Keeneland will open a retail shop called Keeneland Mercantile in the $200 million City Center development, the Thoroughbred track and auction house announced.

Keeneland Mercantile will open March 1, 2019. It will share space with a new Starbucks facing Main Street on the ground level of the Offices at City Center. The City Center development is located at the intersection of Main and Limestone streets.

City Center, formerly known as CentrePointe, will include a 700-car underground parking garage, Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse, condominium penthouses, a 230-room Marriott Hotel and a 120-suite Residence Inn with an all-season rooftop bar.

The Keeneland Mercantile store “will offer a collection of regionally made and locally sourced goods curated by Keeneland and become a shopping destination for locals and visitors to Lexington,” Keeneland vice president and chief operating officer Vince Gabbert said, in a news release.

In the same statement, City Center developer Dudley Webb said, “Keeneland quality is known the world over and is synonymous with Lexington and the Bluegrass area. ... Keeneland Mercantile is an outstanding addition to our tenant mix and we welcome them to the City Center development.”
