GordmansThe Omaha-based fashion and home decor store Gordmans plans to open its first Indianapolis-area store in Avon in the Gables Crossing shopping center. The 50,000-square-foot store, scheduled to open in August, is planned for the center along Rockville Road west of Ronald Reagan Parkway, just east of Walmart and next door to Hobby Lobby. Gordmans, which has 78 stores in 18 states and bills itself as a more upscale version of the discount department store, offers brand-name and specialty store products at up to 60 percent off normal retail prices. Gordmans has stores in Evansville, Fort Wayne, Lafayette and Mishawaka. Private equity firm Sun Capital Partners, which owns Marsh Supermarkets, acquired Gordmans in 2008 and continued to hold a majority stake after it took the retailer public in 2010.

      The Soft opening is July 25, and the grand opening Aug 3. I hope the Avon community will support a local business, and have fun experiencing big saving and big selection with fun and friendly associates.

    1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

    2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

    3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

    4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

    5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
