Simpsonville, KY – Parking lots weren’t open until about 9 a.m., and a tractor-trailer crash on Interstate 64 had closed one lane east of the Simpsonville exit, but shoppers found their way to the grand opening of The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass on Thursday morning. “I got here at 8 and parked over at Culver’s,” said Renee Stucker of nearby Shelbyville. “I got here, I think it was 8:30,” said her friend Corinna Pannell of Simpsonville. “And I had to drive around until they opened the lot.” Officials had planned to open the mall’s parking lot a little later, but Simpsonville police Sgt.
