On June 30, 2016, after 126 years in business, Varneys shuttered its doors to all three of their locations. When asked about the closing of Varneys, CEO, Aaron Liebert replied, As a small, Kansas business ourselves, we were saddened by the closure. Nobody likes to see a local, family business close, even if they are your competitor. The demise of the book business caught a lot of retailers around the country.
EMAW and Rally On, Aggieville!
The new Rally House Aggieville store will be located in downtown Aggieville where the now-closed Varneys bookstore resided. Though the name and management is new, Rally House is excited to offer a familiar product selection and assortment to Manhattan residents and KSU students.
You'll find a great selection of Kansas State Wildcats t-shirts, hats, jerseys, gifts, and more. In addition to all the KSU gear you'd expect to find, we'll have a limited selection of other area teams like the Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Chiefs, and Sporting KC.
From Our CEO
Rally House CEO, Aaron Liebert, Were very excited about the opportunity to open in Manhattan. Obviously we have big shoes to fill. Varneys was an icon in Aggieville and beloved by all. Even though we have been selling K-State merchandise for twenty years, we had intentionally stayed away from Manhattan because Varneys was the institution.
From Varneys Owner
Similar sentiments were echoed by Jon Levin, the former owner, Im very pleased that a retailer is going in and that it is a retailer as strong as Rally House its going to be good for Aggieville and Manhattan.
