Shark’s Men’s Store was a regional clothing retailer which opened its Bismarck location in 1937. The store was located at 4th Street and Main Avenue. Shark’s was started by Herman Shark in Devils Lake, ND. Herman’s eldest son, Leo Shark, owned and operated the Bismarck location as a separate enterprise. Shark’s also had a location in Minot.
NOTE: Bismarck Pride has been unable to get confirmation on the exact year Shark’s went out of business, however best approximation was in the late 1970s. It would appear that Shark’s merged with another store, Evan’s to form “Shark’s and Evan’s Men’s Store”, which was located within the parkade.
