Tuesday, May 15, marked the grand opening of Keeneland Mercantile in Lexington’s new downtown City Center. The store features an array of personal, household and consumable items crafted by artisans from throughout the South.
“Keeneland’s dedication to heritage and culture is at the heart of Keeneland Mercantile, which establishes a powerful downtown presence for Thoroughbred racing,” Keeneland Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Vince Gabbert said. “The tradition of racing, the nod to our roots in the iconic Keeneland sycamore tree featured in the Keeneland Mercantile brand and our commitment to quality and community all converge to create this new retail destination.”
Keeneland Director of Retail Kyle Cassin added, “Keeneland Mercantile reflects the best of what our region, tradition, and our craftsmen have to offer. It’s an exciting opportunity for Keeneland to further elevate the guest experience and connect with new racing fans.”
Keeneland Mercantile is located on the ground level of The Offices at City Center at the intersection of Main and Limestone Streets. The shop is open Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
