One of the most recognizable landmarks in downtown Wichita Falls will soon be all but vacant.

Tenants of the First Wichita Building, known locally as ‘Big Blue’, were given notice that their leases would not be renewed and they would have to vacate the building by July 31st.

The building’s owner, Rob Womble, confirmed to News Talk 1290 this morning that the building is in fact closing effective August 1st. We spoke with Mr. Womble by phone and he explains why the closure is necessary.
