    Shopping for I-State merchandise in Des Moines

    I went shopping looking for I-State merchandise in Des Moines today, and came away unimpressed with there selection's for our merchandise. It sucks when all you see his Hawk merchandise, and Cornhusker merchandise in these stores! I went to Scheel's first, and could not find what I was looking for. Department stores like Younkers, JC Penny, and others hardly have anything for the Clones. Good God, we are only 35 miles from Ames, and all they care about is the Hawkeyes.

    I wonder how much of it is really the stores, and how much of it is prevented by hassles with ISU licensing.

    We need a "Strawberry Patch" in a Des Moines Mall.
    Or even Jordan Creek!

    Something other then clothing with the new I-State logo. I know I could go to Ames, just not sure when I will have a chance. I forgot about the Strawberry Patch in Ankeny, might have to check it out.

    I have actually gotten alot of really cool stuff at TJ Maxx lately. They have had alot of Nike Iowa state stuff, but it goes pretty fast.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Check out The Stadium in downtown Des Moines, not a bad selection although some of it can be pricey.

    Re: Shopping for I-State merchandise in Des Moines

    I have to second the TJ Maxx suggestion. It's hit-n-miss but everything I've gotten has been an excellent price. Sometimes Stine Mart has good product. Been getting quite a bit through Signify in Ames. If you pick it up there, no shipping charges.
