Business

  • Decades of devotion

    It’s not too often that you see a successful business voluntarily close its doors.

    But after 36 years, Moore’s Automotive Service Center on at 2000 Midland Trail will do just that at the end of the year.

    That’s because its owners, brothers Glen and Dennis Moore, are retiring.

  • Cox’s planning move to Zaxby’s location

    A Shelbyville smoking outlet is planning to relocate soon to another location on Midland Trail.

    Cox’s Smoker’s Outlet, currently located in Village Plaza shopping center, will soon move to the building that now houses Zaxby’s restaurant, about a mile west of its current location.

    Steve Grantz, co-owner of Cox’s, said he is not sure when the move will take place.

  • Farming for Christmas

    On Thanksgiving Day, Ron Stella will be camped out on the Christmas tree farm he operates with Vivek Sarin, waiting for the first customers of the season.

    Well, not exactly the first, as the very first tree cut from the Shelby Christmas Tree Farm was taken down on Monday and will grace the grounds of the Governor’s Mansion in Frankfort, said Sarin.

  • Zaxby’s expanding its reach

    Shelby residents may feel like they are experiencing a case of déjàvu right now as they pass by Zaxby’s buildings all across the county.  Simpsonville welcomed the chicken restaurant Monday with the first new location’s grand opening.  Meanwhile, the Shelbyville store is gearing up for its transition to the new site, which is currently under construction adjacent to CVS Pharmacy on the Shelbyville Bypass.

  • New board member at Centro Latino

    Dan Feeser has come on board as Centro Latino’s newest board member.

    Feeser, who is director of engineering/innovation for Diageo North America, relocated to Shelbyville for the new Bulleit Distillery project on Benson Pike.

    He said that he and his wife have enjoyed living in Shelbyville so much that he has decided to retire here after completing this year’s Leadership Shelby program, giving him a chance to redirect his energy into making Shelby County an even better place to live.

  • Leadership Shelby under new leadership

    For the first time in 15 years, Leadership Shelby has a new person at the helm that has been a board member of the organization since graduating from the program herself in 2012.

    MaryAnn Gramig took over as executive director in July, replacing longtime director Rosemary Riggs who retired the previous month.

    “It’s been going great so far,” she said, adding that Riggs has since provided some invaluable advice.

  • Woodworking Maniak to open on Main

    The arguably perfect details accompanied by the vibrant colors and intricate designs of Timothy Babb’s handcrafted woodworkings are best appreciated in person. And tomorrow that opportunity to be afforded to the community when Babb officially opens the doors to his first storefront for his business, The Woodworking Maniak, at 545 Main Street.

  • Mulberry peaches on tap

    Louisville based Against the Grain Brewery, along with Ethereal Brewing of Lexington, teamed up with Shelby County’s Mulberry Orchard to introduce the first limited edition brew in their Kentucky Proud Beer Series.

    Using peaches from the local farm, the brewery team brewed a sour peach saison they have named Peach Better Have My Money.

  • New McDonald’s opens in Simpsonville

    Shelby County’s newest McDonald’s restaurant – the county’s 4th – opened with a bang Thursday in Simpsonville, with lots of promotions and a lot of enthusiasm from employees.

    “We’re very excited; we’re getting everything ready to open first thing in the morning,” said Chef Manager Kenny King Wednesday afternoon.

    The new restaurant, owned by Frank Ward, is located at 1101 Buck Creek Road at the I-64 interchange.

  • Wieland is Chamber’s new director

    The Shelby County Chamber of Commerce has a new face at the helm for the first time in more than a decade.

    John Wieland began as the new executive director on Monday, replacing longtime director Shelley Goodwin, who stepped down in mid-August after 14 years to take a new role as workforce development coordinator.
