location in late summer 2013," spokeswoman Jennifer Engstrand said in an e-mailed response about the closing.

She said the chain "continually reviews new and existing store locations, to make sure we're operating as efficiently as possible."

Engstrand says the company will try to place its employees from the West Kellogg store at other Pier 1 stores here. She said the chain cares about its shoppers, too.

"We look forward to serving them at our Wichita locations on N. Rock Road and N. Maize Road, as well as other area Pier 1 Imports stores."
