Town working to replace grocery store
MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — Mandan Mayor Arlyn Van Beek says city officials will work to recruit another downtown grocery store to replace one that’s set to close.
The Bismarck Tribune reported that Central Market is closing.
Van Beek said a grocery store on Main Street anchors the central business district and is needed. The mayor says the decision to find a new grocer ultimately is up to the private sector but the city will help by “making contacts or through economic development programs.”
A new Walmart Supercenter opened in Mandan in September.
