Coffee shop and women’s clothes store now part of Circle Centre Mall



Indianapolis, Indiana – Two new firms have leased space at Circle Centre Mall.

Women’s apparel, handbags, shoes, accessories, and more are available for purchase at Zoey N Pearls. Additionally, the shop features a lash and brow bar that is open by appointment. Naomi Pannell, the store’s owner, relocated the business from Greenwood to Level 3 of Circle Centre close to the Dining Pavilion.

Although it’s on Level 3, Café at the Circle is close to the Maryland Street bridge. The coffee and pastry shop was founded by Kamilah James. She also opened Kemet 360 Jewelry and Accessories in Circle Centre in the latter half of 2023.

James worked with Circle Centre Mall to hold the “Small Business Showcase at the Circle” in March, which included 25 minority-owned businesses.

According to a statement from Luke Aeschliman, vice president and general manager of the mall, Circle Centre continues to offer a platform for small-business owners to grow into physical locations in order to attract new customers.

At Circle Centre, the Georgia Street Rhythm and Blues Lounge, Fashion Closet, and The Perfect Gift are additional recently added stores. A weekly live music series has also begun at the mall every Tuesday from 5-7 p.m. in the Dining Pavilion.

More new stores are reportedly coming to the mall in the upcoming months, and a Small Business Showcase for existing tenants and other small-business retailers to set up pop-up shops will start in June, according to the mall’s statement.

The two rectangular blocks of the indoor shopping center are bounded by East Washington, South Meridian, West Georgia, and South Illinois streets.

“It’s the actual people, the bodies that we are lacking right now,” Watkins said. “We have positions posted currently.”

The extra funds become accessible after the budget is put into effect on July 1.
