    Sign at Theisen's

    There is a sign by the front door at Theisen's here in Ames, maybe all Theisen's, which basically says that they will not be beat on a price and that they will match everyone. Then... at the bottom it states that this does not qualify on liquation sales. Me and my girlfriend laughed at this. Isn't it liquidation sales? I'm pretty sure liquation is not a word and if it is, it's not used correctly in this sentence. Has anyone else noticed this? How embarassing on a permanent sign in your store.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    And everyone I know around here pronounces it "ty-sons" even though it looks "thee-sens"

    That's because it's supposed to be pronounced "tysons".

    Theisens is awesome. Lots of cool stuff and very reasonable in price. Outdoor clothing and footwear, any outside tools you could possibly need. I wish we had one in Waukee.....

    I'm glad I reread your post. I was going to explain why they shouldn't match liquidation sales and then I read it again and find you were referring to a spelling problem. I guess they didn't hit the "spelling and grammar" button before they hit the print button.

    Good find

    It just kind of sprang up overnight a few months ago. It's down by the South Dayton exit off of 30.
