Dolls Market Sale Pending — And We’re Back

According to today’s Courier-Journal, the former Dolls Market on Brownsboro Road will soon have a new owner:

An out-of-town developer has a contract to buy the former Doll’s Market building and parking lot on Brownsboro Road for a retail use, and a closing is expected by the end of the year, real estate agent Paul Grisanti said.

The building could be one store or perhaps three smaller ones, but Grisanti said he could not disclose details because of a confidentiality agreement. Grisanti is selling the property for the owners, the Charles F. Bauer family.

The developer interested in the Doll’s building has 53 “units” in 13 states, and this would be the first store in Kentucky, Grisanti said. “It’s something people in that area will most likely appreciate,” he said.

We figured we’d google “53 stores 13 states retail” to see if there we could find any hints, but the only relevant result was the Wikipedia entry for American Signature, the parent company of Value City. Not that exciting, we know. Perhaps someone out there has a tip they can share with us? Anyway, it will be good for that stretch of Brownsboro Road to have more robust retail again. Now if only they can get a good restaurant back in the old Azalea space…

In other not-really-news news, we’re restarting State of the Commonwealth on a most-likely sporadic basis, so we hope you enjoy it. Work schedules now allow for some time to dedicate to SotC, which we haven’t updated since 2008. We’ve unfortunately missed out on a lot of changes, some positive and some otherwise, around Louisville and Kentucky in the past three years, and we regret that. But hopefully we can jump back into the swing of things! Thanks for reading.
