LOUISVILLE (LBF) -- A furniture store will fill the former Babies 'R' Us space on Shelbyville Road.

Michael Broidy, a Value City Furniture spokesman, confirmed on Tuesday that the company will lease the space at 4623 Shelbyville Road.

Broidy said the company hopes to have the store open by early to mid-2019.

The space, according to records with the Jefferson County Property Valuation Administrator, is just more than 37,000 square feet. It is valued at about $4.4 million and is owned by The Homestead Co.

Value City Furniture has three other locations in the Louisville area: 3426 Preston Highway, 9070 Dixie Highway and 945 E. Lewis and Clark Parkway in Clarksville, Ind.
