DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - A lack of workers in the western North Dakota oil patch city of Dickinson is forcing two longtime businesses to close.

KXMB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1CnTiWQ ) that the Bonanza restaurant closed Sept. 14, and Kmart is shutting down in early December. Both businesses have operated in Dickinson for nearly four decades.

Cash Wise Foods plans to move into the Kmart building next spring.

City Attorney Matt Kolling says that the downside to the city’s healthy economy is that unemployment is at 1 percent or less. Bonanza owner Robert Wade said he got tired of trying to find workers.
