TRADE TALK: New restaurant hoping for good karma

Karma Indian Cuisine has opened at 1340 21st Ave. S. in Fargo.

You’ll find it inside Vista Inn & Suites, though the businesses are independent of each other.

Karma offers a variety of East Indian dishes, said Jano Ddin, a partner in the business.

Ddin suggests newcomers sample the Karma Appetizer Plate, which features veggie and nonveggie temptations, or the Bombay Chat, “which is really popular on the streets of Bombay,” Ddin said.

For those with a taste for something with a little more bite, he pitched the Paneer 911.

“It’s really spicy,” Ddin said.

The restaurant is open seven days a week.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for the buffet) and 5 p.m. until 10 p.m.

The phone number for the business is (701) 235-0664.

Collecting good will

The semi-annual Goodwill Sale, a partnership between Goodwill Industries International and Bon-Ton Stores, which operates area Herberger’s stores, collected nearly 3 million pounds of clothing and textiles during its spring promotion.

The items, with an estimated value of $17 million, will be sold at Goodwill stores, with the revenue funding job training programs and community based services.

Donors received coupons for each donation, which can be used at Bon-Ton and Herberger’s stores.

‘Maximized living’

Freedom Chiropractic Health has opened at 4342 15th Ave. S., Suite 104, in Fargo.

It is operated by Jake Schmitz, a maximized living doctor of chiropractic.

“There are about 400 to 500 of us across the country,” he said, referring to the “maximized living” approach to health.

“Our whole job is to change the way people view and manage their health,” he said.

“How that works is through nutrition, exercise, detox, coaching on mindset and correcting the spine,” Schmitz said. “Those are the five essentials of health.”

Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday; and 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

For more information, call the business at (701) 356-3242.

Support recognized

Three area employers will be honored Tuesday for their support of employees who serve in the military.

The Fargo Police Department, Bobcat and Simplex Grinnell will receive the “Pro Patria Award” from North Dakota’s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve during a luncheon that will be held at the Fargo Air Museum.

The event will also spotlight the signing of a statement of support by Scheels All Sports that acknowledges the company will recognize, honor and enforce the employment rights of their employees who serve in the military.
