  • Compass roseHobby Lobby has filed plans to take over space now occupied by Ashley Furniture in Carmel. The furniture giant is in the final week of a liquidation sale. Its departurne will make way for the Oklahoma City-based Hobby Lobby chain to relocate its Carmel store from 2206 E. 116th St. to the vacated space at 2003 E. Greyhound Pass. Hobby Lobby has four Indianapolis-area locations including Greenwood and Avon.
  • Party City plans to open a new store at Clay Terrace in Carmel. The 12,600-square-foot store will replace Three Chairs Co., which is closing, and Baker Furniture, which is considering a move to another space within the mall.
