Uniform Center will be moving to a new location in Arrowhead Plaza.
The new location will be double the size of the business’ current location at 557 S. Seventh St. in Southridge Center.
“We’re way overcrowded where we’re at,” owner Sue Mathern said.
Uniform Center will move Aug. 29. The new location will have two seperate entrances. One entrance will be for the store’s 1,200-square-foot law enforcement uniform section. The other entrance will be for medical uniforms. That portion of the store will cover 3,000 square feet.
Mathern said the business also will be adding medical clothing lines Dickies and Ecko Scrubs. She said the Uniform Center sells uniforms across all of western North Dakota.

New insurance brokers
Stroh and Associates, an independent health insurance brockerage firm, has started operations in Bismarck and Dickinson.
President Sheyna Stroh started the business with Corrine Chapinski on July 1. Both women are former Blue Cross Blue Shield agents.
Stroh will offer her insurance consultation services to companies in Bismarck. She said she has worked with employer groups of all sizes. Working for Blue Cross Blue Shield she said she became viewed as trusted adviser by her clients but did not always have a lot of options she could provide them.
Stroh decided to start her own firm so she would be able to advise clients about products from multiple insurance companies and not be limited to a specific part of the state.

Disability support services
The Anne Carlsen Center is adding in-home disability support services to Bismarck.
Andrea Pena, community based services director for western North Dakota, said the organization is now accepting client referrals.
Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, but services are offered any day of the week. Services include in-home support, day support and autism support.
“It’s very important for individuals to be able to be in their home community surrounded by family,” Pena said. “Research shows they’re happier and healthier and function well in their own communities.”
Anne Carlsen Center providers will help people with disabilities with a number of things like finding jobs or establishing skills. They also can help people learn to shop for groceries, prepare a meal, do laundry or manage finances. Pena said the difference is people do not have to travel to a center for these services.
No permanent office has been opened yet in Bismarck. For more information call 701-751-3732.
