Openings: Earth Fare & Pout in Pink
Those who make their home on the Southside of Indianapolis now have another place to find organic and natural foods. The North Carolina–based grocer Earth Fare opened a new store on July 16 in Greenwood. The company prides itself on having “one of the strictest Food Philosophies in the industry.” Instead of advertising what they do offer, they focus on a different type of mission. They draw attention to the things their products do not contain: high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, artificial colors and sweeteners, and synthetic growth hormones in fresh meat and dairy.
The grand opening was a community celebration, complete with drawings, prizes, demonstrations and free samples. Many were impressed by the multiple varieties of food, as well as the friendly staff. The turnout was a great success, and Southsiders embraced the new store with open arms.
Pout In Pink
Center Grove moms and their daughters have a new place to buy dresses and accessories, and to throw a party. Pout In Pink Boutique & Party Center opened in late July in the Kroger shopping center at Fairview and State Road 135. Area resident Kelly Angel owns the boutique.
Angel says the boutique features unique and one-of-a-kind clothes from a variety of suppliers including Mud Pie, RuffleButts and Chasing Butterflies. You will also find Mommy and me matching dresses and a line of handmade dresses. They will be adding “Maddie Miss” one-of-a-kind clothing named for her daughter Maddie.
The store also features a party area that includes hair, makeup and nail demonstrations as part of the package. The girls are made up, dressed up and can be a “Pop Star” on the room’s stage or be the “Princess for the Day” that includes a crowning ceremony.
