Foot Locker has filed plans to open a 3,300-square-foot store at the corner of Meridian and Washington streets downtown. The space currently is home to Flagstar Bank, which plans to move to the former Bearno's space a few blocks away. Several restaurants, including Panera, Chipotle, McAlister's and McDonald's, had considered the high-visibility space in the building owned by local businessman John Goodman. The store would be the first downtown for New York-based Foot Locker Inc., which lost a bidding war with Indianapolis-based rival Finish Line to buy Genesco Inc. Finish Line now is trying to wiggle out
of the $1.5-billion deal. Foot Locker already has stores at several area malls.
