|Steve Barlow, founder|
The chain began with a single location in Minot, North Dakota, which had existed for some time before it was purchased by Iowa businessman Steve Barlow in 1976. The chain expanded in 1999 with the purchase of Minot's SunMart locations from the Nash Finch Company.
In 2002, a Barlow-owned Econofoods location in Bismarck was rebranded as a Miracle Mart, bringing the total number of locations to five.
In 2005, the three Miracle Mart locations in Minot were sold to the owners of Minot's Marketplace Foods, and they now have re branded to the Marketplace name.
