Home Depot Opens in Williston

Posted: Updated:

Today was the grand opening of the brand new Home Depot in Williston. Residents will no longer have to travel hours across the state to purchase supplies.

People came out to the store to check out the products and get to know the staff. For many, this new home depot will make their lives a lot easier.

"I'm very excited because the few stores that we do have are way overpriced and we have to run four hours to Billings or three hours to Minot to get to Home Depot. It's going to be very nice having one locally," says general contractor John Martin.

Home Depot is just as thrilled to be in Williston as the residents are to have it here.

"We are really excited for the opportunity with all the building and construction that's taking place in Williston. But more importantly than just supplying products to the builders, contractors, and do it yourselfers at home. We are anxious to be a part of the community. We want to be a business partner, help out with schools, parks and that kind of thing as well," says Manager Kevin Beardsley.

Mayor Howard Klug explained how this grand opening signified positive changes in Williston.

"Something like the Home Depot has so many different varieties of products, and to be able to bring those in overnight will keep some folks in town. This is one of the things we talked about, putting stores in town so people don't have to go to a different market," says Klug.

While the store is only 6,000 feet in size, they can have products shipped over from the Minot branch within 24 to 48 hours.
