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

Twetten’s Interior Design has moved to 2401 W. Trevi Place, Suite 106. The new location is in an office building along 85th Street west of Western Avenue. The business, which expanded to Sioux Falls from Iowa in 2004, has outgrown its original space at 1714 S. Minnesota Ave.

A new fabric and clothing store in a retail center on Minnesota Avenue features colorful African prints known as Super Wax. Vanessa Mpawenayo and her husband, Juma Nzibarinza, own J-Super Wax at 2107 S. Minnesota Ave.

Dakota Carriers is building an office and shop in Foundation Park in northwest Sioux Falls. The site will allow the trucking company to combine its locations on National Avenue and Hovland Drive.

A convenience store and gas station at Sixth Street and West Avenue will reopen under new ownership. Shop ‘N Cart has purchased the property from Stern Oil Co., which operated it as Sixth Street Market until closing it a couple of years ago. Owner Dave Grevlos is planning to remodel and expand the building.

Edible Arrangements has closed. The fruit-bouquet franchise location opened seven years ago at The Bridges at 57th.

Riff City Guitar is taking over the Sioux Falls Music location. The musical instrument store at 1209 W. 41st St. is closing June 23 as the owners retire. Riff City has stores in St. Joseph and New Hope, Minn.

One of the newest food trucks in Sioux Falls features a backyard grill on the “porch” at the back of the trailer. Fergie’s Midwest Dineout offers grilled hamburgers, hot dogs and brats, and a rotating selection of pulled pork sandwiches, walking tacos and other entrees. It’s owned by Jessica and Casey Rasmussen, who plan to operate it year-round, taking it south for the winter.

Breadsmith has chosen a location for its fourth Sioux Falls store. The new shop will be in a retail center on 57th Street west of Cliff Avenue. Franchise owner Susan Patrick announced in April that a third location would open at 26th Street and Sycamore Avenue. Both sites are expected to open this summer.

Security Savings Bank has entered the Sioux Falls market with a branch at 2331 E. 10th St. The northwest Iowa bank started construction on its two-story building last year. The staff of eight provides consumer, commercial, mortgage and wealth management services.

Electric Pulp has moved from south Sioux Falls to downtown. The web design and development firm leased the last remaining office space in the new Washington Square at 12th Street and Main Avenue.

Mills Fleet Farm is building a store on the west side of the Sanford Sports Complex near the Benson Road interchange on Interstate 29. The Wisconsin-based retailer offers a broad assortment of merchandise, including fishing and hunting gear, auto parts, farm and pet supplies, home improvement and home living goods, clothing and footwear, toys and food, plus services such as a gas station, car wash and auto repair. The store is scheduled to open in the spring of 2019.

Mr. Bendo is moving. Joe Darst of Automotive Brake & Exhaust at 2516 S. Minnesota Ave. bought the 18-foot statue from Jerry Wallenstein, who is retiring and closing Buck’s Muffler Shop at 12th Street and Cliff Avenue on May 25.

GreatLIFE Golf & Fitness and Year Round Brown will be neighbors in a retail center being built on Sertoma Avenue one block north of 41st Street. Both businesses have smaller locations in the area that will move into the new building. They’re expected to be open by the beginning of next year.

Year Round Brown has moved its tanning salon at 26th Street and Sycamore Avenue into the nearby former Sun Tan City site. Year Round Brown bought its competitor last year. The remodeled location at 1610 S. Sycamore Ave. has 35 rooms for sunbeds and spray tans.

The Log Cabin has reopened under new ownership. Dusty Foltz and his wife, Julia, led the efforts to save The Log Cabin, which closed when owner Jerry Adams died in March. “We want it to be everyone’s favorite little five-star dive bar,” Foltz said of the decades-old bar at 1515 W. Burnside St.
