Business Beat: A&B Pizza, Sidelines, & The Foundry

A long standing business in the community gets a facelift, while another is closing it's doors.

Alexus Arthur reports in this week's Business Beat.

A&B Pizza has been standing for 49 years and has gone through 4 generations of ownership and this year the business went through major renovations.

The owner said that it was time for a clean up and that's when the 2 month project began.

Now that the renovations are finished, customers can enjoy the same food and join in on a NFL package.

Since the re-opening business has been up 40% and the owners hope that business will continue so they can serve another 49 years.

Old, handmade, new --- that's what owner, Rachael Walv says about her business, The Foundry.

It's a store with a little bit of everything for home decor.

Walv says that she enjoys taking ordinary items and making it into something that anyone could use.

The store also offers a line of clothing, candles, and snacks. The idea at the foundry is to find you're perfect item.

"So I try and find unique products that are exclusive to the store. You won't find them anywhere else in Minot." said Rachael Walv, The Foundry Owner.

The Foundry is also having workshops for people to learn how to make their old items into something new.

Update: KX News spoke with the new owner. He says Sidelines will keep its name and is asking current employees to re-apply for their jobs.
