     This store was Located at 740 Hartford Pike in Dayville, Connecticut. The site is very close to Interstate 395. Ames Department Store opened in 1983 and closed in 2003. This store is now a Strip mall with Aldi's and Dollar Tree among the new tenants. The Aldi's opened on June 7th, 2010 and Dollar Tree also opened in June 2010. The Ames building is still standing, but has went through massive renovation. Check out an earlier post on this store at

  1. WOW!! Night and day difference.

  2. Ames closed in Oct/Nov 2002 not 2003

  3. I'm surprised that this Ames hasn't become an Ocean State Job Lot location like many former New England Ames locations have done.

  4. What I meant to say was that I was surprised that this former Ames did not convert to a Ocean State Job Lot in 2002 after it closed rather than siting vacant until Dollar Tree and Aldi's moved into the building in 2010.

    Many former New England Ames stores became Job Lots after the company went under in 2002. The former Ames in Walpole, New Hampshire became a Job Lots.

  5. This is now a Planet Fitness/Aldi/Dollar Tree/Closed Store
    Aldi and Dollar Tree were mentioned in this
