Redevelopment: Main Street Plaza Wheaton, Illinois


          Not a shopping plaza I am familiar with, but it had an Ames Department store, so I guess I have room to talk about it here. These are some old pictures considering the chain closed in 2002, and there is a Blokbuster Video next door.

These pictures are provided by The Ames Fan Club, a site dedicated to archiving the Ames chain. The specific link to these pictures are right here 



After Ames closed, turned into a Furniture Store.


Closed.

There is an Office Depot and Monkey Joe's in the former Ames store.
