    What does Somerset need to do?

    Ames Tribune > Ames Tribune > News

    Personally, I don't see a toy store or bookstore making it in Somerset. What I would see making it is at least another restaurant or two. Maybe a seafood-bonefish grill type of place. I could easily see a sandwich shop like the West. St. Deli making it there.
    I thought a liquor store would make it but Fareway might get all that business now.

    Biking seems to be picking up a lot around the Ames community, so maybe a bike store?

    What's your opinions?

    They should lobby to relocate the whole neighborhood to the Skunk River valley by HWY 30. The city would be all over that!!

    There are already a couple of bike stores in Ames, so I don't know that there is enough of a market to support another. I would say more restaurants.

    The only reason I could think of bikes is because I bike out on the county roads up there and I am seeing a lot of bikes there. I just thought that they could draw a lot of people from boone/stanhope/story city areas that it might be closer to.
    I'm sure those areas are probably going to give the Fareway a lot of business.
