First Western Bank and Trust celebrated a groundbreaking this month -- at a location where breaking ground has become pretty common. The next First Western location will be here on North Hill, at the site of the new Marketplace Foods location. Here is a look at what will soon be constructed here. It's a two story building with about 4 thousand square feet per level. That makes it plenty big for the insurance wing of First Western that will be found here. President Rich Campbell says that getting a presence on North Hill has been a wish for some time...
(Rich Campbell - First Western President) "We are really excited about that. I have been a North Hill resident for almost 40 years so it is nice to see all the development going on up here both commercial and residential and we at the bank are really excited about that."
The plan is to be wrapped up with construction and in the new facility by late 2014.
Also in Minot, just off Broadway on 11th Ave SW you'll find Image First. Teri Johnson and friends have been open for about a month now...and you'll find Image First to be a place to be pampered. They offer different beauty serves -- eyelash extensions, , facials, chemical peels, microderm abrasion, waxing...you name it, you'll find it here.
(Teri Johnson - Image First) "Our different specialties have come together and it was just perfect timing in a perfect spot."
