Business Beat: Williston, Bismarck, & Minot


This weeks Business Beat takes us to three different spots in Western North Dakota.

Bismarck, Williston, and Minot all have new additions to their communities.

Alexus Arthur has more.

Crystal Rock Healing features in natural products and natural stone jewelry. It can be for healing. They have not only products for personal use, but also for your pet. They make most of the products within the store and they also buy directly from the miners to obtain the stone. There is information on the package of the stones to say what the healing power it has.

Murphy Motors in Williston is no more.

“It’s just time for me to take a step back for my personal life instead of my professional life.” said Patrick Murphy, Williston Auto Partner.

The store is under new ownership and the new name is Williston Auto.

“This is a great location.” said David Billion, Williston Auto Manager.

A little bit of Murphy Motors will still be in the store as the previous owner is a business partner.

“We’re going to do great things going forward, we’re going to make things happen.” said Murphy.

It’s a new name, but customers can still find their perfect ride.

A taste of Italy is in the Oak Park Center.

“Marco’s Pizza is authentic Italian pizza.” said Nathan Heinert, General Manager.

Marco’s Pizza is across the country and offers a full menu of pizza, salads, subs, wings, and desserts.

“The doe is made fresh daily, the sauce is made fresh daily, all the food is prepped in the store.” said Heinert.

Sit down, pick up, or delivery — it’s your choice! 

“We just want to pride ourselves on taking care of every customer and leaving them with a highly satisfied experience.” said Heinert.

For Business Beat, I’m Alexus Arthur.
