ear X-tacy To Relocate

By Rick HowlettThe founder and owner of Louisville's ear X-tacy Records says he will move his store to a new location on Bardstown Road this summer.John Timmons announced that the nearly 25 year old independent business will relocate about a mile south near Douglass Loop Station. A FedEx facility in the building will remain open.The store has been at its current Highlands location (in photo) for 15 years; Timmons says the new site is a smaller space. "It's going to be one large room..the store right now is three different rooms on different levels and there's a lot of wasted floor space that we're paying for. So this will be downsizing in a way, but all the merchandise that we have now will fit into that space, plus there's a better parking situation there," he said.Timmons announced in February that he could not afford to continue operating the store at its current location.He says the move will take place in July.
