Retail roundup: Everything’s better with coffee? And more

Two new retail concepts are hoping to cash in by pairing their offerings with fresh-brewed coffee.

Classic Cleaners and Coffee Express IndyClassic Cleaners & Coffee Express opened this week at the northeast corner of College Avenue and 49th Street. The shop uses an eco-friendly, no-odor cleaning solution, meaning the only aroma in the shop comes from the fresh-brewed organic Copper Moon coffees. The shop, which also features traditional laundry equipment, is the 18th in central Indiana for the homegrown Classic chain.

Pearings IndyPearings Frozen Yogurt & Beyond has inked a deal to open at the northwest corner of Washington and Meridian streets between T-Mobile and Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery. The shop will feature frozen yogurt and a "PEARings" bar that varies depending on the time of day (morning offerings to include Greek yogurt, oatmeal and crepes). Brewed coffee, an espresso bar, smoothies and juices will be available all day. Owner Matthew Meinema's goal is to franchise the concept.
