    New Autozone in Ames

    Saw the a sign near the construction that's starting next to Texas Roadhouse in Ames, time to get excited people. Now just in case you didn't want to go to Advance Auto right across the street, or Oreilly Auto Parts two doors down you'll FINALLY have another place to stop on Duff to get your auto parts. Thank god. Although I will say, at least it's not another god damned mattress store, so kudos to whoever made that decision.

    I would have preferred something with auto parts and mattresses.

    Do a lot of people really shop for auto parts?

    Well, cars don't fix themselves, and most of us have one that will need to be fixed eventually.

    Obviously, someone thinks they can make money off of this. Otherwise, I have no idea how there is demand for that many auto parts stores within a few block radius.

    Expand the radius a bit, and there's Arnold Motor Supply, up towards East Hyvee.

    You must be someone who pays $400 to change brakes that cost $30. A few tools and you can save yourself a ton of money.

    I wish it was a Chinese food place. The 17 already in Ames really isn't enough.
