The Strand may not close after all
A historic location in Prestonsburg that is scheduled to close in less than two weeks could remain open after all. The Strand Theater was expected to close its doors for good on January 6th, but the Floyd County Times is reporting that a potential buyer has stepped forward to possibly buy the landmark with plans to keep it open without closing down. The potential buyer has asked not to be identified before the deal is final. If the deal is approved the Strand would remain open on the weekend until March and then return to seven days a week hours of operation.
