What does a thrift store, restaurant, professional organizer, and video and liquors store have in common?  Not much, except they're all featured in this week's "Around Town."

A Cause for Claws Thrift Store opens with the goal of putting profits to work purchasing a mobile clinic to support low-cost spaying and neutering.  "It's a really, really good cause.  It's a good thing for animals to be spayed or neutered, not only on the physical aspect, but also on the mental, for the people.  It helps the people, and the animals, and the community," says Lee Rittel of A Cause for Claws Thrift Store.

You'll find everything from dishes and collectibles, to furniture and books -- plus, save animal lives in the process.  For now, they're open Saturdays only, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., at 1222 Basin Avenue.  For more information, go to, or visit them on Facebook.

Oahu Hawaiian BBQ & Sushi Bar opens on State Street in Bismarck where you'll find Asian fusion cuisine, including Japanese and Thai -- with a Hawaiian state of mind.  "We are pretty excited that we have this new cultural restaurant in town.  We're getting a lot of comments, good comments, positive comments," says Kiky Rizky, Manager, Oahu Hawaiian BBQ & Sushi Bar.

The Manager says they have experienced employees, including a sushi bar chef who previously worked in New York City.  The restaurant has a full bar, which they say includes beers new to Bismarck.  

A place for everything and everything in it's place.  Julie Kinworthy turns her love of organizing into a business.  

"To me, it's really important that you have a system, because I can come in and organize somebody and a week later, it will be back where it was if I don't give them a system to work," says Julie of her business, Organized and at Peace.  However, she notes the reality is everything will not always be in it's place, but even kids can learn a system.

The owner of Adventure Land Video in Mandan is moving on.  After 28 years, Tom Berhow has sold his building.  However, he's not ready to retire and will continue his work with Mandan Schools.

Though the new business hasn't been announced, word has it, Mandan is getting a new beauty salon.

Coborn's, which operates Cash Wise in Bismarck, is purchasing the four area Captain Jack's stores, plus Bill's Liquor in Mandan.  Brothers John and Tom Miller, who built Captain Jack's from a single store, say Coborn's purchase offer was completely unexpected.

All 50 employees will be retained by Coborn's.  The Millers say while they don't know what they'll do next after Captain Jack's, they're feeling good knowing their employees and customers are in good hands with the Minnesota-based Coborn's.
