  • Roll With It Bakery, which serves homemade breads, cupcakes, cookies and cream puffs to humans, has moved into the former home of dog bakery Love of Dogs at 5539 E. Washington St. in Irvington. The shop, owned by Tess Ireland and Corey Rutland, is open Tuesdays through Sundays.
  • Boost Mobile has replaced the former Starbucks coffee shop at the corner of 38th and Meridian streets. Starbucks closed the store in 2008 along with more than a dozen others in Indianapolis.
  • Francesca's Collections, a Houston-based women’s boutique chain, opened a new location at Clay Terrace in Carmel. The chain, which has another a store at Castleton Square, has locations in 28 states.
  • Enzo Pizza plans to open a new restaurant in a former Hardee's location in Franklin at 2602 N. Morton St. The locally based pizza chain has three locations in Indianapolis, one in Elkhart and one in Adrian, Mich.
  • Lids Kids has closed at Castleton Square Mall. The spinoff of the homegrown hat chain opened the shop a few years ago next to the entrance to Macy's.
  • Survival Fitness moved to a new location at Clay Terrace in Carmel, between Luxe Home Interiors and Charles Schwab.

    I saw the Boost at the old 38th Street Starbucks. I was disappointed. I live near there and was hoping for something that would generate more foot traffic and a Dunkin Donuts. I don't give the Boost Store long before it shuts down. Too Bad.
    • Re: Bummer
      Starbucks seemed to do well there, it was always busy. Why can this corner not attract and keep solid businesses? City Yoga moved too...
      • Old Starbucks
        Starbucks didn't move because of poor sales at this location, they moved because the lease was near expiring as they were planning on downsizing in general. It just so happened that this particular store experienced too much of a crime risk to be worth it for Starbucks to maintain residency.
      • Jason's Deli
        I saw a Jason's Deli is moving in near Dean and 82nd street.

        It's a Houston based Deli chain but it is pretty good.
      • Jason's Deli
        Really Jason's Deli is coming to Indy? I love that place, amazing food!!
      • Woo-Hoo Jason's!
        We go there every time we visit grandaddy in Jackson, TN. Great (and huge) deli sandwiches, and a self-serve sundae bar that rocks!! More bad news for the ailing Shapiro's in Carmel (which never should have left its 86th Street home).
      • Chain? Why not
        I don't care if it's a chain or not. If it's new to town, I'll try it!
      • Irvington
        Glad to hear the old dog bakery is now a human bakery. I loved that place. I hope the new bakery is good.
      • Boost mobile
        Bad decision by the landlord of the old starbucks. I own building next to it. The corner could be developed for the Dunkin Donuts or a bank ect.
      • New Bank?
        So...Starbucks closed because there was "too much of a crime risk to be worth it for Starbucks to maintain residency", yet a BANK is a good idea?
      • Starbucks
        I worked for Starbucks corp. a few years ago. The closing of the 38th street location wasn't due to crime risk as much as the lack of a drive thru is what helped kill off that location. It was always more profitable than the location off of Fall Creek. That location had the crime problem.
      • The REAL REASOn
        I managed the 38th n meridian store up until it closed, I took ove after the former manger jumped ship, There were some poor business decisons made in the past that put the store in the hole, as a store we were not giving back, and the company were paying us to stay open. So there for the decision to close it was made, and simmilar situations world wide. 70% of the store that were closed were built after 2006

      1. By Mr. Lee's own admission, he basically ran pro-bono ads on the billboard. Paying advertisers didn't want ads on a controversial, ugly billboard that turned off customers. At least one of Mr. Lee's free advertisers dropped out early because they found that Mr. Lee's advertising was having negative impact. So Mr. Lee is disingenous to say the city now owes him for lost revenue. Mr. Lee quickly realized his monstrosity had a dim future and is trying to get the city to bail him out. And that's why the billboard came down so quickly.

      2. Merchants Square is back. The small strip center to the south of 116th is 100% leased, McAlister’s is doing well in the outlot building. The former O’Charleys is leased but is going through permitting with the State and the town of Carmel. Mac Grill is closing all of their Indy locations (not just Merchants) and this will allow for a new restaurant concept to backfill both of their locations. As for the north side of 116th a new dinner movie theater and brewery is under construction to fill most of the vacancy left by Hobby Lobby and Old Navy.

      3. Yes it does have an ethics commission which enforce the law which prohibits 12 specific items. google it

      4. Thanks for reading and replying. If you want to see the differentiation for research, speaking and consulting, check out the spreadsheet I linked to at the bottom of the post; it is broken out exactly that way. I can only include so much detail in a blog post before it becomes something other than a blog post.

      5. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.
