The Bismarck Home Depot opened in June 2005 to much anticipation; however, closed three years later amidst a flooded market containing Menards, Lowe’s, Runnings, Mac’s, and strong local competitor Kirkwood ACE.
In January 2010, a group of local investors purchased the building at auction for $3.475 million; however, plans to bring in another big retailer never materializes. Two hotels have since gone up on the parking lot, ending any hope of a major retailer in the building.
