BELOIT, Wis. — ABC Supply Co. Inc. will open its first North Dakota location — a store at 4119 14th Ave. N in Fargo — onAug. 18.

The new branch, managed by Ben Dahl, will carry a complete line of roofing materials including shingles and low-slope roofing products, siding and related supplies for professional contractors. Branch hours will be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturdays. The branch’s telephone number is 701-277-9920.

“North Dakota’s economy is very strong thanks to the oil boom in the western part of the state,” said Jim Welch, vice president of ABC’s Midwest Region. “Unemployment is very low, construction activity is up, and last year the new home market in Fargo was the strongest it has ever been. By locating our newest branch in Fargo, we are bringing the ABC Supply brand of superior service to the contractors who are working in this busy market.”
