Jack & Jill Runnings

In an auction on March 1, 2014, Runnings purchased the former Jack & Jill property that sits next to their current location in Hettinger.  

The Jack & Jill Grocery store closed their doors in December and spent a few months cleaning and getting items ready to sell.

“The opportunity to buy the Jack & Jill presented itself and we felt there was enough of a need for storage now and possible new opportunities to use the property in the future that an acquisition was the right thing to do,” said Dennis Jensen, Director of Marketing and Advertising for Runnings.

At this point in time, Runnings plans to use the former grocery store as storage.

“We have no long term plans for the property that we can speak to at this point,” Jensen explained.
