LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Residents in downtown Louisville may soon have six new places to shop.
According to the Louisville Downtown Development Corporation (LDDC), by next spring a total of six new businesses are expected to open on South Fourth Street between the Seelbach and Brown Hotels.
Six weeks ago Kelly Ramsey opened her chocolate shop called Art Eatables just down 4th Street from the Palace Theatre. "It's going better than expected, which is fantastic," she says.
Kelly's shop is the first of six new, small, retail stores that the city says will open along here by spring.
Ramsey says, "We thought it was a great location for us. It's something unique and with being bourbon; bourbon is Louisville, we thought Kentucky, so it's just a great location to be downtown."
The new stores will also include a men's clothing store and a jewelry store. As Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer explains, "All we are doing is trying to go back to what the roots of the city were south. Fourth Street was the hustle-bustle business center of the community."
The businesses are in line with recommendations made in a merchandising plan for South Fourth Street that was commissioned by the LDDC.
Art Eatables A small-batch bourbon truffle shop.
Block Party Handmade Boutique A collaborative retail, studio and workshop for artists.
Celebrations A Custom invitation and gift shop.
The Leading Man A men's clothing shop.
Les Filles Louisville An artisan jewelry and accessories shop.
Regalo A gift and jewelry shop.
Mayor Greg Fischer says the city was able to land the new businesses because of planning and investment.
"We invested in this key corridor in our current budget because we knew the potential was there," Fischer said. "the common thread with these new stores is that they're uniquely Louisville -- local owners with interesting concepts that help Keep Louisville Weird, and we need to thank these entrepreneurs for stepping up."
The city will invest $500,000 to improve the sidewalks and lighting on Fourth Street. The improvement work was expected to begin in January.
