Several interesting nuggets today ...

El Bodegon, a Latin market and tapas bar, is slated to open soon along 96th Street in Fishers. The shop will feature a grocery store with fine food and wines from South America and Spain, and a dining area serving small plates including empanadas and paella. The space, formerly home to the short-lived Tossed chain, also will be available for catering and events. The market is in a strip anchored by Beauty Brands and Panera. More information is here.

Apple Store at The Fashion Mall at Keystone closed for remodeling on Monday and is scheduled to reopen Sept. 25, in time to welcome holiday shoppers. No word on whether the store revamp will be designed to showcase the company's rumored answer to the Kindle reading device. The store is in the western portion of the mall near Williams Sonoma.

Post office branches in three Indianapolis neighborhoods are targeted for closure by the U.S. Postal Service, according to a list released Sept. 2. The branches include offices at 456 N. Meridian St., 8804 W. Washington St., and 1144 S. Belmont St. The branches are among more than 400 nationwide facing consolidation or closure because of a budget crisis. The Postal Service actually reduced the closure list by 200 since July but all three Indianapolis-area locations remain on the chopping block.

S&K Menswear stores along U.S. 31 South in Greenwood and 82nd Street in Castleton have closed, along with more than 100 other stores across the country. The Virginia-based chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in February but later had to switch to Chapter 7. The liquidation began in June.

  • The post office in Nora may be closing also due to the fact that Target owns the land it sits on and may build an addition to accomodate a super Target store now that Kroger is opening across the street.
  • Hi Cory:

  1. Why not take some time to do some research before traveling to that Indiana town or city, and find the ones that are no smoking either inside, or have a patio? People like yourself are just being selfish, and unnecessarily trying to take away all indoor venues that smokers can enjoy themselves at. Last time I checked, it is still a free country, and businesses do respond to market pressure and will ban smoking, if there's enough demand by customers for it(i.e. Linebacker Lounge in South Bend, and Rack and Helen's in New Haven, IN, outside of Fort Wayne). Indiana law already unnecessarily forced restaurants with a bar area to be no smoking, so why not support those restaurants that were forced to ban smoking against their will? Also, I'm always surprised at the number of bars that chose to ban smoking on their own, in non-ban parts of Indiana I'll sometimes travel into. Whiting, IN(just southeast of Chicago) has at least a few bars that went no smoking on their own accord, and despite no selfish government ban forcing those bars to make that move against their will! I'd much rather have a balance of both smoking and non-smoking bars, rather than a complete bar smoking ban that'll only force more bars to close their doors. And besides IMO, there are much worser things to worry about, than cigarette smoke inside a bar. If you feel a bar is too smoky, then simply walk out and take your business to a different bar!

  2. As other states are realizing the harm in jailing offenders of marijuana...Indiana steps backwards into the script of Reefer Madness. Well...you guys voted for your Gov...up to you to vote him out. Signed, Citizen of Florida...the next state to have medical marijuana.

  3. It's empowering for this niche community to know that they have an advocate on their side in case things go awry. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lrst9VXVKfE

  4. Apparently the settlement over Angie's List "bundling" charges hasn't stopped the practice! My membership is up for renewal, and I'm on my third email trying to get a "basic" membership rather than the "bundled" version they're trying to charge me for. Frustrating!!

  5. Well....as a vendor to both of these builders I guess I have the right to comment. Davis closed his doors with integrity.He paid me every penny he owed me. Estridge,STILL owes me thousands and thousands of dollars. The last few years of my life have been spent working 2 jobs, paying off the suppliers I used to work on Estridge jobs and just struggling to survive. Shame on you Paul...and shame on you IBJ! Maybe you should have contacted the hundreds of vendors that Paul stiffed. I'm sure your "rises from the ashes" spin on reporting would have contained true stories of real people who have struggled to find work and pay of their debts (something that Paul didn't even attempt to do).
