News: Happy Holidays to everyone on the forum! It's been another great year of topics. 2018 will be a great year. The other Admin, Jon is supposed to be coming up to Connecticut this coming spring or summer to meet up with me. Mayhem will sure to follow us. LOL. Gonna visit the still vacant AMES HQ in Rocky Hill, the last vacant AMES in Connecticut located in Seymour, and going to hit up one of the 3 remaining K-MARTS in Connecticut. As a side trip we're probably going to hit Northern Mass and meet up with Chris the founder of the AMES Fan Club. ~ Brammy. New Email

It was caused by a discarded cigarette. I was 5 at the time and could see the flames shooting up in the sky.  I was crying about the toys that were burning.  Since this day I have been petrified of structural fires.  The store ended up rebuilding and opening back up, closing when the chain went out of business.

When I was with Ames in the late 80's we had a store in northern Indiana that was
destroyed by fire.  Same cause.....customer was smoking in the paint department!
