Neosho hasn't had a Stage Store in several years. It closed in either 1999 or 2000. The location, on the east end of the Orscheln Builing on Harmony Street is still empty.

Thank you. I remembered that the Stage store in Neosho had survived the initial closing of a wave of Stage stores back when the company was in serious financial trouble. I should have checked. I have corrected the entry. Thanks.
