ND dealer closes doors after nearly 45 yearsRICHARDTON, N.D. — Wally Wald, one of southwest North Dakota’s longest-active farm equipment dealers, is closing the doors. Wald, 78, who lives in Dickinson, N.D., held an implement dealership auction Oct. 29 that was the end of the line for Richardton (N.D.) Farm Equipment Inc. The business was started by previous owners John Erdle and Ralph Messer in fall 1957. Wald had worked for Erdle and Messer for 10 years and in July 1977 bought the business with partners Chuck Forster and Glenn Hochhalter.
