Business

  • Restaurant serving much more than meals

    Since July, Joseph Lamb has been running a small restaurant on Main Street.

    The establishment, located at 1021 Main, may seen ordinary at first, but 1021 Park’s Place serves not only the usual patron, but also those who cannot pay for their meals, said Lamb.

    “I don’t just feed them, I try to meet their needs, whatever they might be,” he said.

    “So far, I’ve got twenty-two people off the streets.”

  • Feed store relocates

    For the second time in two years, a longtime equine feed store is undergoing a major change in moving to a new location.

    Excel Equine will move into its new location Monday, leaving its home of 40 plus years on Kentucky Street to 7th Street.

    Although the store will relocate, going to the intersection of 7th Street and Old Eminence Pike, right across from the Shelby County Detention Center, its products and services will stay the same, said store employee Megan Klein.

  • Delight-ful new business

     When one door closes another opens. So goes the fate of downtown Shelbyville recently. 

    And with the closure of several other storefronts on Main Street, many new businesses have followed behind with new openings.

    Shelby County Automotive is an auto and truck parts retailer with locations in LaGrange, Shelbyville, Frankfort, Georgetown, Lexington, Winchester and Danville.  They are headquartered in Shelby County with the NAPA store at 114 Main Street in Shelbyville.

  • Company celebrating 50 years

    A Shelbyville company that can trace its roots back to the early days of the nation will Tuesday celebrate 50 years at its local location.

    “The plant, in 1967, was part of Revere Copper and Brass, which was actually founded by Paul Revere,” said John Wherry, a former CEO who is a board member of Revere Packaging.

  • Paving the way to success

    Bobby Hudson, president and CEO of the Shelby County Industrial and Development Foundation, still has another year to go before he retires next December, but he plans to spend 2018 grooming his replacement to take his place.

  • Pet store coming to Shelbyville

    Officials at Village Plaza say they are excited about a new pet store that will move into the now vacant space formerly occupied by Hibbert Sports. 

    "It's a really cool store," said Jerry Karem, owner of Village Plaza, of Petsense, a chain retail outlet store found in outlet malls and rural markets across the country. 

    Karem said that Petsense specializes in pet supplies and pet services, but does not sell dogs or cats. 

  • Former bingo hall gets facelift

    You may have noticed the former bowling alley and bingo hall on Midland Trail getting a touch up lately. The building, which has been vacant for nearly a year is now sporting a fresh coat of paint and even more improvements on the inside.

    That’s because there has been a lot of interest lately from potential buyers, said realtor Larry Rogers, who owns the building along with Barbara Hamilton.

  • Biagi’s says goodbye

    For nearly a century, business at Biagi’s Appliance has been good. But as they say, all good things must come to an end.

    So as brothers Steve and Robert Biagi wrap up the store’s 90th anniversary, they are preparing to close the doors on the family business.

    Annibale Biagi established Biagi’s Appliances in downtown Shelbyville in 1927.  The business passed through the hands of their grandfather to their father, Vincent, and uncle, Hugh, before the brother’s joined them at the helm in 1993.
