Several new restaurants and retailers have recently opened or are planning to open in Boone and Hamilton counties. Here is an overview:

Ross dress for less

Ross Dress for Less, a discount clothing chain, plans to open a new store at Stony Creek Marketplace in Noblesville, just off State Road 37.

The Pleasanton, Calif.-based retailer plans to occupy 22,553 square feet in the former Barnes & Noble store at 17090 Mercantile Blvd., according to plans filed with the city.

A company spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the store’s planned opening date.

Ross Dress for Less has 13 stores in central Indiana, including Castleton, Greenwood, Indianapolis, Plainfield, Speedway and Whitestown.

The Noblesville store will be the company’s first location in Hamilton County.

Ross Stores Inc. has been expanding in recent years. The company announced plans in March to open 100 stores in 2022, including 75 Ross Dress for Less stores and 25 dd’s Discounts stores.

The company has 1,649 Ross Dress for Less stores in 40 states, as well as Washington, DC and Guam.

Room service on wheels

Room Service on Wheels, a food delivery business, plans to open later this month at 11110 Lantern Road in Fishers.

Founder Randy De John told IBJ that his new venture will offer wraps, salads, wings, chicken fingers, burgers, pastas and a kids’ menu.

De John, a 37-year restaurant industry veteran and former managing partner of Casler’s Kitchen & Bar in Fishers, said he decided to start a food delivery business because of his dissatisfaction with the long wait time when ordering from DoorDash and GrubHub.

His goal will be to get food to customers in 30 to 45 minutes. The company will not charge delivery costs.

Watch for a Q&A with De John in the June 17 issue of IBJ.

A bar closed, another sold, in Noblesville

A longtime Noblesville bar is closing, while another will soon be under new ownership.

Barley Island Brewing Co., 639 E. Conner St., plans to close on July 23 after 22 years of selling beverages south of the Noblesville Courthouse Square, according to a Facebook post from the facility. The owners said their building was acquired in July 2021 and they were granted a one-year lease that expires at the end of July.

Meanwhile, Rick Robison, owner of Syds Fine Food and Spirits for 27 years, announced on Facebook on Tuesday that he had sold the oldest bar in town. Robison declined to reveal the buyer, but said the new owner plans to continue operating the business.

Syds is in the JL Evans Building at 808 Logan Street, on the north side of Courthouse Square.

The Evans Building housed a tavern for most of its history dating back to 1889, except for the years 1909-1933. Walter Carey and Sid Gill opened Syds in 1945.

Chicken Salad Chicken

Chicken Salad Chick, an expanding chain of fast-casual restaurants that entered the Indianapolis-area market last year, plans to open a location in Whitestown.

The Auburn, Alabama-based company said it will open the store later this year at 6208 Mills Drive.

Chicken Salad Chick already has five locations in the area: in downtown Glendale at 6159 N. Keystone Ave. and 8705 S. Emerson Dr. in Indianapolis; at 3450 W. 86th St. and 12751 N. Pennsylvania St. in Carmel; and at 11545 Ikea Way in Fishers.

Shops in downtown Carmel

Addendum, a luxury lifestyle concept store, and Hey Little Diddle, a baby and children’s boutique, previously had stores in downtown Carmel but have now opened second stores in the mixed-use development of one million square feet that opened in 2010 south of the city’s Arts & Design District.

Addendum, which sells tableware, crystal and entertainment pieces, designer jewelry and home fragrances, has opened a stand-alone MacKenzie-Childs boutique at 751 Hanover Place, Suite 159, which sells lighting, hand-painted furniture, customizable bags, clutches, travel accessories and candles.

Hey Little Diddle’s new boutique at 736 Hanover Place, Suite 100F, will offer a wide range of baby gifts and gift wrap.

Restore hyper well-being

Restore Hyper Wellness has opened its third central Indiana location at 11100 N. Michigan Road., Suite 130, in Zionsville.

The Texas-based company offers whole body cryotherapy, red light therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and intravenous infusions.

Heather Mesalam of Carmel also has locations in Carmel and Fisher.
