Business Beat: Northern Plains Locksmith, Allure Salons, & Foot Golf


A mobile business moves into a permanent location, another spot let’s stylists run their salon, and there’s a new game to play in town.

Alexus Arthur has Business Beat.

It started mobile but as business picked up, Northern Plains Locksmith moved into a permanent location.

Now located on South Broadway, the locksmith can do more jobs on the go and in store.

There’s no lock that they can’t unlock — people can bring safes, door locks, or anything that has a key.

But if you aren’t able to make it to the permanent location, the mobile service is still available.

“It’s just added bonus for people in Minot and surrounding areas to come in here, bring their stuff in.” said Robert Johnson, Owner.

It’s all about you… what you want and how you’d like to look.

Allure Salons recently opened in Minot. It doesn’t look like your average salon.

When you walk in the doors, you’ll notice separate rooms.

Stylists rent out one of the 23 rooms and it becomes their own salon which includes granite countertops, cabinets, and a beverage cooler.

The stylists get to run their own business, bring in their own clients, and make their own schedules.

“I just love the environment like it’s very quiet and peaceful but like obviously modern and updated and it’s just so beautiful here.” said Molly Mantz, Stylist.

Only six of the 23 of the rooms are filled, so if you’re looking to start on your own visit for information on how to get your business started with Allure.

A new addition has been added to the Mandan Municipal Golf Course.

And it’s something everyone can enjoy, foot golf!

It combines soccer and golf.. for a fun.. faster paced version of the traditional game.

You never have to worry about picking the wrong club.. because your options are between your right and left foot.

And if you’re still not convinced.. it’s just $10 to enjoy a day on the green.

I think this is just one of those things where no one in North Dakota has anything like this. So Mandan is the first. We’re glad to have it.”

The mandan municipal golf course stays open until we see snow. For Business Beat, I’m Alexus Arthur.
