There’s no such thing as fresh from Tim Hortons. They make the donuts in Canada, Freese them, ship them, then heat them up in stores.

Shady business dealing on top of that....

Anything for the gobc to keep the gas prices artificially high. Makes you wonder how some of the same vendors in GF can afford to sell gas 20 cents cheaper in Fargo. They must sell there for a loss :wink:

I like Tim Horton's but the ones in Canada are much better.

The PS Doors was spun off and sold to employees and Mr. Satrom kept PS Industries.

The spin off was mentioned in the article.

What used to be PS Doors, which is now PS Industries, has grown from 5 to 120 employees in manufacturing since 1994.

https://www.grandforksherald.com/business/manufacturing/4565391-PS-Industries-look-to-continued-growth-and-expansion

Which puts it in the same range or as a larger employer than Cirrus aircraft in GF.

If not yet, it will be. PS Industries has continually expanded its shop in the Industrial park. And each time they think "this is it, we'll overbuild now and be set for a decade plus." Only to run out of room a few years later. I think this might be the fourth or fifth time they've added on to the building now.

Bully Brew shut down

“We just outgrew our space where we were at on South Columbia Road. We’ve been roasting in that back room there for a few years. We were growing, and we need more space to bring in our beans and to store out beans that we’re roasting before they go out to stores,” said Bully Brew office manager Jessica Stroh.

They've done so well they've expanded into Fargo a few years ago.

Nope, opened up this summer.

edit: I should clarify.  They’ve had one for several years there. But they closed it, gutted it, remodeled the whole thing and added new vacuuming units as well.

Car washes, like storage units, are a "modern, easy" money making opportunities. 

The style of the proposed rydell one posted above, was "recently" opened in Fargo also.

That building is so ugly.  Needs to be torn down and a multistory building replace it. 

rooftop dining right there would be nice.
