Construction Updates

Please Pardon our Mess. The Changes Will Impress!

Thank you for your patience as we work to renovate North Grand Mall. Check back here for renovation and construction updates.


Judgement-free zone coming soon.

Construction on Planet Fitness has begun in the former Younkers space. Anticipated opening for Planet Fitness is early 2020.

Updates on opening and membership can be found on Planet Fitness' website:

Just Announced! (11/1/19)

Pre-sale for Planet Fitness will begin on Monday, November 4 in the old Payless Shoe space.

Pre-sale times are as follows:
Monday-Friday 10 am – 7 pm
Saturday-Sunday 9 am – 3 pm


We are excited to bring B-Bop's to the north-side of Ames.

Construction has begun and will be next to Fazolis.

We will do our best to keep the entrance open during construction; however, if it is closed signs will be posted detouring cars around the construction.


The main entrance to the mall will be getting a complete face lift.

Anticipated construction will continue through the end of February — contingent on weather.

The entrance will remain open.

For your safety, a chain link fence has been installed around the entrance; our handicap door will not be affected by the construction.


A new building is being built on the North East corner of the mall, in front of JCPenney's.

The building will be approximately 7,000 SF with 3 retail/restaurant bays. A drive thru is planned for the building.

Please note: the City of Ames required a sidewalk to be installed off of Grand Avenue. This sidewalk installation is directly in front of the mall along the burning bushes on the north side of the main entrance drive.

The first 4 rows of parking will be closed during sidewalk installation; the 6 handicap stalls will be temporarily moved to the West of Walgreen's.
