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."
