A large and highly visible section of Greenwood Park Mall that has been empty for more than a year is getting a new tenant.
Naked Tchopstix, a family-owned sushi restaurant that started in Indianapolis, will fill a 6,300-square-foot space at the mall that previously was occupied by Stir Crazy. That restaurant, which had been a part of the mall’s outdoor lifestyle center since 2007, closed in January 2013.
The 115,000-square-foot lifestyle center replaced the L.S. Ayres Department Store with restaurants and shops, including BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, the Cheesecake Factory and Barnes & Noble about seven years ago. Once Stir Crazy closed, mall officials immediately started looking for replacements.
