    Wal-Mart is upping the ante with a couple of these:

    I heard Petco and Sports Authority once upon a time but I know they ran into some road blocks at City Hall I think, not sure if it's still that.

    They basically have like maybe one big concrete wall built as of today, and a crane. I didn't see what the sign said they were building though.

    Looks like they decided to go ahead without the tax abatement, must not have really needed it. Sports Authority might be nice to have (although I've never been to one so I don't know what they're like), as there really isn't anything like that in Ames now. personally I hate the big box Pet Stores and the Pet industry in general so not too excited about that, but more business is good for Ames.

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    I hope it is a Sports Authority, that is something that is needed in Ames.

    My guess is they are building something that will flood.

    Re: What are they building?

    Is it "Pet Smart" or "Pets Mart"? I could never figure that one out?!
