There’s another vacant retail spot downtown. This time, Lynn Imaging has abandoned its location at Seventh Street and Market Street in favor of the Bluegrass Industrial Park. The retail outlet was in one of those hard-to-lease parking garages, so don’t expect to see something else move in soon. Unless the garage is in an extremely high-pedestrian-traffic area like adjacent to the convention center (this one’s not) or you have an institution ready to take the space for cheap (see the Cressman Center), garage retail in Louisville has proven stagnant even in good economic times.
The copy shop closed its doors on October 24th and expects to open its new store on November 3rd. This means the only other copy shop in the central business district west of 2nd Street is the Kinko’s on Market Street, over four blocks away. We’re sorry to see Lynn Imaging go as it’s just one more basic service you will have to walk farther for. Incidentally, Lynn Imaging is also moving their Lexington store: from the suburbs into downtown Lexington on Vine Street.
