Openings and Closings

Bob's Sandwich Shop closes in Louisville, to reopen as Bob's Cafe

Bob's Sandwich Shop, 820 Main Street in downtown Louisville, has served the community breakfast, subs and sandwiches for a few years now. But it's time for a remodel -- and a new name.

"Closed for repairs" often means a place has bit the dust, never to return, but there are indications that Bob's will rise again. The phone is still connected, and a message says the shop is closed for cleaning and and maintenance. The timeline is vague: "a few weeks."

When it does reopen, the place will be named Bob's Cafe.
