Dakota Store Provides Business Opportunities

Posted: Updated:

Many local entrepreneurs rely on vendor shows to get their products to the public. But now the Dakota Store in Mandan is providing shelf space for up and coming North Dakota businesses.

"It's a good outlet for somebody to bring their product in here so that other people get to see it," says Sue Hoffman the owner of the Dakota Store.
 "Everything in our store is on our Facebook page where you can go in and shop right off our page"

Hoffman opened Susie Q's Craft Emporium three-years-ago at 211 W Main Street, and when a room opened up in the same building, she took the opportunity to showcase North Dakota made products.

Hoffman says she works with 40 vendors and is hoping to help more.

And across the river, you can grab a cup of joe while trying on some jeans at a new boutique.

"I just wanted something different that you come in here you go, 'oh my god, this is really neat this is something different,'" says Wanda Holte the owner of  Java Bean. 

Holte opened Java Bean to fuse her love for fashion and specialty drinks. And she even shares her space with a good friend.

"She had this for rent and said I should rent that from you, and then we kind of sat down and talked about it. I rented it from her, so it's kind of fun to be with her," says Sharon Krueger owner of Echo Clothes.

Krueger had to close the original Jamestown location of Echo Clothes for lack of business, but reopened in Bismarck. Both Krueger and Holte say the joint space helps fuel business.

Located at 1212 park Ave in Bismarck, the boutique owners say reasonable prices, and of course, coffee, are drawing in a lot of customers.
