National Grocery Store
The National Grocery Store was on the southwest corner of 2nd Street and 4th Avenue SW… the intersection now known as Burdick Expressway and Broadway. The Building was built to be a grocery store. After National Food closed, the building went through a number of owners and various businesses. For a short time after the National Grocery closed the building was home to a case lot, wholesale type store. The when the Ace Hardware Store on 1st Street in downtown Minot lost their building to the construction of a parking lot, it became Ace Hardware. The Scheel’s Hardware & Sporting Goods. In the early days of Scheel’s, they were more hardware than sporting goods. After Scheel’s moved out, Schlotsky’s Deli occupied the north part of the building. The other side of the building was home to Tom’s Home Furnishings, a smaller furniture store. Later, the building was purchased by and became the home of Zimmerman’s furniture, which is still there.
