Bowman's helpful place: Newby’s Ace Hardware fills a void, sees success with 2nd location

BOWMAN — If there was something Bowman needed, it was a hardware store.

At least that’s what customers tell Ben Olin, general manager of Newby’s Ace Hardware, located in the city of 1,650.

“I still haven’t gone a complete day without somebody thanking me for being here, telling us how much they appreciate the store, how big of a selection we have,” Olin said. “I hardly hear anything negative about the store or anything period.”

Hi. I'm the assistant editor of The Dickinson Press and I'll be your tour guide. I grew up on a ranch 10 miles southeast of Belfield, or 10 miles southwest of South Heart. I was right in the middle. Anyways, my family raises registered Hereford cattle on the ranch, where I learned a lot of valuable lessons. I went to school at Belfield Public School, graduating in the last class as the Belfield Bantams. I then double majored in communications and history/political science at Jamestown College. After three years of working for the now University of Jamestown's newspaper, The Collegian, I joined the staff at The Dickinson Press as the Dickinson City government and energy reporter. I moved on to the Hazen Star and Center Republican as an editor before being pulled back to Dickinson. And here I am. As someone that grew up and lived in North Dakota for 25 years, I never thought that our corner of the state would ever change. But time has a way of proving me wrong. In the midst of one of the largest oil booms that state has seen I get to watch it all and tell everyone about it. I can't wait to see what happens next.
