  • Compass roseForever 21 is taking over the former Borders space at Castleton Square Mall. The clothing retailer has begun its transformation of the former bookstore space and should open in about three months, a mall official said.
  • Hollister Co. has closed its store at Circle Centre. The teen-oriented retailer, part of Ohio-based Abercrombe & Fitch Co., still has stores at Greenwood Park, Castleton Square and Clay Terrace.
  • Staples plans to build a standalone store at the southeast corner of 96th Street and Interstate 69 in a center that includes Kohl's and Meijer. The 15,800-square-foot office supply store would replace a location north of 96th Street between Walmart and Marsh.
  • United Package Liquors plans to take about 3,200 square feet for a new store in the shopping center along Broad Ripple Avenue west of Compton Street. The new store will replace the snug United Package store at the northeast corner of Winthrop and Broad Ripple avenues.
  • Cheddar's Casual Cafe, a chain based in Texas, plans to open its first central Indiana location along Rockville Road in Avon. Plans call for the restaurant at 9512 Rockville Road to take about 5,000 square feet.
  • Jack in the Box has filed plans to open a restaurant near 86th Street and Michigan Road, in front of Lowe's and Goodwill. The restaurant is taking about 2,800 square feet.
  • Firestone Complete Auto Care plans to build a new 10-bay tire and auto service center along State Road 135 in Greenwood between the Meijer store at Main Street and Menards. The shop will take 8,400 square feet.
  • Aldi has filed plans for a new store near Metropolis mall in Plainfield. The shop is planned for 2382 E. Main St., across the street from a Walmart Supercenter.
  • The Runners Forum has opened a store at State Road 37 and 141st Street in Fishers. The homegrown retail chain also has locations downtown across from City Market and at Merchants Square in Carmel.
  • Godby Home Furnishings has opened a 40,000-square-foot store in Carmel in the former home of O'Malia's at 13610 N. Meridian St.
  • Jack
    Is there a hard open date yet for the JitB at 21st and Post?
  • Cheddars returns!
    Indy actually did have a Cheddars back in the ‘90s on 38th Street, just east of Lafayette Road. It burned down and the lot has remained empty all this time. I, for one, will be looking forward to its new location in the Indy area. Good burgers!
    • Cheddar's
      Technically the store will be around 8,000 sq ft and is adressed as 9466 E US Highway 36
    • Beaten
      J-lo beat me to it about the Cheddars on 38th. They were pretty good. I hope they're better than chilis/Applebee's.
      • Broad Ripple - UPL
        I'm guessing BRVA plans to petition against the United Package Liquors?
      • UPL moving
        Do you know what's in the plans for the old United Pkg location? I am sure there is plenty of interest for that spot...
      • Cheddars
        I visited the one in southern Indiana (Evansville) a few months ago. Same as the one that burned down here, all the way to the ceiling fans. The only thing missing was the Fajitas on the menu. Welcome back!
      • BRVA Changes
        The longtime director of this dictatorship like organization has resigned. I pray her successor is more business friendly.
      • Happenings
        Dang I was gonna post about Cheddars too (lol) loved that place back in the day they had the best onion rings.

        Where is the UPL store actually going to be?

        Trade Secret salon closed in Castleton Sq.

        Naked Chopstix Ole King Cole location is being held up due to legal issues.

        Is Calle 52 ever going to open?

        Any word on the downtown Nordstrom taking a tenant?
      • Cheddars
        Cheddars is definitely better than Applebee's and Chili's. The menu selection and quality is superior, as is the value. I frequent the one in Fort Wayne when visiting family and am always pleased.
      • Cheddars
        When is the cheddars opening on Rockville rd.?
        • Cheddar's
          I'm with Elizabeth - does anyone know when the Cheddar's will open? I've searched but haven't come up with anything...
        • I remember Cheddar's in Indy
          I remember that Cheddars in Indianapolis, too.
        • Disappointed
          I was hoping the structure being built between Kohl's and Meijer on 96th St was something better than Staples. I was hoping for a restaurant or a NEW store. Not something that already exists down the street and that I rarely shop at. OK, I am done spending my two cents :)
          • Gordman's
            I see a new Gordman's going into Avon. What type of store is it?
          • Cheddars opening.
            Cheddars open on June 11 at 11. I for one am looking forward to it. Honey butter Crossaints are the best
          • Staples
            I agree, not sure why Meijer would want school supply competitor in their parking lot...
          • Cheddar's - Southside Indy
            Saw a building permit for a new Cheddar's Restaurant at NE corner of County Line Rd. and Emerson.

          1. I still don't understand how the FBI had any right whatsoever to investigate this elderly collector. Before the Antiquities Act it was completely legal to buy, trade or collect Native American artifacts. I used to see arrow heads, axes, bowls, corn grinders at antique shops and flea markets for sale and I bought them myself. But that was in the late 60's and early 70's. And I now know that people used to steal items from sites and sell them. I understand that is illegal. But we used to find arrow heads and even a corn grinder in our back yard when I was a child. And I still have those items today in my small collection.

          2. I lived in California and they had many of the things noted in the proposed suggestions from the "Blue Ribbon Panel". California is near financial collapse now. Let's not turn the great state of Indiana into a third world dump like California.

          3. The temporary closure of BR Avenue will get a lot of attention. But, one thing reported by the IndyStar really stands out to me, and is extraordinarily depressing: “Police also have agreed to crack down on noise violations, traffic violations and public intoxication.” In other words, the police have generously agreed to do their jobs (temporarily, at least), instead of just standing around waiting for someone to call 911. When is someone in this department going to get off their fat arse (looking at you, Chief), get their minds out of 1975-era policing and into 2014, and have his department engage in pro-active work instead of sitting around waiting for someone to be shot? Why in the hell does it take 7 people getting shot in one night in one of the city’s biggest tourist destinations, to convince the police (reluctantly, it would appear) that they actually need to do their f’n jobs? When is the Chief going to realize that there’s a huge, direct, proven correlation between enforcing the law (yes, all laws, especially those affecting quality of life) and preventing larger crimes from occurring? Is it racial BS? Is that what this extraordinary reluctance is all about? Is the department and the city terrified that if they do their jobs, they might offend someone? Whom, exactly? Will the victims of violence, murder, assault, rape, robbery, and theft be offended? Will the citizens who have to tolerate their deteriorating quality of life be offended? Will the businesses who see their customers flee be offended? Or, is it simple ignorance (maybe the Chief hasn’t heard about NYC’s success in fighting crime - it’s only the biggest g*&#am city in the country, after all)? Either way, Chief, if you don’t want to do your job, then step down. Let someone who actually wants the job take it.

          4. I thought Indiana had all the funding it needed for everything. That's why the state lottery and casino gambling were allowed, as the new tax revenue would take care of everything the state wanted to do.The recommendations sound like they came from California. Better think about that. What is the financial condition of that state?

          5. I was a fan of WIBC in the morning, Steve was the only WIBC host that I listened too, he gave the news with so much flare that I enjoyed listening to him on my way to work. Katz is no Steve. Sadly, I will not be listening to WIBC anymore.
