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

Reliabank has opened its first full-service branch in Sioux Falls at 608 W. 86th St., near Walmart.

Rowdy Hog Smokin’ BBQ’s final day in business is Saturday. The family-owned restaurant opened in November 2013 at 923 S. Marion Road.

The Co-op Natural Foods is planning to double in size. The grocery store at 18th Street and Minnesota Avenue will expand into the space occupied by Davis Independent OBGYN Care at the end of 2020. The clinic plans to move into a smaller space.

The Gas Stop at 3900 N. Cliff Ave. has closed. Owner Tom Howes said the company decided to sell the location and concentrate on other areas in Sioux Falls. Marlin’s Family Restaurant and Titze’s Auto Repair are on the same property and will remain open.

Filly Flair is closing its retail store at 57th Street and Louise Avenue on Saturday and will reopen in late October at the Renner-Crooks exit on Interstate 29. Owner Laura Benson is building a  larger warehouse there to accommodate the business’ online sales, but it will include a retail space.

Miner Brewing Co. and Prairie Berry Winery Taproom has opened on the south side of the Western Mall. The business formerly known as Prairie Berry East Bank closed its downtown Sioux Falls location in April. It no longer serves food, but it has started brewing small batches of beer on-site.

Butterfly Boutique started online earlier this year and has expanded into a retail space at 2123 S. Minnesota Ave. Owner Carrie Thompson sells women’s clothing and accessories.

Lewis Drug has opened its eighth department store in Sioux Falls. The new location at 32nd Street and Ellis Road is next to a Sanford Health medical center that will open in the coming months. Lewis Drug is open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

National cloud-based residential real estate brokerage eXp Realty has entered the Sioux Falls market with a half-dozen agents on two teams. The ability to operate without an office eliminates overhead costs for agents, broker Andy Kontz said.

Goosmann Law Firm is the first business to commit to space at the new Prairie Hills Galleria being built at 69th Street and Western Avenue. The growing law firm had been planning to build an office on South Minnesota Avenue. The retail and office center is expected to open in late spring next year.

All American Gymnastics Academy is building a new home on Cliff Avenue south of 77th Street. Gene and Kathy Luke have owned and operated the business at 3009 S. Phillips Ave. for almost 30 years and now work with more than 1,000 students. The new 40,000-square-foot center will be almost twice as large as the Phillips Avenue space.

Dave Billion Jr. plans to open Autos on the Mall and Better Auctions this week on the former Sioux Falls Ford site near The Empire Mall. The business will offer vehicle consignment and used-car sales, auto repair and occasional auctions.

Full Circle Book Co-op will open next month in the former Hydra Beer Hall space at 125 W. 10th St. Hydra Beer Co. expanded with the second location almost one year ago. Full Circle will serve as a writer’s workshop and will sell local and regionally published works along with used books. It also will feature a bar with beer and wine, light-food options and space for events.

A Mexican food truck is back in business on a vacant lot at 4604 W. 12th St. with new owners and a new name. Luisa Cortez and her children Maria Cortez and Juan Contreras are buying the former Linda’s Concessions truck and have renamed it Loncheria La Chiquita. It’s open every day except for Wednesday.

The Bum Steer opened in July on Main Street in Lennox. The menu includes diner classics such as burgers and chicken strips, breakfast and an ice cream menu featuring malts. It’s open daily.

Firehouse Subs has opened in The Empire Mall. It’s the third Sioux Falls location for the franchise.
