Around Town takes you inside two just-opened Bismarck stores.  Plus, here's a sneak peek into a seasonal favorite that opens tonight.  

Dunn Bros Coffee opens at Skyline Crossing near the North Walmart.  In addition to fresh brew, they have baked goods and sandwiches.  You can enjoy all this near the fireplace or reserve the private conference room.  You might also catch owner Bitsy Coe roasting beans right there in the shop.  

If you don't have time to stop inside, you can cruise thru for your brew.  Dunn Bros also features handmade items from Belove Boutique.

"Where L.A. meets North Dakota," that's the theme of Apricot Lane, which just opened at Pinehurst Square.  "I was looking for something where mom and daughters could come in and really enjoy a shopping experience together.  I have daughters, as well, so the younger daughters help me buy. So I buy for my generation and they buy for theirs," says Loni Bienek, Owner, Apricot Lane.

The store also features some items that benefit education.

If you have a special event, they'll host a fashion show and provide beverages and hors d'oeuvres in store.  Apricot Lane's grand opening is November 1st, when they'll offer 20 percent off everything all weekend long.

Seeds of Hope Christmas elves have been busy all year, and though it's not yet Halloween, "The Christmas Store" premieres -- tonight.  

"We hold nothing over from year to year.  We start fresh and people are very generous in the community and it helps children of domestic violence and families," says Dorinda Eckroth, Assistant Manager, Seeds of Hope.  Tonight is also the kick-off for the silent auction of certain special items.  

You can select your treasures from among this unimaginable array of Christmas now through the end of January.  The Christmas Store is open tonight - with cookies and coffee -- from 5 to 8 p.m., with regular Seeds of Hope hours thereafter.  They welcome your Christmas item donations throughout entire holiday season.

Another thrift store -- Cause for Claws -- opens tomorrow for a test run from 1 to 5 p.m. at 12th and Basin in Bismarck.  You can support animal welfare -- plus, catch some bargains in the process.
