Business Beat 5-15-14

Posted: Updated:

Summer is almost here -- a time for freedom for kids saying so-long to the classroom for a few months...and it can bring lots of freedom for many who may be getting behind the wheel for the first time! Making sure they do so safely is the goal of a new business -- ABC Minot Driving School -- privately run by Jason Schwarz. This car is outfitted with the tools to make sure the teens are learning safely...an accelerator and brake right at Jason's feet.

(Jason Schwarz - ABC Minot Driving School) "It is a school here primarily for teens who are at least 14 who are beginning their driving experience. They need to have their permit before they can do the school. It is one of the first steps for teens toward getting their drivers licence."

Jason has openings for ABC Minot Driving School -- and you can contact him at 701.500.9969 -- or on Facebook at ABC Minot Driving School.

An online business has become much much more this spring in Minot...a big leap for a local entrepreneur. This is D's Boutiques in downtown Minot on Main Street. Barbie McDonald is the owner and operator of the store...that has been in existence for a few years -- but online. About a month ago she made the decision to start offering lines of women's apparel with a store front as well. Just a few weeks in, business has been good -- downtown the perfect location -- and she says it looks like she made a good decision.

(Barbie McDonald - D's Boutiques) "At first I was really nervous...but now that we have it up and running I think it was a good and positive move."
