In Williston, the husband and wife team of doctors. Derek and Christy Fischer had opened Fischer Family Chiropractic. They are located at 226 West 14th Street. Christy is a Williston native...and after some time in the Twin Cities, it was a move back to Williston they were ready for...and are taking advantage of...
(Dr. Christy Fischer - Fischer Family Chiropractic) "With the economy in Williston there is such an influx of people so we have been really busy so far."
They each specialize in a different area...but compliment each other very well...
(Dr. Derek Fischer - Fischer Family Chiropractic) "She sees more of the women and children and pre-natal care and I see more of the sports injuries and males who come in here. Together we see lots of families and we like to take care of families."
They recently renovated their office as well giving it a much needed make-over.
In Minot -- on base -- at the Exchange a new, very busy business has opened this month. Floyd Lemere and his wife Charity have added Dakota Alterations to Dakota Pride N More, a gift shop they opened last year. Only open a few days, Dakota Alterations has already taken off fast...and expansion is planned.
(Floyd Lemere - Minot) "We started with one full time sewer and a supervisor and now we are adding a few more full time sewers and working it as we go now."
The gift shop keeps North Dakota products on hand...and they are very popular with a population that for the most part isn't native to the state...
(Floyd Lemere - Minot) "I have a lot of people who come here to visit their son or daughter and they will purchase something and all of a sudden they are contacting me to see if they can ship it south because they like it that much."
Both locations are open Monday through Saturday. With Business Beat, I'm Perry Olson.
