In Harvey -- this is the old Tractor Supply Company...it has proven to be too small to handle more customers...and the stuff they are looking for.  With that in mind, it is time to open this -- a new building right next door that is nearly double the size.  Store manager Keith Holzer says they will go from 68-hundred square feet to 12-thousand-five-hundred here at the new location.  That of course means it is easier to bring in more goods...

(Keith Holzer - Tractor Supply Co. Store Manager) "We are going to enlarge our clothing to include women's clothing.  It will be many times bigger than what we had before.  We are going to expand tool and truck boxes and more specialty items like feed and pet foods we will expand that line even more."

Holzer says even in Harvey they are feeling some of the oil activity -- seeing many people traveling west for work and stopping in for products.

In Minot, Souris Valley Suites has officially opened their addition.  Another 47 rooms have been added making Souris Valley Suites the largest extended stay hotel in North Dakota with 136 rooms total.  The hotel is owned by Bakken Hospitality, LLP.

Finally -- a second Tutti Frutti location is ready to meet your sweet needs in Minot.  Not long after opening on North Broadway -- the second store...a much bigger version...opens tomorrow morning at eleven at 1700 South Broadway, right next to Qdoba.  More space means more offerings and a larger customer area...and oh by the way -- a chance tomorrow for someone to win free yogurt for a year!  

With Business Beat, I'm Perry Olson.
