She loved the store before she owned it...that's why Pam Karpenko is so excited about the opening of Mainstream Boutique. You'll find Minot's Mainstreet Boutique downtown...and the doors open for the first time tomorrow. Karpenko says the franchise was one she has been fond of, so bringing it to the Magic City is a dream come true. You'll find Mainstreet Boutique at the corner of Main and Central downtown. Inside, a trendy selection of affordable women's clothing and other items.

(Pam Karpenko, Mainstreet Boutique) "They let us be who we are. We are unique. Each person or individual who owns it gets the opportunity to bring in all the clothing and merchandise and fashions that we choose. We get to be who we are in our market which is really cool."

The doors open tomorrow at 10am for the first time.

Plaza has a new Farmer's Union Oil location...and where it is located has proven to be a big improvement. The old location was in town...and that didn't work for many of the big trucks that frequent the western ND roads now. In November, this new location on the outskirts of Plaza was opened up. Grace Simonson says it has been very well received...mainly because the move has made it easier for folks to reach the facility.

(Grace Simonson, Farmers Union Oil, Plaza) "We have a lot of truckers who come in and have decided that this is a great place to come because it isn't downtown. There was too much congestion and they can come in with their full tankers."

They also added Hot Stuff Pizza, and more food offerings...an improvement on what the old location offered. With Business Beat, I'm Perry Olson.
