Noblesville Shopping: From Massive Mega-Malls to Cozy Storefronts
Noblesville shopping has received a big shot in the arm lately. The Hamilton Town Center, a new Indianapolis shopping mall with just under one million square feet of sparkling space, was erected by the Simon Property Group with Gershman Brown & Associates, and opened in May of 2008.
The shopping center already has more than 300 tall trees decorating its uniquely attractive Main Street theme, with anchors such as J.C. Penney, Bed, Bath & Beyond and Dick’s Sporting Goods setting a congenial tone. Conveniently located just off I-69, it draws shoppers not only from its home of Noblesville, Indiana, but also from nearby Indianapolis suburbs like Carmel, Westfield and Fortville.

As is often the case, especially in the many Midwestern communities around Indiana, Noblesville grew out of what is now downtown, and shopping grew along with it. Throughout downtown Noblesville, called Courthouse Square, Noblesville shopping enthusiasts will find a delightful mix of unique and even historic places to explore, such as the Noblesville Clock Company, which is the largest clock shop in Indiana; Design! Design; The Gentleman Soldier, an antiques store; Heavenly Sweets; HMC Screen Printing; Noble Designs; Noblesville Antique Mall; Logan Village Mall; and Old Picket Fence, a home decorating center located inside one of many Noblesville historic buildings.
One of the biggest draws Noblesville shopping has to offer is its huge collection of antique shops, many of which are situated on or around the town’s Courthouse Square, decorated by quaint storefronts from the early 1800′s. This downtown Noblesville area is the home of the Noblesville Antique Mall, sometimes also called the Noblesville Emporium.
The Noblesville Antique Mall is a special shopping center overflowing with nostalgia; the mall sells antiques of all possible types, from Victorian mannequins in period dress to vintage sporting goods and antique toys.
The Noblesville Emporium is a wonderful Noblesville shopping center that contains no less than 225 unique Noblesville businesses and specialty stores, including antiques. Though its name implies a location in the city of Noblesville, its street address is actually in Anderson, Indiana, yet another Indianapolis suburb just a hop, skip and jump away.
