Business Bites: Minuteman Metal grant opening; Klover moving; summer hours at The History Museum

Minuteman Metal

Minuteman Metal and Sign is hosting a grand opening 4-7 p.m. on June 14 at their new retail storefront at 815 2nd St. S.

The company is owned by Bill McDaniel, a veteran, and provides high quality metal art. McDaniel started the company after a friend encouraged him to step outside his comfort zone and take up metal art.

Now he’s expanding the business into the retail shop, which will be open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The shop will also stock the full line of soaps from Escentuals, another local company.


Klover is closing its current location at 505 1st Ave. N. on June 22 and reopening July 2 at 301 Central Ave.

The shop has outgrown its current location and the move coincides with their second anniversary.

The History Museum

The History Museum has launched summer hours and will be open Saturdays noon to 5 p.m. June through August.

Second Saturdays are Super Saturdays when the archives will be open to the public for research June through August.

Tamarack Brewing

Yes, we’ve heard the rumors that Tamarack is moving into the old Wells Fargo building downtown. We’ve been hearing that for a year and it’s still a rumor at this point.

Tamarack told The Electric in May that they’re thinking about a third location, but haven’t nailed anything down yet.

“We’re still just looking at locations and cities and dreaming a little,” they told us in an email.

We still check in periodically and will let you know if that changes.
