We caught word this weekend that Urban Outfitters is again looking to open a store on Bardstown Road, but Insider Louisville beat us to the break. While a previous deal fell through a couple years ago for space at a still-empty strip mall at Bardstown Road and Grinstead Drive and apparently totally ignoring the old ear X-tacy space, the hip clothing company is now looking for space currently occupied by Blockbuster Video at 1140 Bardstown Road—next door to Highland Coffee (how hip can one block get?).
We couldn’t confirm the fate of the Blockbuster, but the company was recently bought by Dish Network after filing for bankruptcy last year, so it seems like the space could be in limbo. Philadelphia-based Urban Outfitters also owns several other store concepts including Anthropologie.
