View Full Version : What do you think will go in the Cosby Ranch building?

The Mustang City Mgr has contacted a couple of steak houses but my guess is Country Equipment or someone like that will move there.

I thought a restaurant of some kind might do well just down the street from the new armory.

I read that a food truck was seeking a permit to operate in Mustang. The application is pending. I believe this would be like the mobile canteen truck that serves the West Reno Avenue area.

My guess is it will sit vacant for awhile, just like the ACE hardware store. Its just not a good time to start a new business. Too bad, it's a nice building.

I wish they would put in a semi nice restaurant, there. It is not far from the house. I hope a Country Equipment doesn't go there, actually. Pioneer is right down the street and there are some other similar stores in the area.

I moved out of the Mustang area a few months ago, how come the Cosby Ranch went down? I bought chicken feed there, I thought they were doing fairly well.

I don't "actually" know why they went down but I could get whatever I wanted at Dawson's Feed or Tractor Supply, cheaper. It seemed more like a gift shop than a farm equipment/feed store. I liked it but I didn't shop there for anything but coffee mugs and knicknacks. The western decor only appeals to so many people.

I was confused by their business model. Nick-nacks and chicken feed? Brick-a-brack and cow pens?

The couple that owned it got a divorce and sold everything....

Too bad. Well, the disconnect between the two of them might be the reason for the ecletic business model. I hope things go better for them. You hate to see a dream die and they put a lot of work into that building.

The building became a private school

It's too bad Ace Hardware closed, it was much easier to get things we needed there, and kept us away from the madhouse at Wal-Mart. The Cosby Ranch building is nice, probably too small for a real farm/ranch store. I went there during their Grand Opening. I couldn't make sense of it all. It was like an Atwoods combined with Lorec Ranch, with a 20% markup to cover their overhead.

Not good news about that school.
