Although I did not shop there frequently, I am sorry to see Ballards go out of business.  It is hard to compete with city supported competitors. I think that may be the last of the local businesses in Aggieville. Campbells is gone, Woodys is gone, the grocery store is long gone. 
Same is true for the entirety of Manhattan. The city has become a home to franchises….Its unique footprint is rapidly disappearing. It was a fun town when I first moved there. Sad.
