Future of Bar Barry Liquors Remains In Question

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - West Lafayette developers are seeing an increase in development along Sagamore Parkway.

Within the past year, Sagamore Parkway has seen the addition of franchises such as Freddy's and Fresh Thyme.

"We've been tracking some of these new developments for quite some time. So we've started to see previously vacant lots filling up,” said West Lafayette’s Deputy Director of Development Erin Easter.

McAlister's Deli and Copper Moon Coffee have recently announced locations coming to Sagamore Parkway.

With both expected to open later this year, Mayor John Dennis said the area has become a target for developers.

"We are in the enviable position of actually being able to tell some developers "No, it won't fit, we don't necessarily have the market for that". Or probably more importantly, maybe not now,” said Dennis.

Dennis said he believes having demand from businesses to move into the area is vital to the city's growth.

"When you take away the manufacturing jobs that are coming here, when you take away some of the research facilities that are coming here, when you look exclusively at retail, it's the market that we provide for these folks that bring them here,” said Dennis.

But Easter said the future of the former Bar Barry Liquors remains in question.

"Currently, a demo permit has been pulled so they're preparing that building for its next phase of life, but no news at the moment,” said Easter.

But Easter says she's hopeful the former building will see new tenants in the future.

"There's certainly more available for development and we are really excited to continue the future of that and see what those locations hold."

Easter says there are also no current plans for the old CVS at the corner of Salisbury and Sagamore.
