  • New Main Street business will cater to kids

    With piles of unassembled playground parts piled against the walls, the developing business at 525 Main Street in Shelbyville may not seem like much now.  But in the coming weeks, that building will become the headquarters for laughing, excited children, as Kaleidoscopes, a new indoor play park, is unveiled.

    With three stories, the building will encompass a rock wall, a Lego room and numerous play areas.

    “There’s going to be huge playground structures, different things like that around here,” said manager Leslie Shoulders.

  • Hooper Station to get commercial development

    Shelbyville is making room for nine new businesses on Hooper Station and Mount Eden roads. But some nearby residents are not so interested in the change.

    Several outspoken and frustrated residents expressed their disdain for the future development proposed to the Triple S Planning and Zoning Commission Tuesday that includes nine new lots and three new streets adjacent to the Twin Springs subdivision.

    Kevin Young, a principal for Land Design and Development, said he had been working with the property owner for nearly a decade on the appropriate use of the land.

  • McKinley’s not ready to let go

    Like other parents of a 19-year-old, Teresa and Skip McKinley say they are having a hard time letting their baby go.  Their child, however, is a small restaurant at 615 Main Street that the couple established together, McKinley’s Bread Shop and Deli.

    “I like to say that we conceived McKinley’s, gave birth to it and nurtured it,” Teresa McKinley said.

    But with nearly two-decades of owning and operating the shop under their belt, the couple reluctantly admits they need to retire.

  • A target audience

    If you’re into bow hunting and want a more realistic target practice experience than just aiming for the traditional bull’s eye, you’re in luck.

    Tree Shadow Outfitters, located in Midland Shopping Center next to the former Tractor Supply location, may have just what you’re looking for. Established last year in Village Plaza, the business relocated its indoor shooting range to the former Winn Dixie building in order to get more space, said David Hinds, who owns the business along with his daughter, Jeanette.

  • Former bank building is on the block

    A building that has played a major role in Shelbyville’s downtown streetscape for nearly a century and a half is still going strong, although it is up for sale.

    The 144-year old building located on the corner of 6th and Main streets, currently houses an engineering firm, Biagi, Chance, Cummins, London, Titzer, Inc. Consulting Engineers.

    Realtor Steve Osowicz with Larry Rogers Coldwell Banker said the asking price for the building is $625,000 to $725,000 and that so far, there has been no buyer.

  • Getting hitched

    Shelby County, long recognized as the Saddlebred Capital of the World, is working on gaining still another distinction – it’s a great place to get married.

    There are at least a half dozen locations in Shelby County – most of them farms – that offer venues in which to hold a wedding.

  • Revamped CUB location reopens

    One of Shelbyville’s Citizens Union Bank branches has a brand new look, and Monday opened up for business.

    Construction began on the CUB branch inside the Shelbyville Walmart on June 19, and workers put the finishing touches on this weekend. But even better than the new modern look, the transformation has given the bank customers more space, actually allowing them to walk into the bank instead of standing out in the aisle of the store.

  • Fresh family fun

    The Shelby County Farmers Market will host a Customer Appreciation Day Saturday, Aug. 8, at the Shelby County Fairgrounds on U.S. 60 and Ky. 53.

    Farmer’s market president Lea Miller said they are holding the event to show their gratitude to their loyal customers.

    “We decided to have a Customer Appreciation Day for our customers because we have so many that come in regularly on Wednesdays and our Saturdays, so we wanted to show our appreciation to them,” she said.

  • Citizens Union branch to open Monday

    One of Shelbyville’s Citizens Union Bank branches has a brand new look, and come Monday, will open up for business.

    Construction began on the CUB branch inside the Shelbyville Walmart on June 19, and today, workers are adding the finishing touches. But even better than the new modern look, the transformation will give bank customers more space to do their banking, actually allowing them to walk into the bank instead of standing out in the aisle of the store.
