Get ready to shop with reckless abandon; a new dollar store is coming to the Bismarck-Mandan area.

Affordable Shopping Coming Soon

The Five Below discount store will soon be opening in the Kirkwood Mall.

The announcement came out in a Facebook post on the Kirkwood Mall's page.

Five Below stores have a sort of cult following. People love the thrill of finding a good deal.

What To Expect

No, it's not an ice cream shop.

No, it's also not an arctic/winter gear store.

This store prides itself on having a wide variety of merchandise priced between $1 and $5, but keep in mind, there are items over $5 sold there.

Toys, candy, school supplies, phone and tech accessories -- you can find just about every odd and end at this store.

Don't feel bad for enjoying the small things in life, like a good deal. #Adulting

Beware: when you go into this store, it's impossible to come out empty-handed. I've never walked out of one without something I didn't know I needed in hand.

The thing about this store is that you never know what's going to be in there. The randomness is what makes it a sort of adventure.

Shopping at Five Below is like a prize counter at an arcade. It certainly brings out your inner kid.

According to, there are roughly 28 Five Below stores in North Dakota alone; they seem to be spreading like wildfire across the Midwest, and I'm not complaining.

Opening Date

We have yet to hear when the store will be opening, but stay tuned, updates will come.
