  • Compass roseForever 21 is taking over the former Borders space at Castleton Square Mall. The clothing retailer has begun its transformation of the former bookstore space and should open in about three months, a mall official said.
  • Hollister Co. has closed its store at Circle Centre. The teen-oriented retailer, part of Ohio-based Abercrombe & Fitch Co., still has stores at Greenwood Park, Castleton Square and Clay Terrace.
  • Staples plans to build a standalone store at the southeast corner of 96th Street and Interstate 69 in a center that includes Kohl's and Meijer. The 15,800-square-foot office supply store would replace a location north of 96th Street between Walmart and Marsh.
  • United Package Liquors plans to take about 3,200 square feet for a new store in the shopping center along Broad Ripple Avenue west of Compton Street. The new store will replace the snug United Package store at the northeast corner of Winthrop and Broad Ripple avenues.
  • Cheddar's Casual Cafe, a chain based in Texas, plans to open its first central Indiana location along Rockville Road in Avon. Plans call for the restaurant at 9512 Rockville Road to take about 5,000 square feet.
  • Jack in the Box has filed plans to open a restaurant near 86th Street and Michigan Road, in front of Lowe's and Goodwill. The restaurant is taking about 2,800 square feet.
  • Firestone Complete Auto Care plans to build a new 10-bay tire and auto service center along State Road 135 in Greenwood between the Meijer store at Main Street and Menards. The shop will take 8,400 square feet.
  • Aldi has filed plans for a new store near Metropolis mall in Plainfield. The shop is planned for 2382 E. Main St., across the street from a Walmart Supercenter.
  • The Runners Forum has opened a store at State Road 37 and 141st Street in Fishers. The homegrown retail chain also has locations downtown across from City Market and at Merchants Square in Carmel.
  • Godby Home Furnishings has opened a 40,000-square-foot store in Carmel in the former home of O'Malia's at 13610 N. Meridian St.
  • Jack
    Is there a hard open date yet for the JitB at 21st and Post?
  • Cheddars returns!
    Indy actually did have a Cheddars back in the ‘90s on 38th Street, just east of Lafayette Road. It burned down and the lot has remained empty all this time. I, for one, will be looking forward to its new location in the Indy area. Good burgers!
    • Cheddar's
      Technically the store will be around 8,000 sq ft and is adressed as 9466 E US Highway 36
    • Beaten
      J-lo beat me to it about the Cheddars on 38th. They were pretty good. I hope they're better than chilis/Applebee's.
      • Broad Ripple - UPL
        I'm guessing BRVA plans to petition against the United Package Liquors?
      • UPL moving
        Do you know what's in the plans for the old United Pkg location? I am sure there is plenty of interest for that spot...
      • Cheddars
        I visited the one in southern Indiana (Evansville) a few months ago. Same as the one that burned down here, all the way to the ceiling fans. The only thing missing was the Fajitas on the menu. Welcome back!
      • BRVA Changes
        The longtime director of this dictatorship like organization has resigned. I pray her successor is more business friendly.
      • Happenings
        Dang I was gonna post about Cheddars too (lol) loved that place back in the day they had the best onion rings.

        Where is the UPL store actually going to be?

        Trade Secret salon closed in Castleton Sq.

        Naked Chopstix Ole King Cole location is being held up due to legal issues.

        Is Calle 52 ever going to open?

        Any word on the downtown Nordstrom taking a tenant?
      • Cheddars
        Cheddars is definitely better than Applebee's and Chili's. The menu selection and quality is superior, as is the value. I frequent the one in Fort Wayne when visiting family and am always pleased.
      • Cheddars
        When is the cheddars opening on Rockville rd.?
        • Cheddar's
          I'm with Elizabeth - does anyone know when the Cheddar's will open? I've searched but haven't come up with anything...
        • I remember Cheddar's in Indy
          I remember that Cheddars in Indianapolis, too.
        • Disappointed
          I was hoping the structure being built between Kohl's and Meijer on 96th St was something better than Staples. I was hoping for a restaurant or a NEW store. Not something that already exists down the street and that I rarely shop at. OK, I am done spending my two cents :)
          • Gordman's
            I see a new Gordman's going into Avon. What type of store is it?
          • Cheddars opening.
            Cheddars open on June 11 at 11. I for one am looking forward to it. Honey butter Crossaints are the best
          • Staples
            I agree, not sure why Meijer would want school supply competitor in their parking lot...
          • Cheddar's - Southside Indy
            Saw a building permit for a new Cheddar's Restaurant at NE corner of County Line Rd. and Emerson.

          1. These liberals are out of control. They want to drive our economy into the ground and double and triple our electric bills. Sierra Club, stay out of Indy!

          2. These activist liberal judges have gotten out of control. Thankfully we have a sensible supreme court that overturns their absurd rulings!

          3. Maybe they shouldn't be throwing money at the IRL or whatever they call it now. Probably should save that money for actual operations.

          4. For you central Indiana folks that don't know what a good pizza is, Aurelio's will take care of that. There are some good pizza places in central Indiana but nothing like this!!!

          5. I am troubled with this whole string of comments as I am not sure anyone pointed out that many of the "high paying" positions have been eliminated identified by asterisks as of fiscal year 2012. That indicates to me that the hospitals are making responsible yet difficult decisions and eliminating heavy paying positions. To make this more problematic, we have created a society of "entitlement" where individuals believe they should receive free services at no cost to them. I have yet to get a house repair done at no cost nor have I taken my car that is out of warranty for repair for free repair expecting the government to pay for it even though it is the second largest investment one makes in their life besides purchasing a home. Yet, we continue to hear verbal and aggressive abuse from the consumer who expects free services and have to reward them as a result of HCAHPS surveys which we have no influence over as it is 3rd party required by CMS. Peel the onion and get to the root of the will find that society has created the problem and our current political landscape and not the people who were fortunate to lead healthcare in the right direction before becoming distorted. As a side note, I had a friend sit in an ED in Canada for nearly two days prior to being evaluated and then finally...3 months later got a CT of the head. You pay for what you get...
