What's The News In Watford City?

Fun surprises have been popping up on Watford City’s Main Street this winter. From a coffee shop to a children’s boutique, residents are excited about more unique shopping and dining experiences in town.

Open for business on January 26th is midwest franchise and locally owned burger and beer joint, JL Beers. Located across the street from First International Bank, this is a prime location to grab a quick burger for lunch, or sit down and enjoy one of dozens of beers on tap. In the summer, the patio will add more seating to the intimate atmosphere.

Celebrating their soft opening this week is Door 204 & Meyer’s Mail Service. The owner of Meyer’s Department Store took over the existing mail service and has redesigned the building in a unique decor to add a full coffee bar and boutique items.

As their baristas hone their coffee-making skills, now until January 25th they will be offering $2, 12 oz. drinks!

For now their hours are the same as Meyer’s, (10am-6pm) but they may have plans to open earlier in the morning as they get settled.

Just a few doors north of Door 204 on 228 N Main Street, is Beaver Creek Creations, a children’s boutique that moved to its new location on Main Street late fall.

Featuring handcrafted baby items, teething necklaces, Baltic Amber jewelry, stick horses, girls hair accessories, and Melissa & Doug toys,  Beaver Creek welcomes custom gift orders as well. This is a unique and adorable little store and a must-stop if you have little ones in your life!

There’s been a lot of buzz around town about B-Bonks, the new little bakery in town. This family owned business started out as a lemonade stand run by 16-year-old senior at Watford City High School, Rebecca. Rebecca’s baked goods were so popular that her family helped her open her own permanent shop, which opened this fall. Rebecca is still a student and is managing extra curriculars with running a business, so her hours at this time are limited, but she does take orders, which is great news, because her goodies go fast!
