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

Gnosh has left the kitchen at Club David, but owner Ellee Spawn said she is looking for another location and hopes to reopen the restaurant in midwinter or spring. Spawn had been cooking at the nightclub for three months.

North Dakota-based Williquors is expanding to Sioux Falls. It will bring a two-story, 26,200-square foot store to the northwest corner of 69th and Louise. The Bismarck store sells more than 3,500 varieties of wine, more than 900 beer selections and thousands of spirits. It plans to open in October 2019.

Rogers Jewelers in The Empire Mall is closing as part of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy for parent company Samuels Jewelers. The company is seeking a going-concern buyer, but if that doesn’t happen the store likely will close in February 2019.

A matchmaking company that connects ride-sharing drivers with owners of extra cars has arrived in South Dakota. HyreCar is a mobile platform that operates similar to AirBnB. Car owners list their vehicle on the site, and an Uber or Lyft driver who either doesn’t own a vehicle or has one that doesn’t meet a ride-sharing company’s standards rents the car. HyreCar takes care of the payment transaction between the two parties and provides insurance.

 Camping World will use the former Sears space at The Empire Mall until early spring as an indoor shopping space for campers and RVs. The national outdoor retailer acquired Spader’s RV Center in north Sioux Falls earlier this year.

Papa’s Pub & Eatery will open Dec. 11 in the former El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant location in downtown Dell Rapids. Owners David and Rebecca Ohayon will serve “basic American fare” and global flavors in a family-friendly environment.

22Ten Kitchen Cocktails has opened in the former Beef ‘O’ Brady’s location at 69th and Western. The new concept from WR Hospitality is serving dinner and plans to expand to lunch service and breakfast on the weekends.

Alex Hey has started Reset ADHD, a business with the mission of helping those with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder through coaching, school presentations and a blog.

Backdoor Garden is moving into a retail space in downtown Hartford. Rickie Kunzweiler has been operating the floral and event planning service online for six years. She plans to open early next year in the historic Mundt Building.

Vos BioTech has purchased the Elanco facility near Larchwood, Iowa, that had been scheduled to close. Elanco will continue to operate the site, which does research, development and production of large-animal vaccines, through 2019.

Encompass Health Corp., an Alabama-based health system with locations in 36 states, plans to build a 40-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Sioux Falls. Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Sioux Falls will be at 4700 W. 69th St. It’s expected to open in 2020.

Orangetheory Fitness is having a ribbon-cutting at 4 p.m. Thursday, a grand opening Friday and the start of classes Saturday. The new fitness center, which features 60-minute, full-body workouts led by a certified coach, is in a retail center at 85th and Minnesota.
