“The economy is definitely not helping out,” he says.
The bigger problem, Osburn says, is Old Town.
His business has “never been what I hoped for.”
The store’s average ticket is good, Osburn says, but he doesn’t see enough customers.
“That’s been the No. 1 problem since Day 1,” he says.
“I don’t get the sense that people out east (or) out west are coming down.”
Even though Old Town boasts a number of unique businesses, Osburn says, he’s not sure most Wichitans even know they’re there.
“I don’t think a lot of Wichitans are using the area or even know what’s down here,” he says.
