The new Dan’s Supermarket at Sunrise Town Centre is now open, becoming the company’s sixth location in Bismarck-Mandan. The new store anchors the new Sunrise Town Centre mixed-use development in northeast Bismarck, near the intersection of Centennial Road and Century Avenue.
Dan’s is the second retailer to open at Sunrise Town Centre, following Gee Williquors, which opened last month. Other planned establishments include Caribou Coffee, a Clark convenience store, BNC National Bank, and Gate City Bank.
As with a few other Dan’s locations, Gateway Pharmacy is also housed inside the store.
About Dan’s Supermarket
Dan’s was founded in 1949, as Bismarck Supervalu, when Roy Rockstad & Eugene “Bus” Leary purchased the local Piggly Wiggly. The first “Dan’s” location opened in 1953 at Arrowhead Plaza, which remains today. Over the years, the company has expanded, not only across Bismarck-Mandan, but also to additional cities, including Dickinson and even outside of North Dakota. The company has since consolidated its operations to focus on its core market. Dan’s added its fifth local location just over a year ago after purchasing the Bismarck Central Market store.
Interestingly, Dan’s is not named after a real person. It was created as a marketing gimmick to coincide with the “Dan the Savings Man” campaign.
