Ames in Eastern Connecticut (Pt. 1)

When Ames went bankrupt in 2002, the chain left behind many locations in Eastern Connecticut, so I thought I thought I could tell you what happened to Ames locations across the area:

Windham County


728 Hartford Pike (CT 101), Dayville, CT
This location was one of the first in the state, opening in 1983. It was one of the longest ones vacant, lasting 8 years. Nothing opening at the former Ames until 2010, when Planet Fitness opened up. Planet Fitness toke up most of the space. Some photos:


Tolland County


95 Storrs Road (CT 195), Mansfield, CT, Inside the East Brook Mall
This location was opened in 1998, replacing the only Caldor in the county. It was vacant from 2002-2005. Kohl's opened up in the former Ames area, and has remained since. Photos:


35 Talcottville Rd (CT 83), Vernon, CT
This location replaced a Caldor in the late-1990s and was closed during the Ames bankruptcy. The location was replaced by Price Chopper in 2005, which it has remained since. Photos:
