When dealing with anything to do with your heart you are playing a very dangerous game. My husband recently had to go for a stress test at the Iowa Heart Center In Fort Dodge. When he first told me I was scared that there was something wrong with my husbands heart. He went for his test and they were great. The explained everything they were going to do and and after what he needed to do. We were very blessed that everything came out just fine and we know where to go if there is another need for their services.
Gamestop Has not been open that long but they have a great selection of Video games ( For Many of the popular video game systems ), movies, and video game assoscories.

You can take your used games or movies in and trade them in for something different. If you love movies and or video games this is definitely a place to make a stop.

Living in Gowrie, we are about 30 miles away from a town that has automotive repair so having Mundts Service center here in Gowrie is a life saver. They do great work and their prices are great also. People would think with a business being this far out, that they would assume that the prices would be high, but they do not take advantage of the public and serve them well.
