MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Businesses in downtown Minot are keeping a positive attitude about street construction in the city.

The Minot Daily News (https://bit.ly/1rsVAmN ) reports that businesses are getting creative to bring in customers during a summer of construction.

Tiffany Lee is owner and manager of Charlie’s Main Street Cafe. Lee says she shares daily specials with construction workers and delivers meals to them.

Main Street Books set up an indoor reading and play area up front for a view of the construction. Kids can come in to dress up in hard hats and construction vests.

Gideon’s Trumpet owner Kay Eaton says the store is using 20 percent off coupons to keep customers coming back. Gideon’s Trumpet, like other businesses, is also offering vouchers to people who use one of two new downtown parking ramps.
