A Food Co-op in Regent, North Dakota

If you ever get to western North Dakota, be sure to visit the Enchanted Highway. It's a 32-mile stretch of two-lane road dotted with giant sculptures made from scrap metal, all on topics related to rural life in North Dakota. The road starts at I-94 and runs south to a town called Regent.

I'll post more about the sculptures (with photos) when I have a better internet connection, but today I wanted to tell about an added surprise at the end of highway.

The town of Regent is home to a food co-op.

Not only does it have a beautiful sign...

it's been in business for 74 years!

It's a full-service small-town grocery with the co-op difference: it's owned by the community, which probably accounts for the fact that it's still in business and offering such a full line of groceries.
