Business Beat

Posted: Updated:

Magic City Harley Davidson has been in Minot for more than 10 years...and it now has new ownership. Bill and Brenda Houim took over the business early in September -- turning a hobby into a business venture. The two have been riding for less than 15 years...but once they started, they fell in love, and now this is theirs! It isn't just a shop to buy a bike...but anything Harley -- and there is plenty...

(Bill Houim - Owner) "Clothing, accessories, service, wintertime store age -- and we will sell them a nice bike too!"

So what's his favorite bike here? All of them he says...a pretty good answer!

A bit of a change is coming to Dairy Queen on 4th Avenue -- and that change is that it will remain open throughout the winter months. It is a first for the family owned business...and to celebrate the year-round business, Orange Julius will be added to the DQ Grill and Chill -- a move coming soon to all Dairy Queens across the country.

Finally, Lowe's Printing of Minot has purchased Northern Trophy and Engraving. Lowe's has been in Minot for 57 years...and Northern has been family owned for 22 years -- and now shifts to another family and under this roof just off North Broadway. Northern Trophy was owned by Pat and Jackie Limke...Lowe's Printing by Tom who carries on the work his parents started in 1955.

With Business Beat, I'm Perry Olson.
