The history of Johanneson’s Inc. goes back to the early 1950s, when Thelma & John Johanneson opened a small neighborhood supermarket in Fargo, North Dakota. The company has prospered over the years, growing from a small base of 26 employees to more than 1500 employees, with 23 retail operations throughout Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin today. Pace Development, a related entity to Johanneson, is the developer of the shopping center and residential apartments.

The Johanneson Companies bring decades of experience to their newest retail operation: "Marketplace Foods at NorthHill."
