Input on getting rid of a partner

Not sure if this is the right place or not. I co-own a small retail store. I have a business partner and we split the business 50/50. However, I am the only one who put up money for the business. We have been in business for a little over 5 years. I have come to the conclusion that the business cannot sustain 2 people and the fact of the matter is, my business partner doesn't do much for the business. I am trying to explore my options of either getting out (but still getting my investment back) or, somehow getting rid of him. That being said, this is not only a business partner but a close personal friend. I know, i know. Stupid. He has drawn the exact same amount of money as I have over the last 5 years and I haven't gotten any of my investment back yet. I may just have to sit down and tell him we need to dissolve the business which sucks.
