    Sucks to see a company go out of business. However, if that and the post office were out of there, itd be a prime candidate for new development in the area, without having to have too much additional negative impact on existing businesses (as compared to some of the plans that came out awhile back)

    Wasn't a big fan after they dropped the tailgate brand. They had the same stuff as the bookstore.

    Bummer! I worked there in the early eighties for the late Doug Harms - The original creator and owner. It was not in that location when I worked there - just a couple of buildings to the north.

    Not a bad idea, that would be a good location for a Walgreen's, CVS, or Hy-Vee Drug Store.

    It would be great if they put something in there like a bar or good restaurant but it's Ames...I'm sure it will be an apartment building

    That would not be a bad thing either. Increase the population in campustown and it may increase the potential for new businesses such as restaurants and other things. My personal feeling is that it would be nice to have a coveniance store, like walgreens or hyvee drug store in campus town to create some new business other than just bars. Campus town needs a little something for during the day.

    Re: T Galaxy in Ames closing

    Well, I know that I did my part to keep that place in business. Sad to see it go. I think that UBS has some stuff that is poor quality (other than Nike and UnderArmor) and Cy's Locker Room is overpriced. Sigler on Main has too much hok and UNI stuff for me to go in there.

    Cy's Locker Room is overpriced? The only time T-Galaxy was worth going in was when everything was on HUGE clearance because it was the most overpriced place in Ames.
