Wrigley: West Fargo Epic Companies Monitored, Investigated

Drew Wrigley

BISMARCK, ND (KVRR-Prairie Public) – North Dakota Attorney General Drew Wrigley says the situation with West Fargo’s Epic Companies is “disturbing.”

Epic owns and manages commercial and residential buildings throughout the region, notably The Lights and Sheyenne Plaza in West Fargo and developments in Fargo, Moorhead, Grand Forks, Perham, Jamestown and Bismarck.

The company recently laid off a number of employees and contractors owed money by the company say they have not been paid.

“It’s obviously a matter of great concern,” Wrigley said. “There are not always criminal offences, but if there is evidence of that, we will continue those investigations. Sometimes they are civil in nature.”

“In whatever category it falls, it’s worrisome in nature. It’s being monitored and evaluated and investigated.”

Wrigley did not provide details.

Several attempts were made to speak with Epic officials, but Epic did not respond to requests for comment.

Other firms have taken over management of Epic properties. Norsk Hostfest recently severed ties with the company and will move forward under its own management.
