GRAND FORKS — An Ulta Beauty shop is coming to the Target shopping complex between Famous Footwear and Amy's Hallmark Shop on 32nd Avenue South in Grand Forks.

The new location will give those looking for makeup and other beauty supplies something new to look forward to, with the next-closest location being in Fargo. There are also locations in Bismarck and Minot in North Dakota.

The news is confirmed by business filings at the location for plumbing and mechanical work, as well as a fit-up, for the location.

It’s not the first time DEDCO has stepped in to try to save a local necessity in Drayton. In 2012, DEDCO completed a similar project to draw a restaurant back to the town.

Ulta Beauty, which was formerly known as Ulta Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, is a chain of beauty stores founded by Richard E. George, the former president of Osco Drug, in Bolingbrook, Illinois in 1990. The stores sell beauty products in 48 states as of 2019, and in 2021 Target began selling its products.

A message to the company's public relations department was not immediately returned on Monday afternoon.


There is no timetable for its completion or opening day.
