  • Roll With It Bakery, which serves homemade breads, cupcakes, cookies and cream puffs to humans, has moved into the former home of dog bakery Love of Dogs at 5539 E. Washington St. in Irvington. The shop, owned by Tess Ireland and Corey Rutland, is open Tuesdays through Sundays.
  • Boost Mobile has replaced the former Starbucks coffee shop at the corner of 38th and Meridian streets. Starbucks closed the store in 2008 along with more than a dozen others in Indianapolis.
  • Francesca's Collections, a Houston-based women’s boutique chain, opened a new location at Clay Terrace in Carmel. The chain, which has another a store at Castleton Square, has locations in 28 states.
  • Enzo Pizza plans to open a new restaurant in a former Hardee's location in Franklin at 2602 N. Morton St. The locally based pizza chain has three locations in Indianapolis, one in Elkhart and one in Adrian, Mich.
  • Lids Kids has closed at Castleton Square Mall. The spinoff of the homegrown hat chain opened the shop a few years ago next to the entrance to Macy's.
  • Survival Fitness moved to a new location at Clay Terrace in Carmel, between Luxe Home Interiors and Charles Schwab.
  • Bummer
    I saw the Boost at the old 38th Street Starbucks. I was disappointed. I live near there and was hoping for something that would generate more foot traffic and a Dunkin Donuts. I don't give the Boost Store long before it shuts down. Too Bad.
    • Re: Bummer
      Starbucks seemed to do well there, it was always busy. Why can this corner not attract and keep solid businesses? City Yoga moved too...
      • Old Starbucks
        Starbucks didn't move because of poor sales at this location, they moved because the lease was near expiring as they were planning on downsizing in general. It just so happened that this particular store experienced too much of a crime risk to be worth it for Starbucks to maintain residency.
      • Jason's Deli
        I saw a Jason's Deli is moving in near Dean and 82nd street.

        It's a Houston based Deli chain but it is pretty good.
      • Jason's Deli
        Really Jason's Deli is coming to Indy? I love that place, amazing food!!
      • Woo-Hoo Jason's!
        We go there every time we visit grandaddy in Jackson, TN. Great (and huge) deli sandwiches, and a self-serve sundae bar that rocks!! More bad news for the ailing Shapiro's in Carmel (which never should have left its 86th Street home).
      • Chain? Why not
        I don't care if it's a chain or not. If it's new to town, I'll try it!
      • Irvington
        Glad to hear the old dog bakery is now a human bakery. I loved that place. I hope the new bakery is good.
      • Boost mobile
        Bad decision by the landlord of the old starbucks. I own building next to it. The corner could be developed for the Dunkin Donuts or a bank ect.
      • New Bank?
        So...Starbucks closed because there was "too much of a crime risk to be worth it for Starbucks to maintain residency", yet a BANK is a good idea?
      • Starbucks
        I worked for Starbucks corp. a few years ago. The closing of the 38th street location wasn't due to crime risk as much as the lack of a drive thru is what helped kill off that location. It was always more profitable than the location off of Fall Creek. That location had the crime problem.
      • The REAL REASOn
        I managed the 38th n meridian store up until it closed, I took ove after the former manger jumped ship, There were some poor business decisons made in the past that put the store in the hole, as a store we were not giving back, and the company were paying us to stay open. So there for the decision to close it was made, and simmilar situations world wide. 70% of the store that were closed were built after 2006

      1. Gay marriage is coming, whether or not these bigots and zealots like it or not. We must work to ensure future generations remember the likes of Greg Zoeller like they do the racists of our shame.

      2. Perhaps a diagram of all the network connections of all politicians to their supporters and those who are elite/wealthy and how they have voted on bills that may have benefited their supporters. The truth may hurt, but there are no non-disclosures in government.

      3. I'm sure these lawyers were having problems coming up with any non-religious reason to ban same-sex marriage. I've asked proponents of this ban the question many times and the only answers I have received were religious reasons. Quite often the reason had to do with marriage to a pet or marriage between a group even though those have nothing at all to do with this. I'm looking forward to less discrimination in our state soon!

      4. They never let go of the "make babies" argument. It fails instantaneously because a considerable percentage of heterosexual marriages don't produce any children either. Although if someone wants to pass a law that any couple, heterosexual or homosexual, cannot be legally married (and therefore not utilize all legal, financial, and tax benefits that come with it) until they have produced a biological child, that would be fun to see as a spectator. "All this is a reflection of biology," Fisher answered. "Men and women make babies, same-sex couples do not... we have to have a mechanism to regulate that, and marriage is that mechanism." The civil contract called marriage does NOTHING to regulate babymaking, whether purposefully or accidental. These conservatives really need to understand that sex education and access to birth control do far more to regulate babymaking in this country. Moreover, last I checked, same-sex couples can make babies in a variety of ways, and none of them are by accident. Same-sex couples often foster and adopt the children produced by the many accidental pregnancies from mixed-sex couples who have failed at self-regulating their babymaking capabilities.

      5. Every parent I know with kids from 6 -12 has 98.3 on its car radio all the time!! Even when my daughter isn't in the car I sometimes forget to change stations. Not everybody wants to pay for satellite radio. This will be a huge disappointment to my 9 year old. And to me - there's so many songs on the radio that I don't want her listening to.
