Buybuy Baby, a baby goods retailer, has opened inside the former Circuit City store at Hamburg. The 33,000-square-foot store is a direct competitor to nearby Babies R Us, which has a second Lexington store inside the Toys R Us on Nicholasville Road.
The Hamburg location is Buybuy Baby's first Kentucky location. The chain, a subsidiary of Bed Bath & Beyond, operates in 20 states. The store's hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays.
The Circuit City spot has been vacant since March 2009, when the chain's bankruptcy forced stores to close.
