As Shopko prepares to close its Sioux Falls stores, the retailer has leased two spaces to preserve its optical business in the city. The west-side Shopko Optical will be in a retail center at 41st and Kiwanis in a space that used to be leased by Black Hills State University. The east-side location will be between Starbucks and Oh My Cupcakes in a new retail center near 10th and Bahnson. The optical stores likely will open this summer.

Coffea Roasterie is expanding downtown with a coffee shop in the lobby of the new Hotel Phillips, which will open later this spring. It will be the fourth location for Coffea, which will keep its other downtown store at 10th and Phillips.

The workshop-based DIY business Board & Brush Creative Studio has closed. It opened at 26th and Marion in late 2017 and was a franchised location of the Wisconsin-based chain.

Khorasan Kabob House has closed, but owner Arian “Abdul” Wisaal hopes to reopen the Afghan restaurant soon in a new location.

The growing national boutique fitness business Solidcore is coming to a retail center along 85th Street in front of Walmart. A Pilates-based concept, it’s a 50-minute class led by a coach and focused on building total-body strength.

Year Round Brown has opened in the new Roosevelt Marketplace near 41st and Sertoma. The location, which features 29 tanning beds, replaces a smaller location nearby. It also offers spray tanning and airbrush services.

Klockers Mattress World is closing after 20 years in business. The family-owned company at 4908 S. Louise Ave. has marked its merchandise on sale and plans to wind down operations by May 1.

Dance Gallery is working on a plan to replace its downtown Main Avenue dance studio with a new building in south-central Sioux Falls. The new location at 47th and Hawthorne likely wouldn’t open until fall 2020.

B&G Milkway at 69th and Louise has opened. Other locations in the area will open later this week and into April.

Omaha-based Essex Communities is seeking rezoning of land on the southeast corner of 85th and Western to build a senior housing community. The first phase of the project would include a three-story apartment building with approximately 80 units for residents 55 and older. Construction would start in late fall with an opening in spring 2021.

A Boston-based software company specializing in products for higher education is adding a Sioux Falls office. Jenzabar has five people working in the area and expects to add 10 to 15 employees here in the next year. It hopes to lease space soon.

Women’s retailer Charlotte Russe is going out of business. Its store in The Empire Mall will be open no later than April 30.

Unique Junque is settling into its new Sioux Falls home and filling the space with repurposed furniture, home decor and other handmade items. The building at 1510 E. 10th St. also includes a DIY studio where mother-daughter duo Remington Cain and Jordan Doyle offer workshops. It’s open Thursday through Sunday. The original Rowena location will be open one weekend a month and now will sell only the furniture pieces Cain and Doyle make and repurpose. It also will continue to host the outdoor Rowena Junque Markets.

Zomer Automotive at 1400 W. 12th St. has closed. Owner Dale Zomer started selling vehicles in Iowa in 1998 and moved the business to Sioux Falls in 2002. He began working as a commercial real estate broker at NAI Sioux Falls in 2016 and relied on staff to help run the dealership. He owns the property and plans to lease it out.
