  • 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.

    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 excitement....like 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. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

      2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

      3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

      4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

      5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
