About Dan's Supermarket

Dan's Supermarket, originally known as Bismarck Super Valu, got its start in 1949. Eugene "Bus" Leary and Roy Rockstad opened the first store, which had a small refrigerated food section limited to meat, eggs, and dairy items. A second store opened in 1960, and the third supermarket launched in 1970.

In 2013, SpartanNash Company purchased the Dickinson area Dan's Supermarket stores. Two years later in 2015, SpartanNash purchased the remaining stores. Then-CEO Dennis Bosch and chairman of the board Terrance Rockstad announced their retirements after more than 40 years with the Dan's Supermarket chain.

SpartanNash is a Fortune 400 company that operates more than 155 corporate-owned retail stores throughout the Midwest. These stores place a high value on providing customers with fresh local produce, affordable wellness products, and great weekly deals. The company also prioritizes socially responsible management and implements mindful measures to reduce energy consumption and minimize waste.

The SpartanNash vision of corporate responsibility also emphasizes local relationships and products, volunteerism, and diversity and inclusion. You can help support these missions through your purchases.
