A longtime Fan fixture turned into another vacant storefront in February.

After being open for 33 years, Main Art closed its doors for good and is being shopped around by Jim Ashby of Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer.

The store, which opened in 1980, is attracting some interest from restaurants, Ashby said.

The space is across from Baja Bean Co. and Bombolini at 1537 W. Main St.

The area has seen some changes in recent months.

Mulligan’s Sports Grille, two blocks east, shut down and will be resurrected this spring as a new concept by Baja Bean owner Ron Morse. And Ry Marchant’s Six Burner was taken over by Emilia Sparatta and Joe Sparatta, who opened Heritage.
