Trade Talk: Mango’s giving Main Avenue a shot

Mango’s Mexican & American Grill is hoping a spot that hasn’t worked out for other restaurants will be a good fit in the new year.

The eatery opened under new ownership this fall after a couple of failed attempts by Jalapenos Mexican cuisine at 2901 Main Ave.

The new owners, Nazario and Michelle Porras of Winona, Minn., bought the restaurant this year and officially opened last month. The couple also runs a family-owned Mango’s in Winona.

Mango’s in Fargo offers happy hour specials and daily lunch specials starting at $5.

For more information, call (701) 232-4886.

Fan-inspired furniture

Whether or not the Bison pull of a win in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision semifinal today, fans can still show their green-and-gold pride in the living room.

Conlin’s Furniture in Fargo is selling La-Z-Boy Champ Bison logo recliners. Conlin’s will donate $50 of each purchase through Christmas Eve to the Ronald McDonald House in Fargo.

The chairs start at $699 and feature logos from North Dakota State University, the University of North Dakota, and most major college and professional teams.

Christmas shoes

The Fargo Running Company is collecting gently used running and walking shoes to donate to Churches United for the Homeless.

For each pair donated, customers receive a coupon good for $10 off any purchase of $50 or more through Friday.

For more information, call (701) 364-9503 or visit www.fargorunningcompany.com.

Snap Fitness moving

Snap Fitness will move its location in the SunMart Plaza near 25th Street and 32nd Avenue South to a new location at 1525 32nd Ave. S. in Fargo.

The new location will allow for added amenities, including group fitness classes and a new technology that allows members to participate in the class of their choice 24 hours a day.

For more information, call (701) 540-0740 or visit snapfitness.com/fargo4.
