Ward’s Store & Bakery is for sale

After 39 years running Ward’s Store & Bakery, Patti Ward has made the hard decision to put the business up for sale. “I’ve made a very difficult decision with lots of prayers and the guidance of God to sell my historic family business,” said Patti. “In my heart I know this is the best thing to do for De Smet to revitalize with new blood. I will miss my business. I have worked at this store since I could read the numbers on the cash register. Our store has been in my family for 65 years.”
