Just returned yesterday from a trip to Florida, where Val and I stopped at 5 Ames's on the way!  Tons of pictures to come.  Also snagged two receiving signs!

Richmond, VA was the Azalea mall location... Unbelievably, as Zayre88 said in 2004, this mall was closed in 95 and demolished in 98, the mall sign with Ames logo still stands!!!  15 years and the sign remains!

Also, after seeing Granville by gu4ever and stopping by 8400 Eastern Ave in Baltimore it is nice to see that a few unchanged Ames still exist!

Chris, where was the store located in Baltimore?  I lived there for 25 years and wondered if I remember it?

It was located at 8400 Eastern Ave, adjacent to an abandoned Sams club and restaurant.  The only active store in the entire plaza was a Chuck E. Cheeses!

Spent about six weeks at the Ames on University Blvd. in Jacksonville.  Was sent there as
part of an exchange program when Ames bought Zayre.  I was sent to the then-Zayre store
in Jacksonville and one of their managers got sent to my old store in Michigan.  It was an
interesting experience.  Very nice people, but sadly the company went Chap. 11 and closed
this store less than a year later.
