Origins at Bradley Fair closes; deal for a new tenant is close

WICHITA — The Origins store at Bradley Fair has closed.

No one with the chain’s corporate office returned calls for comment, but an employee at the Origins counter at Towne East Square says the company may have new guidelines for keeping freestanding Origins stores open.

As Sephora and other makeup and skin care chains gravitate to locations outside of department stores, it appears Origins may be going the other way.

A representative with Laham Development, the developer of Bradley Fair, says a new deal is close for the 1,400 square feet that Origins left this week.
