Inside Business: Montana Furniture and Mercantile

Posted: Updated:

A one of a kind shopping experience is now open in Bismarck. John and Teri Severson opened Montana Furniture and Mercantile in the Gulch Block building in downtown Bismarck. It's the second location for this Minnesota-based store.

Two things potential customers at Montana Furniture and Mercantile need to know are that it is located in downtown Bismarck, not Vail or Jackson Hole, and yes, the construction is finished and the store is open.

"People have been waiting for the store to open.  It's been a long construction process," says John Severson.
And once they're inside, they will find practically anything they're looking for, and a lot more.

"Most everything we build in the store is done out of reclaimed woods, refurbished woods.  We buy a lot of barns," says Severson.

Severson and his wife are also pickers, finding and buying one of a kind accent items at sales all over the country. Many of the items are vintage, hand-crafted or simply have a story to tell.

"You can come to the store and find very cool stuff, lamps or gift items.  A lady was just in here yesterday and said this is the Christmas present for my mom and dad," says Severson.

Severson says Montana Furniture and Mercantile is much more than just a furniture store.  It's also part art gallery, featuring works by noted European and Western artists.

The products are in high demand, especially by those building log or timber-frame homes who are looking for decor that captures the essence of the western prairie. And the store is unique to North Dakota.

"People are doing what North Dakota is all over the US and we come to North Dakota and what we do, we don't see a lot of it here.  We're excited to bring that element," says Severson.

He says he's met a lot of people at art shows around the country who are building in western North Dakota, and after doing his research, decided Bismarck was the perfect place for this store.

One of the signature pieces Severson offers is a hand-made rocking chair. Each one takes two months to create, and it's in high demand.
