NAVEL GAZING: They’re Putting What Where?

Our inspiration for this week’s podcast came from a story Eugene reported last week about Panera Bread and Aldi’s planning new locations on Derby’s Pershing Drive.

In the days after that news broke, the Valley Indy tried to confirm the companies’ plans with Panera and Aldi’s themselves, with varying degrees of success.

Stories about new businesses — or speculation about new businesses — are generally very popular (like this one, or this one, for example) but such businesses are usually pretty reticent about saying too much, if anything at all, before their plans are set in stone.

We talk about the difficulties of trying to report those stories, as well as how readers react to them — often with suggestions about businesses they’d rather see coming to the area.
