WICHITA — Bradley Paper owner Frank Clifford sent customers word of a big sale weeks ago but wouldn't return numerous calls for comment about it.
It looked like the store at the Shops at Tallgrass could be going out of business since Clifford was selling most everything, including fixtures.
Now, he's sent customers an e-mail to say he's taking his 5-year-old business online after July 31.
Jerry Jones of Slawson Cos., Clifford's landlord, says Clifford wanted less space.

"We tried to work with them on that," Jones says. "We weren't able to come up with a mutually agreeable . . . solution."
In his e-mail, Clifford references possible future stores and says they will be smaller in size — his current store is 3,500 square feet — and in assortment of merchandise.
Jones says others are now looking at the space.
"We've got a couple of people interested."
