Minot Shop Promotes North Dakota Pride

Posted: Updated:

Mom and pop shops help make each community a little more unique. From small operations to big businesses, over 500 members participate in the Pride of Dakota program.

Linda Johnson, the owner of Home Sweet Home in Minot, carries 50 to 100 of these vendors in her store.

“I’m excited every morning when I get up to come to work,” Johnson says.

Her excitement comes from being creative and promoting the good quality of North Dakota products.

“It’s getting a person to try something new that’s really good,” she says. “Something unique to North Dakota, and the fact that it’s made right here in the state.”

As Home Sweet Home customers are trying new things, so are the employees. They’re constantly learning about their products and sampling them. As the number one honey producing state, it’s no surprise that there’s a whole section dedicated to the bees.

“Honey is known to help your allergies when you’re moving to a new area. We can’t keep the honey on our shelves,” she says.

Pride of Dakota is the backbone of Home Sweet Home.

With a lot of new people moving to the area, she wants them to know how special the program is.
