WICHITA — Ultimate Electronics at Bradley Fair is about to undergo remodeling that's so extensive, the store will have to close until about late July.
"We're closing for a complete remodel," says general manager Rob Robinson. "It's going to be from ceiling to floor."
To prepare for the space to be gutted, Robinson says, "We are shipping every single piece of everything out of the store."
Sunday is the store's last day in business until the remodeling is complete.

Along with typical electronics sales, Robinson is selling all the display stands in the store in preparation for the remodeling.
When the store reopens, it will offer expanded merchandise beyond its usual televisions, sound systems and appliances.
There also will be computers, software, electronic games and pool tables.
"What the owner is looking to do is to become actually a home stop," Robinson says.
That's going to necessitate a name change, he says.
"Instead of being Ultimate Electronics, I believe the name at some point is going to be Ultimate."
The goal is to be reopen by the end of July, but it may take until early August. Robinson says he'll let us know.
