— Official News Release, Dakota Square Mall —

Minot, ND – (March 17, 2015) – Today officials with Dakota Square Mall announced a multi-million dollar renovation of the 815,000+ square-foot super regional shopping center. The project is slated to begin early April and to be completed mid-November.

Plans call for multiple enhancements including a new color palette of soft blues, grays and muted earth tones for the mall’s common area. The existing flooring will be replaced with new tile and carpet, and interior finishes will reflect the area’s natural beauty with looks of natural stone and wood.  Contemporary new overhead drum and pendant lighting will create a light, airy ambiance.   The food court will also be updated with new furniture and seating configurations designed for family and community dining. New soft seating will replace the mall’s wooden benches, creating ‘conversation’ areas perfect for relaxing and chatting with friends.  New planters and landscape will complement the exterior upgrades.

“We are committed to keeping Dakota Square Mall fresh and vibrant,” says Chuck Massey, the mall’s general manager.  “This is an exciting project which underscores our focus on delivering the premiere destination to shop, dine and enjoy an outing with family and friends.”A landmark in the region, Dakota Square Mall serves a wide trade area reaching across the Canadian border into the Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The mall was originally built in 1980 and expanded several times, including the addition of Barnes & Noble in 2008 and a new nine-Screen Carmike Cinema.
