Retail roundup: Everything's better with coffee? And more

Two new retail concepts are hoping to cash in by pairing their offerings with fresh-brewed coffee.

Classic Cleaners and
                              Coffee Express IndyClassic Cleaners & Coffee Express opened this week at the northeast corner of College Avenue and 49th Street. The shop uses an eco-friendly, no-odor cleaning solution, meaning the only aroma in the shop comes from the fresh-brewed organic Copper Moon coffees. The shop, which also features traditional laundry equipment, is the 18th in central Indiana for the homegrown Classic chain.

Pearings IndyPearings Frozen Yogurt & Beyond has inked a deal to open at the northwest corner of Washington and Meridian streets between T-Mobile and Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery. The shop will feature frozen yogurt and a "PEARings" bar that varies depending on the time of day (morning offerings to include Greek yogurt, oatmeal and crepes). Brewed coffee, an espresso bar, smoothies and juices will be available all day. Owner Matthew Meinema's goal is to franchise the concept.

Elsewhere:

  • Charlie & Barney's, the homegrown chili specialist, has closed its outpost in the first floor of PNC Center between Subway and Pizza Di Tito. Charlie & Barney's continues to operate its flagship restaurant at 225 E. Ohio St.
  • Pandora, the Danish jewelry company, plans to open a store at The Fashion Mall at Keystone. The shop is taking 750 square feet. Pandora already has a store at Castleton Square Mall and sells its wares at several jewelry stores.
  • Noble Roman's plans to open a standalone take-and-bake shop at the southeast corner of 96th Street and Michigan Road. The concept is taking 1,400 square feet in a center that also includes Subway and Honey Baked Ham.
  • Jack in the Box has opened its newest Indianapolis-area store along 38th Street between High School and Moller roads, its sixth in the local market.

  • Classic Cleaners
    We live very close to 49th and College, and while we are always glad to see anything new opening on that corner, another dry cleaners was probably not the best option. We already have three within walking distance. I do realize it's a bit of a different concept and I truly hope it makes it. Just seems like an odd choice.
  • Pearings Website?
    I was wondering if anyone has been able to find the Pearings website... I would love to learn more about the concept but am unable to find any info outside of this post. Thanks for your help!
  • Pearings
    Looks like their website will be at PearingsYogurt.com, though it is not live yet.
  • Coffee? yes, please
    Susan, the fact that one of those dry cleaners has lost buttons on everything I've ever taken to them (I haven't tried the cleaners closest to Classic), coupled with the eco-friendly factor and the coffee, is certainly enough to make me switch. Good luck to Classic Cleaners!

  2. My name is Mr Henry Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Mr Daniel Jones A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via fidelityloanfirm@outlook.com

  4. Elected officials, like Mourdock, get vested in 8 years. It takes 10 years for all other public employees, most of whom make a lot less money. So much for the promise to finish out his term.

  5. Great state treasurer and a good man!! Just curious if the folks who didn't quite understand his quote would like to tell my daughter-in-law that God didn't intend her! Mourdock's comment was correct but twisted and the article didn't mention that his opponent and the press let the impression stand that Mourdock meant that the rape was intended. Stupid people!!
