Evsie opens Friday at West Acres, CJ's Kitchen owners publish cookbook and other business news
Dakota Business Lending has launched the Entrepreneur District, a shared work space meant to promote collaboration, on the second floor of their Fargo headquarters.
FARGO — Evsie, a store selling clothing and accessories for girls ages 7 to 14, will open Friday, Nov. 11, at the West Acres Shopping Center.
Evsie is a concept launched by the Duluth, Minn.-based Maurices chain.
West Acres Chief Operating Officer Alissa Adams called Evsie a "fantastic addition to the overall mix at West Acres" in a statement to The Forum.
"Their merchandise selection, catered towards tween girls, includes basics, trend-forward pieces, athleisure, accessories and more. The store is bright and inviting and features a wide-variety of easy-to-shop options and comfortable dressing rooms," she continued. "They are the perfect fit for a category that we’ve been light in for some time."
The newly remodeled Victoria’s Secret will re-open with PINK inside of their footprint on the 11th as well, according to Adams.
CJ's Kitchen owners publish cookbook
Owners of a popular south Fargo diner that closed in October 2022 have published a cookbook of the restaurant's favorite dishes.
Jan Ness told The Forum last month that she and her husband, Curt Ness, were closing CJ's Kitchen because they lost their lease at 1601 S. University Drive. She said they looked for other commercial listings, but that there wasn't anything available they could afford.
According to the book's description on Amazon.com , "'CJ's Kitchen Kitchen Favorites' is a compilation of recipes of the menu items that we made and sold every day at our restaurant. You'll find out how to make things like the Yummy Egg Bake or the Wonderful Tokyo Turkey Sandwich. Everything from how to make an Over Easy Egg to how to make the Sloppy Joe's you loved at CJ's Kitchen. I even included all the treats you loved. Like the recipes for the Rolo Cheesecake Bars and the Molasses Cookie. It's all in here - even My Grandmother's Knoephla Soup."
