  • Former E.W. James property lands prospective buyer

    The former E.W. James & Sons Supermarkets property in Elizabethtown soon may have a new owner.

    Hogan Real Estate of Louisville has entered a contract to purchase the building, at West Dixie Avenue and St. John Road, said Hardin McLane, a local Realtor with Coldwell Banker McMahan Co.

    McLane said the deal is contingent upon Hogan finding a lessee within six months. He could not divulge the agreed-upon purchase price because the deal has not been finalized.
