Here’s a roundup of recent changes in the Sioux Falls-area business community.

Breadsmith plans to open its third Sioux Falls store in early summer. The shop will be in a retail center on Sycamore Avenue north of 26th Street.

A new business, Float On, teaches children as young as 6 months how to rescue themselves in water. Andrea Oswald started the business, which uses the swimming pool at Dow Rummel Village for its private lessons. Kids learn how to get from face down to float on their back.

A new business offering indoor climbing is planning to open on the east side of Sioux Falls. Climber Adam Bergdale and Wade Randall, the owner of Pure Fitness, are partnering on Frontier Climbing. Construction will begin soon on land west of Foss Avenue and north of Arrowhead Parkway. Frontier will offer multiple types of climbing, including some areas reaching more than 50 feet and ranging from easy slabs to overhanging arches.

Emina Sports Bar has opened at 2309 W. Madison St. in the former Cubby’s Bar space. The business is owned by Mina Husejnovic and her fiancé, Ibro Dzafic. It caters to fans of football, soccer, boxing and UFC fights and welcomes bikers.

Twin City Fan & Blower is closing its manufacturing plant that it opened in 2012 at 2009 E. 39th St. N. The work will shift over the next couple of months to a plant in Brookings. The 50 employees in Sioux Falls have the option to work there.

Bella Rosa is selling flowers in the Jones421 marketplace on North Phillips Avenue. The flower shop is owned by Ann Summa and her daughter, Leigh McCoy. It also sells home decor.

Boki Gelato and Boki European Street Food have opened in the Jones421 building on Phillips Avenue north of Sixth Street. Borjan Jaksic also operates Boki Gelato in The Empire Mall, and he has mobile versions of both businesses that will be at events this summer.

Halberstadt’s has moved to a larger space in The Empire Mall. The new location for the men’s clothing store is between Aeropostale and lululemon and more than doubles its space.

Prairie Berry East Bank is closing April 28, but plans to reopen later this year in a larger location. The business at 322 E. Eighth St. serves as a tasting room for Prairie Berry Winery and Miner Brewing Co. Under a new state law that takes effect July 1, alcohol manufacturers can no longer hold an off-site retail liquor license unless that location also manufactures on site.

Parlour Ice Cream House has set its opening date for May 3. The shop in Washington Square at 12th Street and Main Avenue will feature 18 rotating options of ice cream, gelato and sorbet. Owners Chris and Caryn Hanmer also have CH Patisserie nearby.

Younkers has started its going-out-of-business sale in The Empire Mall. Its owner, The Bon-Ton Stores Inc., filed for bankruptcy in February and auctioned off its remaining assets. The winning bid came from a group of liquidators and lienholders.

Marie & Marie Bridal has opened at 229 S. Phillips Ave. The store is owned by sisters Erin Rallis and Kayla Thompson. It carries dresses and accessories for brides and bridesmaids, including some brands that are new to Sioux Falls.
