Business 1: Tractor & Equipment

This family owned and operated business started out as a blacksmith shop in Sidney, MT in 1929! They are known as The Cat Rental Store, but they also deal in Caterpillar and other heavy equipment (sell and rent). 

We learned they will consign your equipment and help advertise it for you! They also rebuild equipment.

 Their team’s favorite thing about work is the people they interact with:  “Our employees and customers become like family.” They truly miss being able to get together with friends and family at a local establishments.



Business 2: Walt's Market

The original owner of this community staple opened shop in 1942. The current owner changed things up and reopened in 2018. The store is well known for fresh meat, great customer service and amazing smokehouse items, but they would like customers to know they offer custom meat cutting and their meat is always fresh, rather than frozen. These days, they have a lot more to offer than just meat, too.

Their favorite thing about coming to work is interacting with customers and getting to know them. They miss seeing families and kids in the parks and seeing people hug and enjoy spending time together.

This business is haunted! The current owner has caught the original owner checking in on them from time to time on the video cameras.
