Shopping in Broad Ripple



Broad Ripple has always been self-sustaining. In the 1950s, several stores, Wm. H. Block Co., L. Strauss, Kroger and Standard Grocery, an early self-serve grocery store, opened in the area to allow north-side residents to shop closer to home. Block’s was established on Broad Ripple Avenue in 1954, operating until a larger store moved into Glendale Mall in 1958. While the other stores are long gone, Kroger remains an integral part of the village.Image courtesy Use of this image is restricted to projects related to Destination Indiana. IHS may not reproduce
