So, as it turns out, Backroom at the Limited at Towne East Square really is closing.
It’s been widely reported that the chain, which Sun Capital Partners purchased in 2007 with a stated intention to improve its business model, has had financial difficulties and has been closing a number of stores.
Last week, the Ohio-based company sent an e-mail to customers saying the Wichita store had closed.
Then, later in the same day, it sent another e-mail to say “Whoops!” and that the store remained in business.
Now, though, a local Limited employee confirms the store’s last day in business will be Saturday.
