We want to you know that we understand that the world is a confusing place right now. We also understand if you don’t feel comfortable coming into the dining room to eat and enjoy coffee.

We also want to remind you that you can order online through bitesquad and have it delivered to you as well.

We appreciate your business. We are a small family run bakery and eatery and we wouldn’t be here if it were not for you.

Elbow Room & Roundhouse:

Dear Elbow Room & Roundhouse family,

During these uncertain times, we must all do our best to help ease the spread of the Corona virus (COVID-19). We have made the decision to close at 4:00 p.m. today (March 18) until further notice. We care about and want to ensure your’s, our employees’, and all our families’ well-being and safety. We will continue to monitor developments and keep you posted. WE ♥️ YOU BISMARCK & MANDAN! We will see you all very soon!

Exposure Boutique:

Due to the current public safety concerns, being a small business that is not a high priority shopping establishment, I’ve decided to close Exposure to the public for the near future.
As of now, all photo sessions are still scheduled, please do not bring extra people and take precautions before your appointment.
Burleigh Beard Co. products can be ordered online or pm, (701) 323 0036 – text or call for pick up. We truly appreciate all you bearded men who support us!
I’ll be working on the website to update products and giving sneak peeks of the updates for Studio 208. Your support from home is very much valued!
To say 2020 has been hard on me would be an understatement. Starting with Exposure being closed almost the entire month of January and another week in February due to the sewer pipes and water issues, then not getting any insurance (really should have thought more about deductibles and what not 5 years ago when I got the plan) and minimal compensation from the leasing management company, now here we are in a pandemic. This current issue is affecting everyone but is GREATLY impacting small business. Please be conscious of this for all small business. Support now from home and when things clear up, we will need your support downtown more than ever.
Please be good to your neighbors and yourselves, take extra precautions and stay safe and healthy!

Hello my beautiful Proximal People. I am often not the one doing our social media posts, but I felt that I had to be the one to communicate this decision. Our Burleigh County bubble has been burst and it is a matter of time before we see this hit closer to home. I thought I would hold out longer, but why? What does that prove and who does that potentially hurt? Proximal50 will be closed effective immediately and will be reassessed Sunday March 22nd

We are dedicated to continuing to help you even though our doors are closed. We have created a private group for members – see the link on our feed in a previous post -and nonmembers, there are options for you as well. We are also offering some sales on equipment purchases and rentals. Reach out to if interested and I will make sure you get what you need.

I love this business with all of my heart… but I love my community more. We will be here when the dust settles and I am so excited to show you what we have been working on.

I’m not crying, you’re crying….

It’s been one of those weeks for everyone across all industries and professions. After serious deliberation we have decided to suspend dine-in service until further notification.

Cody and Chris will be rockin’ take out orders only along with third party delivery (Doordash & Grubhub) for Thursday and Friday from 11:30 – 3:30. The cafe will be closed for dine-in. So if you are feeling crazy eating cold-cut sandwiches for the third day in a row give us a call and we will get you bialys for your whole crew.

The Toasted Frog: 

Bismarck friends – It is with heavy hearts that we make this announcement. Due to the COVID-19 situation facing our community, state, and country…… of today, we are temporarily closing our doors.

We love being a part of this community, and we are committed to coming back stronger than ever when things return to normal.

Our team has shed a lot of tears over the past few days. This is hard, and we know that it’s hard for you, too. We want you to all know that each bit of support that you’ve given us over the past few days has meant the world to us. If you would like to support us during this time, you can go to and purchase gift certificates online.

We look forward to the day that we can reopen and serve you again soon. Take care, folks.

Terry’s Health Products: 

Many of our customers are immune system compromised and/or elderly and are choosing not to leave their homes right now. Because of this we would like to extend the option of delivery for those individuals.

You can call the store at 701-223-1026, place your order and use a credit card over the phone to purchase. We will deliver between 12pm-6pm M-F. To reduce exposure we can leave packages at a designated place on your porch or of your choosing.

We will not charge any delivery fee for this service at this time, but do ask that only those customers that are truly in need and cannot leave the home opt for delivery at this time. We have limited staff to do these deliveries.

Thank you to everyone for your cooperation.

The Capital Gallery:

Temporarily Closed: For more information or to arrange a private visit call or text 701-220-3491

Unbranded Element: 

It is with a very heavy heart, that we write this post…?

Beginning March 18 2020, Unbranded Element will be CLOSED. Although, we have done everything in our power to make sure our store is safe for our staff, and our customers, and have not (yet) been mandated to close, we feel we have a responsibility to the communities we serve, and those at greatest risk! We will reopen when conditions have improved!!

In the meantime, we will continue to monitor the impact the Coronavirus (Covid-19) is having on our community, and state, as the news changes daily, and hopefully we can get back to business as usual shortly! Thank you for your continued patience, and amazing support! We truly appreciate each and everyone of you!! ???

However, while our physical store may be closed, our website, and social media platforms are always open, and we will still be working to bring you, fun, cute new arrivals, special deals, fun giveaways, and more. So, please stay tuned!

Everyone who has an order waiting for pickup will be contacted and if you place any future orders you will be sure to get them! No worries!

And last but not least…

During this incredibly difficult, and scary time, we encourage you to stay calm, think positively, be kind, and spread love to those around you!

Thank you, Jaime & Tina

White Lace Bridal & Formal Wear: 

As much as we would love this coffee and confidence graphic to relate to any other sunny Tuesday, we want to take some time today to give you an update on our position because of the situation COVID-19 is creating around the world. ⠀
First of all, THANK YOU, for supporting us and all small businesses in this strange time. This is uncharted territory for all of us. ⠀
Here are a few things we want to make sure we mention:⠀
– Due to the unknown nature of the next few months, we are encouraging customers to pick up any special order or layaway item we may be storing for you. We will have no control over if or when a mandatory shutdown could happen. We can hold onto your items if that is your preference, and as of right now we do plan to remain open unless a shut down is mandated by our government. We also are more than willing to bring items out to your car for pick up if they are paid in full, just give us a call ahead of time. ⠀
– If you are delaying or cancelling you event, please inform us ASAP. Our tuxedo rentals are able to be rescheduled. Any deposit paid are non-refundable if events are cancelled. All sales on gowns and special orders are final, this has always been our policy and we thank you for respecting our policies. ⠀
– We are limiting the number of customers allowed in the store, per the CDC’s recommendation. We ask that brides reduce the number of of guests they bring with to 2 people. Please take the CDC recommendations seriously, as we all play a part in social distancing. ⠀

Again, Thank you for your continued support. What do we need to be successful? We need you to continue to trust us – Share and comment on our social media – post a review or a shout out to your favorite dress consultant – know that this will pass and we will be stronger as a community!⠀

– WLB –

Whatever you are doing to stay well, your support of small businesses in downtown Bismarck is appreciated. As news is changing daily, please check Facebook pages and websites for up-to-date hours and news for businesses.
