    What business would you like?

    For those of you in Ames/Des Moines, what type of place would you like to see? Not the name of a chain store but type of place, like wine bar, bike shop, etc.

    Same questions for those of you in the Cedar Rapids? Are you missing anything you think would do well?

    On the reals though I wish Ames had a furniture store, Redeker's in Boone is ok, having to go all the way down to Homemaker's is a pain in the ***.

    I agree, a furniture store would do well in Ames, its one of the things that isn't covered well in the retail market in Ames presently. Some of the stores sell furniture but there isn't a store that specializes in it currently and has a wide selection.

    Been a couple of years since I lived in CR, but I never really found anything that was needed and not already there.
