Longtime Iowa City Business To Close Its Doors
A store that's been open at their location on Highway 1 in Iowa City for 37 years, is closing their doors this summer. The website for Paul's Discount calls them "Iowa's largest home-owned discount store." The news is sending shockwaves through eastern Iowa because the store seems to have everything.
Paul's Discount is one of those stores you love to stop in just to look around. You don't necessarily need something specific when you walk into Paul's. However, you ALWAYS walk out with something. Paul's was one of the first stores that seemed to have everything you could ever need. As a matter of fact, as their website says, "If you can't find it at Paul's, then you don't need it."
A liquidation sale is expected to begin soon with the store closing for good around the 4th of July. Iowa City realtor Ryan O'Leary says the 36,000 square foot building will eventually become home to between six and eight different businesses.
At this time, the Clinton store isn't expected to be affected by the closing of the Iowa City location.
