Around Town -- July 26, 2013


From flowers and flair to daycare -- all this shows just how varied are the new businesses showing up "Around Town."

"This used to be a salon here for 40 some years.  We were able to purchase it from them and renovate it to still keep it a salon, along with bringing in women's contemporary clothing," says Carol Markovic, Co-Owner, Roots Boutique & Salon.

Roots Boutique and Salon in Bismarck is a boutique and salon -- in one.  "There's something here for everybody, which is really, really great.  When women walk in, they just start paging through the clothing, and I mean, it's classy and it's, some of it's, fancy and some of it's fun.  And it's trendy," says Alyssa Peterson, Roots Boutique Manager.

On the salon side, customers enjoy their own private hair styling room.  Plus, there's spray tanning.  

Roots is located on North 3rd Street next to Dan's Supermarket.

Though this business just opened, they're already near capacity.  Kids Imagination Daycare Zone -- also known as "K.I.D.Z." -- is a new daycare in Mandan.  Owners Paul and Danny Zimmerman have ten years of child care experience.  They explain why K.I.D.Z. is different.

"We're a smaller facility, so it's just more of a homey feel, but then you also have the capability do things that a center can do like go on field trips, do art and science projects.  We do have a full size gym, so that's a plus for the kids, especially in North Dakota being that it's so cold," says Danny.  In fact, today, the K.I.D.Z kids are on a mini-field trip at the park.

Crabapple Floral is moving from Grand Forks to Bismarck.  Right now, they're right in the middle of construction where they'll be located in with A Creative Outlet on East Main Street.

Owner Kelsey Ruhland tells KX viewers what they can expect:  "Our design is a little more contemporary than what you'd find in a usual floral shop in Bismarck.  I'm really hoping to surprise and delight people with what they can find in here as far as flowers.  You won't find just the same old roses and mums and daisies."

Watch for their grand opening celebration on September 5th.
