OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Attorneys representing the Metcalf Antique Mall filed for federal bankruptcy protection Monday.

The business lists estimated assets of less than $50,000 and estimated liabilities between $100,000 and $500,000.

The filing comes less than a week after the Kansas Department of Revenue seized assets of the business for failure to pay sales taxes.

Last week's action by KDOR seized all known bank accounts, on-site cash, business inventory as well as personal property belonging to the owner, Andrew Rowland.

Following the seizure, Rowland told KSHB 41 News reporter Megan Abundis that he planned to reopen the next day.

KDOR put signage on the front door last week that read "seized," but it has since been removed.

The doors remained locked as of Tuesday morning, but by 4 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, a call to the store was answered, and the store appeared to be back open. The employee over the phone stated the store would resume normal business hours starting Wednesday.

Customers, employees or others that may have items at the business may contact the agent assigned to this case at 913-942-3090.
