Vintage Stock will take over the space of the Hastings store “going out of business” at 101 E. Best Ave.

Offering products similar to Hastings, Vintage Stock is a buy-sell-rent-trade company with movies, music, video games, comics, toys, sports cards and books. Based in Missouri since 1980, it has more than 50 locations and is buying other Hastings stores. Check

Several of the Cd’A Hastings employees will stay with Vintage Stock. The Hastings store will stay open until late October with hours 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Vintage Stock should open in late November.

Indoor soccer complex planned for Prairie

Three regulation-size artificial turf soccer fields and an indoor field for winter training are planned for a new building on 9.5 acres in the southwest corner of Prairie Avenue at Huetter Road.

Sting Timbers FC has 40 teams of about 650 boys and girls and hosts matches that bring about 350 teams from outlying communities. With completion anticipated in the spring, the new complex will expand the amount of matches and help area businesses.
