One of the more prominent Ketchum retail spaces will once again be filled after sitting vacant for nearly a year.

Lost River Outfitters has signed a lease for the ground floor, Main Street frontage space of the Jones Building, which sits on the southwest corner of Fourth Street.

The building had been occupied by Images of Nature, a gallery for photographer Thomas Mangelsen, who has numerous galleries throughout the West. The Ketchum gallery was closed at the end of July 2008.

Lost River Outfitters is currently located two blocks to the south, between First and Second streets. Suzanne Connor, a manager and buyer as well as guide for the fly-fishing outfitter, said owner Scott Schnebly decided to relocate to take advantage of a busier section of town.


"Last winter we would sometimes go four or five hours without anyone in the store," Connor said. "With rents going down, this was an affordable move to a place where things are happening with the best visibility on Main Street."

Connor said they intend to open at the beginning of July and will keep their current location open until the end of that month.
