Mann’s Automotive Supply –
Mann’s Automotive operated four stores in western North Dakota, Minot, Dickinson, Watford City and Bowman. The business was started by Paul Mann and his son Kenneth in 1943. The Minot Store opened in 1955 in the Roosevelt Hotel Building on the corner of 2nd Street (Broadway) and 1st Avenue in Downtown Minot. In 1958, Mann’s moved to Highway 83 South, at 16th Avenue and Broadway. Mann’s had over 900 accounts including service stations, car dealers, repair shops, implement dealers and hardware stores. Mann’s stocked over one million parts and also had a complete automotive machine shop. Mann’s Automotive is now the home to Hedahl’s Auto parts.
