Two of the nation's hottest concepts in retail—a yoga apparel specialist and a new dollar-store concept targeting teens—are coming to Indianapolis.

Lululemon Athletica plans to open its first Indiana store at The Fashion Mall at Keystone. The chain, founded in 1998 in Vancouver, is moving into the mall's eastern wing, taking over the former home of Brookstone, which is relocating to a spot near the Apple Store. Lululemon athleticaThe Lululemon store is scheduled to open in about three months. The chain already operates a "showroom" shop with limited hours at 64th Street and Cornell Avenue in Broad Ripple; Lululemon uses the "showroom" concept shops to market the brand in communities that don't yet have a full-line store. The chain has more than 120 locations worldwide.

Five Below is looking at sites for between five and six stores in the Indianapolis area. The unique dollar-store concept targets Five Belowchildren and teens with products such as sporting goods, games, books, DVDs, snacks, jewelry and iPhone accessories, all priced at $5 or less. The Pennsylvania-based chain just opened its first store in Indiana, in Merrillville. Five Below stores take about 7,500 square feet. The chain, founded in 2002, already has more than 140 locations in 14 states.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
