VERSAILLES, Ky. (FOX 56) — Big changes are scheduled for an old grocery store in Versailles. The Versailles city council is expecting the building to be transformed into a new entertainment center.

The 76,000-square-foot building within the Lexington Road Plaza in Versailles used to be Kroger. Ever since Kroger relocated across the street, that spot has been vacant. Versailles Mayor Brian Traugott and the Versailles city council saw this as a perfect time to purchase the property before selling it to a tenant who will turn it into an entertainment center with arcade games, an indoor trampoline park, and virtual reality games.

Mayor Traugott hopes the center will inspire the next generation to plant roots in the community, calling Woodford County home for years to come.

“I have a 4-year-old son, so this is going to be something that I look forward to enjoying with my son and wife having a family outing. It’s going to be the most gratifying thing to see people having fun here, staying in Versailles. I can’t say enough about how excited we are, myself, the council, and the community. The feedback has been phenomenal,” Traugott said.
