WICHITA — A couple of days after celebrating his 40th year in business, J.R. Koontz has put his building – not his J.R. Koontz Flowers – up for sale.

"I'm downsizing," Koontz says.

"It's been an increasing struggle for us as well as other businesses."

Koontz bought the 10,000-square-foot building at 633 N. Broadway in 2003. The building was built as a house and eventually became a funeral home.

He says it's a "fabulous" space but that he wants "to get out from underneath this."

Koontz adds that he wants "someone to love it as much as we do because it's a great facility."

He says after selling the building, he'll take care of debts and relocate.

"I have an idea where I'd like to go."
