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.
