WICHITA — It's a reluctant Nathan Smith who shares 'Til We Meet Again's latest news.
"I don't want to tell you the news," Smith says.
He and business partner Traci Smith-Cone have closed their store at Towne West Square, though they still have three stores elsewhere and plan to add more.
"We are looking to continue to grow and all of that stuff, it's just the Wichita market ... everything slowed down, especially after Christmas," Smith says.
"The Wichita store, like, just fell off the face of the planet. So we had to make some decisions pretty quick."
Smith says he and Smith-Cone are now trying to determine if Towne West was the issue or if it's Wichita in general.
"The traffic's just not there in that mall," Smith says. "The mall's lost a lot of people, and they're continuing to lose more people."
