Discounts at Main Street businesses for annual Dollar Days – Iowa State Daily

ADVERTISEMENT

Main Street is home to many unique local businesses and supporting them is a priority for the Ames Chamber of Commerce.

To get rid of extra inventory after the holidays, many companies hold sales Thursday through Sunday for Ames Dollar Days. Free parking is available on Saturdays.

“I can’t tell you how long we’ve been doing it, but it’s been many, many years,” said Crystal Davis, executive director of programming for Ames Main Street and Campustown. “It’s really just to help our businesses.”

Any store in Downtown Ames is welcome to join and set their own discounts. Davis recommends that shoppers start on Thursday and Friday evenings, as stores will open later than Saturday and Sunday.

“This is a good way for stores to move some merchandise, and [the event] kind of gives people a reason to come back to Downtown,” Davis said.
