ChiroSport has opened its fourth practice specializing in sports medicine in the Sioux Falls area. Chiropractor Joel Martens provides service at the Hartford office, 700 N. Vandemark Ave. It’s open weekdays with appointments as needed on Saturday.
Perkins Restaurant & Bakery is adding a location on the east side of Sioux Falls. Construction is expected to start in April on land along Arrowhead Parkway in front of Menards. It will be the first Sioux Falls restaurant for franchise owner Jim Rahfaldt, who has 15 Perkins locations in six states.
Bloom has opened in Park Ridge Galleria at 26th Street and Western Avenue. The indoor play center for child development is aimed at ages 2 through 8. It features a “tiny town” for dramatic play and a ball pit, monkey bars, climbing wall and 12 rotating swings for motor skills and sensory development. Owner Andrea Boerigter is a pediatric speech and language pathologist and also moved her practice there.
Huron-based American Bank & Trust is acquiring Farmers State Bank, which has locations in Carthage, Iroquois and Stickney. With the acquisition, which is expected to close in the second quarter, American Bank & Trust will exceed $800 million in assets and 145 employees. It expanded into the Sioux Falls market in 2016.
Citing a lack of funding and support, Downtown Sioux Falls Inc. is no longer operating a trolley service. The downtown organization began taking over the service four years ago when the city phased it out. The city owns the trolleys, and DTSF has funded and marketed the service. Stellar Limousine was contracted to run it.
The newest food truck in Sioux Falls, Kabab King, features Middle East flavors cooked up by owner Moe Fares and his son, Firas. During the day, the truck is parked at Graham Tire at 41st Street and Western Avenue. It’s out for the late-night bar crowd and will be at events this summer.
Shindigs has moved and expanded its offerings. The Brandon business opened a year ago as a host for birthday parties and other gatherings. In its new location on East Cedar Street, Shindigs has added after-school and summer recreation programs and a Club Kids membership.
After closing when its building was demolished last year, Lalibela Restaurant is coming back. Owner Mulugeta Endayehu will renovate the former Bargain Butcher space at 200 S. Kiwanis Ave. An opening date hasn’t been set.
The owner of Younkers is planning to close The Empire Mall store in June unless a buyer is found. The Bon-Ton Stores Inc. filed for bankruptcy in February and notified state officials in early April of plans to close the store.
The Log Cabin has been closed since owner Jerry Adams died last month, but his friend Dusty Foltz is trying to save the neighborhood bar. Foltz and his wife, Julia, plan to lease the building at 1515 W. Burnside St. from CD Investments. They are working with the property owner and the city to get the land zoned properly. Julia Foltz has applied for a beer license. Foltz, who would serve as the manager, hopes to have The Log Cabin open by mid-May.
