In today’s Business Beat, small business owners can now set up shop at the Dakota Square Mall.
Vendor Village, a store that features handmade items from North Dakota businesses has moved into the old DressBarn location.
Space in the store is rented by vendors on a weekly or monthly basis.
Shoppers can find handmade clothing, woodwork and even take-home crafts.
The owner says the idea for a physical location has been in the works for over a year.
“Spaces or venues you can rent to do like even to do little parties or something like that are, you know, it’s a big expense to put out to just do like a one-time thing. So I was like, ‘Why do we not just create like our own little community of that where it’s, you know, year-round?'” Owner Hannah Haukedahl said.
Vendor Village is open during regular mall hours. To learn more, click HERE.
