Castleton Square Mall is set to welcome a couple of new entries to its food court lineup, including a restaurant that made its Indianapolis debut just last year.

• Freshii and Starbucks are slated to open next month at the northeast-side shopping center. Freshii, a Canadian concept serving burritos, wraps, soups and salads, will take space next to TGI Friday’s. The only other Freshii in the city is at The Fashion Mall at Keystone. Starbucks, meanwhile, will be in Castleton’s Center Court.

• Foundry Provisions, a coffee shop at 16th and Alabama streets, is open for breakfast and lunch. It serves coffee from local business Julian Coffee Roasters, in addition to pastries and paninis.

Jack’s Donuts, a New Castle stalwart, has opened its second location, in the Bonn Building in Saxony Village near Interstate 69. The popular shop has been serving doughnuts for more than 50 years.

• Barnes and Noble Bookstores is moving to the former Borders Books location at River Road Crossing at the Fashion Mall in May.

Sensu, at 110 W. Main St. in Carmel next to Detour, closed late last month.

And what Retail Roundup would be complete without a yogurt shop mention, or three?

• Pearings Frozen Yogurt & Beyond is open at 6 W. Washington St. This is the first location for the locally based yogurt operation.

• Cultured Swirl opened April 19 at 1026 Virginia Ave. in the Fountain Square neighborhood.

• YoYo Yogurt also opened April 19, in the Anson Marketplace on East State Road 334 west of Zionsville. This is the Fort Wayne-based operation’s first location in the metro area.

    Please tell me that there will be more cupcake shops to go along with all of those frozen yogurt places, 'cause if it's one thing Indy doesn't have enough of is frozen yogurt and cupcakes!
  • Openings
    While a closing seems to make news in Carmel, I won't steel your thunder about all the new openings that haven't been reported.
  • Are you kidding?
    Bruce? I'm sick of reading everything they think we need or want to know about Carmel! Hell, if they could print it we'd probably be reading about each and every residents daily bowel movement ! It's gold up there, after all.... And to the poster complaining about yogurt shops.... Let me guess.... Former TCBY owner? Get real! Until just very recently indy had virtually zero shops and now that we actually have a few we have too many? Lol....
  • 22nd/Delaware
    Whats going in here? Lots of activity, construction, and cleaning up that location.
  • Haters gonna hate
    Bruce, please ignore the ignorant comments from Marshall. If you actually care about urban development, you should care about about development in Carmel...theres a heck of alot more urban development there than in Indy.

    Are you kidding me? There's a heck of a lot more urban development going on in Carmel than in Indianapolis? Sophia Square has been in Carmel for well over a year now and has the same number of retail tenants as it did then. Meanwhile, Indianapolis has multiple large apartment complexes under construction right now, most of which are larger than the ones in Carmel.

  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.
