WICHITA — In November, Sea Dreams owner Lynne Penny told Have You Heard? she was going to try to keep her store open despite being more than $76,000 behind in state taxes.
"I've been trying to work it out with them for about two years now," she said at the time.
It didn't work.
The state seized Penny's assets and this week closed the 10,000-square-foot store, which sells fish, aquariums and related products.
Never miss a local story.
Sea Dreams has been on East Harry in front of Office This for four of its 10 years in business.
The state says Penny owes more than $500,000 in back taxes.
