A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to all the readers of the Edinburg Website. I hope 2018 brings you everything you wish for.

 

Welcome to Edinburg, ND!

 

MARKET ON MAIN - A SMALL TOWN STORE WITH BIG VALUE FOR THE COMMUNITY.

Thank you for supporting the fundraiser. Replacing old, inefficient coolers is our latest effort to reduce overhead. Lowering overhead is continuing, but has its limits. Many overhead costs are the same whether the customer base is 5 or 500,

Our goals are to lower costs and increase sales. In orer to make breaking even possible, people need to use the store more. Some familys are using the store little or not at all. SALES NEED TO EQUAL EXPENSES.

The choice is yours: KEEPING the store means USING the store. Here are some good reasons to do your shopping at home.

* Home values are greater when a community has a local grocery store.

* Health and wellness are better when a community has a local grocery store.

* Community life (senior meals, church functions, Ribfest, community fundraisers, for example) are facilitated by our local store.

* Local stores are convenient.

* When one business goes, the others suffer.

* Our store has prices competitive with other small stores. Efforts are being made to reduce prices as much as possible.

* Fresh meat and fresh baking can be found.

Please shop locally to keep your community store open. At least $25 - $50 per week per family can maintain your store.

Market on Main Board of Directors: Marji Jonasson, Charles Mielke, Vera Brandvold, Ruth Hall and Loretta Monson.

 

Northeast North Dakota is a well-kept secret, especially the little town of Edinburg. It sits on the edge of the fertile farmland of the Red River Valley and the prairies of the west. Edinburg has a population of about 190 people with the drive, dreams and heart of cities 10 times its size. Edinburg could be a "throw-back" to the 50's with its pristine cleanliness, manicured yards and well-kept homes, but it is most definitely planted in the 21st century with citizens who strive to keep Edinburg very much alive!

Edinburg is a great place to live!
