Here’s a look at recent changes in the business landscape in the Sioux Falls area.

Jersey Mike’s Subs has found its first Sioux Falls location. The national sandwich restaurant that serves hot and cold subs and wraps will open on the northeast corner of 57th Street and Louise Avenue in the former Klockers Mattress World space. Franchisee Andrew Ticknor expects to be open for business this fall.

Dressbarn is shutting down, which includes closing its store at 2814 S. Louise Ave. Ascena Retail Group, which also owns Ann Taylor and Loft, has not said when it will close its 650 Dressbarn stores.

The Spice & Tea Exchange will open June 14. The franchise owned by Tami and Vernon Brown will be at 328 S. Phillips Ave.

Home decor superstore At Home is coming to Sioux Falls. The national retailer is leasing the former Shopko space at 1601 W. 41st St. The Texas-based retailer operates almost 200 stores in 38 states. Each store is filled with more than 50,000 home-related products that the retailer says fit any budget or style.

Hy-Vee is swapping its full-service restaurants for fast-casual formats at three Sioux Falls grocery stores. The full-service Market Grilles will become Market Grille Expresses, and the reduced size will allow Hy-Vee to build out more options in what it calls a food court-style format, including Mia Pizza. The changes are coming to the Sioux Falls stores on South Minnesota Avenue, at 26th Street and Sycamore Avenue, and at 26th and Marion Road.

Windsor Mortgage Solutions, a new division of Plains Commerce Bank that offers expanded mortgage services, has moved into its own office at 4410 S. Technology Drive. It’s staffed by 51 people.

Marketing has started on the first of several retail buildings on the northeast corner of 57th and Sycamore, which collectively will be called The Market.

Plains Commerce Bank plans to build a branch on the northeast corner of 57th and Sycamore, next to the future  development for The Market. Work is expected to begin later this summer with an open in late spring 2020. The building will include room for other tenants.

North Dakota-based Leela & Lavender is expanding to Sioux Falls. The women’s boutique has leased 3,000 square feet on the first floor of the new Galleria at 69th and Western. It will open later this year.

The new owners of The Shipwreck Bar & Grill are gearing up for a summer of lakeside fare near Chester. John and Melissa Dougan of Sioux Falls purchased the restaurant along Brant Lake late last year. They’ve introduced a new menu at the business, which also sells fuel for boats.

Clean Ride Auto Spa is being built along 85th Street west of Minnesota Avenue. Customers will be able to choose from a drive-thru touch or touchless car wash, an express detailing wash and a full detailing shop. Other features include a self-service pet wash station, a laser light show, specialty repair services and a coffee shop-style waiting area serving Coffea Roasterie coffee with a drive-thru option. It’s expected to open this fall.

OG Greens has opened in the first-floor marketplace of the Jones421 Building on Phillips Avenue north of Sixth Street. The restaurant, which focuses on healthy-eating options, is owned by brothers Brandon and Quinton Manning. They’ve started with hours of 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Dreamers Outlet has moved to the Plaza 41 retail center at 41st and Kiwanis. Dan Darkow and Gaylene Stocco started the discount mattress store three years ago at 51st and Grange. With the larger space, they’ve expanded into furniture and offer a wider variety of mattresses.

A boutique that focuses on styles for teens and young women has opened at 1014 W. 41st St. Fashion Boutique, which is owned by Loyda Ramos, is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

Payless ShoeSource, which is going out of business after filing for bankruptcy a second time in recent years, has closed its two Sioux Falls stores.

Stensland Family Farms has opened an east-side retail location at 4712 E. 41st St. The shop’s 24 flavors of ice cream and sorbet rotate with the seasons and are used to make bowls, waffles cones, floats and sundaes. Stensland also sells other dairy products that it makes at its farm near Larchwood, Iowa. It’s open daily.

CorTrust Bank plans to acquire a Minnesota bank that will accelerate its growth in the Twin Cities. Pending regulatory approval, the Sioux Falls-based bank will acquire First Minnesota Bank, which is based in Minnetonka and has 11 branches throughout the Twin Cities region.

Twin Cities-based women’s fashion retailer Evereve is coming to The Empire Mall. Construction will begin soon on the 3,300-square-foot store across the hall from Red Robin. It will open in September.

What started as a way to connect producers with restaurants has expanded this year to individual orders. Dakota Fresh Food Hub has created an online market where people can order items weekly and pick them up Fridays at Stensland Family Farms’ store on West 41st Street. The website is updated each week at 8 a.m. Monday to show what’s available from each producer. Shoppers create an account and order as much or as little as they want by 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Edward Jones is opening a branch office in Hartford later this sumer. Abby O’Hara, who lives in the community, will serve as the financial adviser. While the office in the Hartford Professional Centre is being built-out, O’Hara is working out of an Edward Jones office in Sioux Falls.

Bandstra’s Blinds recently moved into a larger location at 1022 W. 41st St. Bruce Bandstra started the business in 2010.
