Convenience store planned for downtown Fargo
FARGO — Daily's Market, a convenience store offering groceries, greeting cards, over-the-counter medicine, health and beauty products and more, is expected to open in April at 216 Broadway in downtown Fargo.
The business is owned by Charlotte and Than Young. In 1990, Charlotte Young worked and interned at Metro Drug, a drugstore that did business for decades at 123 Broadway before closing in 2015.
"I just hope to fill a downtown void that is there right now. You can't even buy a pack of gum downtown anywhere," she said.
Young and her husband also own and operate a drugstore in Napoleon, N.D., a community about 170 miles southwest of Fargo.
They intend to establish the same small-town drugstore atmosphere at the Daily's Market.
"We want to be a convenience store without convenience store prices. I don't want people to pay $5 for a bottle of water. We want to keep prices in line like drugstore prices," she said.
The store will open in an event space previously used by Abovo, a marketing and design company doing business nearby. Daily's Market will have two entrances, one on Broadway and another in Roberts Alley.
