Though the work needed to prevent water from entering the business was completed a few months ago, the Mandan Diner and Soda Fountain will not be reopening.

The business, which was located on Main St. in Mandan, had been closed since December, due to mold issues created by the water entering the building.

Mandan Diner and Soda Fountain owners Susan and Dave made the announcement via their Facebook page:

According to The Bismarck Tribune, the owner of the building, Robert Gustafson, plans on having the building disinfected and cleaned to remove any of the mold that may have been left behind. He plans to have this done before new tenants move into the building.

If you have unused gift certificates to the Mandan Diner and Soda Fountain, the business will issue you a refund. You can mail the unused certificates to the address contained in the Facebook post above.
