Zoomdweebie's Tea Bar to close next week

WICHITA — Zoomdweebie's Tea Bar is closing, but not due to a lack of business.

"We've got too much business online and with wholesale channels," owner Frank Horbelt says. "We just don't have the time to devote to the retail shop like we should."

He'll be leaving his retail space on East Central and looking for office space to continue his online and wholesale business.

Zoomdweebie's last days in business are Friday and Tuesday.

Horbelt can't say if he'll ever have another retail outlet.

"You never say never, but for right now, it's not in the plans."
