Business Expands in North Bismarck

Posted: Updated:

Booming business is nothing new to Bismarck, and it doesn't look like it's stopping anytime soon.

In a few months, Bismarck will be adding a 250,000-square-foot space that will contain Dick's Sporting Goods, Gordman's, Bed, Bath and Beyond and Ulta Cosmetics, which are all firsts to Bismarck.

"If we're looking at someone who's going to relocate to Bismarck-Mandan from a different market a bigger market, if you don't have these amenities you might be used to and you have job offers in other places now it's a question if Do I go somewhere like Bismarck-Mandan and maybe they don't have a Costco or do I go somewhere and they do,"  says Brian Ritter the Bismarck-Mandan Development Association's director.

Ritter says new retail helps keep young adults in the community as well as provide thousands of jobs.

With more options, Ritter says Bismarck residents won't be the only customers.

"We're a regional economy, so we're drawing shoppers, visitors and business people from outside the market to Bismarck-Mandan everyday," he says.

The Sunrise Towne Center  is just one of the new strip malls coming to the area, and Ritter says these shopping centers make it easy to bring multiple retailers to one neighborhood.

"Having neighborhood centers where you got a lot of bodies in a defined area that you know are going to frequent your establishment that's going to help retailers locate to certain areas,"says Ritter.

The Sunrise Towne Center will include a Dan's Supermarket, Gee Williquors a large locally owned liquor store, BNC National Bank and a Gate City Bank to accommodate the new neighborhoods in the North.
