LEXINGTON, Ky. - Shorty's, the urban market in the Traditional Bank building on West Short Street is closing its doors for good.

General Manager Jonathan Henderson tells the Lexington Herald Leader, the store had a loyal customer base, just not enough to sustain the business financially. 

The store’s inventory will be sold off through Wednesday. 

The departure of Shorty’s leaves the Town Branch Market on East Main Street as the only grocery store left in the downtown area.
