Business Beat 1-16-14

Posted: Updated:

When a business with the name Main Street Books announces a move...you might expect a name change to come as well.

The good news for Val Stadick, the owner of Main Street Books in Minot, is that the move can keep the name in tact.

This is the current location on Main Street -- the business has been here for 8 years...but come next month, Val will move to the old Western Paint and Glass location just about a block north. Western Paint closed down late last year. The hope is to have this much larger space renovated and ready to go by February 1st for an opening here...and when it does happen, it will instantly mean more room for the growing business...

(Val Stadick - Main Street Books Owner) "We are just always running out of room. We will have more tables, and window displays and we will be able to host some larger events. Less meltdowns from children in a confined space! It will be good for families."

Main Street Books employs seven people now...and Val says that could expand with this move.

The grand opening was held today at The Home Depot. A large crowd was gathered for the event just a few hours after the store officially opened its doors this morning. Cutting the board -- not a ribbon -- to welcome The Home Depot to Minot was Mayor Curt Zimbelman. Store manager Jason Barker says a staff of over 100 had many new faces coming to the community.

(Jason Barker - Home Depot) "We had almost 40 employees who transferred up here from many different states and joined us on this journey.

Doors open at The Home Depot at six in the morning all week, expect for Sunday of course which has a noon opening. With Business Beat, I'm Perry Olson.
