  • CutcoCutco Cutlery, known for its in-home sales demonstrations by college students, plans to open a retail store in the Clearwater Springs Shopping Center at 82nd Street and Allisonville Road. The 2,600-square-foot store is just the third for Olean, NY-based Cutco, which has other locations in Erie, Pa. and Okemos, Mich. The company is expanding its retail footprint to introduce an expanded product line and reconnect with existing customers. The shop, scheduled to open this month, also will serve as a training facility for Cutco's direct sales division, Vector Marketing.
  • Performance Bicycle, the nation's largest specialty bike retailer, is opening a new store near Greenwood at the northwest corner of U.S. 31 and County Line Road. The shop at 8830 U.S. 31 South is scheduled to open April 8. The Chapel Hill, N.C.-based chain has more than 100 locations and aims to be a "friendly one-stop shop for all levels of cyclists."
  • Sensu, a huge new Asian-fusion restaurant, sushi bar and nightclub, has opened in the former home of Have A Nice Day Cafe. The 16,500-square-foot restaurant at 225 S. Meridian St. is owned by Jeremiah Hamman, whose Epic Hospitality Group also owns Mo's A Place for Steaks. Menu offerings include rock shrimp tempura, baked sea bass hand rolls, crab-shitake crusted filet mignon, black cod with miso and lobster tacos.
  • Marshalls is opening two new stores in former A.J. Wright locations in Southern Plaza and Keystone Plaza. The off-price retailer, which is part of Framingham, Mass.-based TJX Companies Inc., is taking 18,500 square feet at 4200 S. East St. and 19,900 square feet at 5302 Keystone Ave. Grand openings are scheduled for March 31. The chain has existing stores in Indianapolis, Nora, Avon and Carmel.
  • Avec Moi, a carryout comfort-food restaurant, is slated to open in May at the corner of 62nd Street and College Avenue. The space in the 1928 building at 701 E. 62nd St. formerly was home to a massage center. Specialties of owner Kris Parmelee include turkey meatloaf, ribs, butternut squash lasagna and sugar cookies. Parmelee is expanding a business she started at Indy's Kitchen, a commercial kitchen that rents space by the hour to food-focused entrepreneurs.

  • Dunkin Donuts
    Does anyone know what is going on with the old Bonjour Cafe that was to be turned into a Dunkin Donuts? I drove by recently and saw a "For Sale" sign up again.
    • DD and BR
      I believe it was to be a combination of Dunkin Donuts and Baskin Robbins, but las I heard they pulled out. I got my information from Fall Creek Place's website who keeps up on local development news.
    • Vito's downtown location
      Anybody know what's going on at Vito's old downtown location? It had a huge For Lease sign in the window which disappeared several months ago but there's been no activity as far as I can see.
    • TJMAXX
      How did you forget to mention the new TJMAXX opening on East 10th Street?
    • Former Vito's
      The downtown off-track betting facility is moving into the former Vito's space, while an Indianapolis Colts-themed restaurant is moving into the OTB's Claypool Courts space. Our story: http://www.ibj.com/coltsthemed-restaurant-in-the-works/PARAMS/article/26097
    • grocery
      To add to the comment above about the old Bonjour Cafe/Dunkin Donuts/Baskin-Robbins, what about the grocery store that was going in across the street? Haven't seen any activity there either.
    • Arhaus Furniture
      Arhaus Furniture in Carmel is moving to the Rivers Edge redevelopment on 82nd Street. I also heard that Cost Plus World Market is shopping around for space in the Castleton/Keystone area and vacating their location in Carmel as well.
    • Jim......
      The grocery store is going to be an IGA brand. They had to receive a variance for limited parking in July, but I am unsure what the result on that was. As far as I know, they still plan to develop that site.

    1. Uh, sorry Johnnie, but you are incorrect. Despite the assertions by yourself and various defenders and captains, sports attendance is NOT off significantly at most sporting events in the US. Variances in attendance has been in the range of single digits, both + & - for years now. MLB has had most of its best overall attendance nubers in the last decade, and that trend has been consistent for most major sporting events. The number one issue cited by most fans when asked about attendance is the overall cost of attending. The presence of HD and big screen televisions in home doesn't even register, as a factor for not attending an event. VALUE in the product is the key, and apparently is something lacking in the current ICS. What other explanation is there when with what is routinely touted as the "best" racing on the planet, fans are staying away in DROVES. A "close" title battle into the last event at Fontana, with the "cars and stars" of the ICS, and who showed up? MAYBE 8K. Sorry, but HD TV isn't to blame for that kind of fan apathy.

    3. If she was worth the $ the public outcry over direct tv dropping them would have kept them on their dishes as we have seen with other companies. I too quit watching channel 13 after she showed up since I left channel 8 because of her all show rather than production results. When Randy on 8 corrected her she had a big head and incorrectly challenged his correction for pronunciation of a city. Other antics while she matures was too much for me with her very inaccurate forecasts. All the forecasters were predicting rain until Thursday except Chris. They predicted sunny on Thursday but instead of rain until Thursday upon which the sun would finally make it out in full glory Chris was right on the money just as I too predicted looking at the radar on weather.gov. One thing I love about Angela is the fear you can see in her every time it thunders in the winter. It far exceeds the entertainment value of her body language (high heel noise drags, depression, etc) when her forecasts are so incorrect. Her hair stands on end, you have to see it!!!
