There were at least three Ames store in Cincinnati and the surrounding area:
- One located in Hyde Park Plaza, in Hyde Park. Space was reused by bigg's, which was subsequently converted to a Remke (currently open).
- One located in Western Woods Mall, formerly a W.T. Grant, JC Penney and Zayre. Ames closed around 1991 and became a HomeGoods a few years later. Has since been demolished; a Home Depot stands on the site.
- One located in Hillcrest Square in Roselawn. Closed sometime in the early '90s and became a cheap furniture outlet before becoming a Roses seven years ago.Former Ames, Cincinnati, OH

Hillcrest lost the tenant that leased almost half its retail space when Ames department store closed several years ago.http://www.enquirer.com/editions/1996/12/14/bus_notes.html
have been a fourth location at Beechmont Mall in Anderson Township. The store was once a Gold Circle and later a Hills, but I'm not sure if it was ever an Ames. It was later a Kmart and is now being partially demolished.
Unfortunately I don't know the store numbers of any of these...no pictures that I've found, either.
