So much has taken place for Dave and I that I'm a little late in getting our February note out. What has consumed our time? I'm glad you asked. For the last several weeks, Dave and I talked about the future of our sweet little boutique here in Bottineau. In the end, and after much research, we decided to open a second store on North Hill in Minot.
Our new store location is 1700 21st Ave. NW, Minot in-between a Subway and a Caribou coffee. If you happen to be in the area, come check out our progress. Our goal is to have the grand opening on May 1st, which is also the one-year anniversary of our original store here in Bottineau.
If it is possible to feel excitement and fear all at the same time that's definitely what's going on with me. I will continue to be the Pastor at United Parish and Dave will take on the responsibility of managing our Minot location full-time. And I'm sure we'll need to hire a few part-time people as well. How will the second store affect our boutique in Bottineau? In many wonderful ways. By having a larger second location we will be able to provide more variety in our hand selected products.
Our goal is not only finding quality and value in the products we bring to you, but also, that they are innovative and foster creativity. We hope the toys and products we carry provide real fun and encourage the entire family to play.
