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

B&G Milkyway is expanding to southeast Sioux Falls. The ice cream shop, which also serves food, will be along 41st Street just east of Harmodon Park. Construction will begin this month, and it’s expected to be open by June 1.

The 1948 Trading Company in Brandon has closed. It opened in 2002 and was purchased by Matt Jorgenson five years ago. “We just could not get the foot traffic to sustain the business,” he said.

A new business in Sioux Falls will offer virtual reality gaming, education and exercise. Kasey Wheeler and his wife, Gwen, are starting Virtuality Gaming Den in a retail center at the southeast corner of 26th Street and Sycamore Avenue. They plan to be ready for a soft opening in February.

Teriyaki Madness is coming to 57th and Louise. The franchise will be in part of the former Treasures From the Heart space. The Asian-inspired menu features teriyaki dishes with beef, chicken and tofu along with noodle dishes, appetizers, rice and stir-fried vegetables.

Gustaf’s Greenery has closed at 1020 S. Minnesota Ave. Siblings Pat and Jean Gustaf started the business 33 years ago.

Acorn19 – Bead Co. is closing its downtown store. Melanie Erickson plans to continue teaching classes in the community and make custom jewelry. The store at 319 S. Phillips Ave. will close in mid-January.

Tawooki Mediterranean Chop Chop has closed its restaurant to make way for an Asian eatery but will continue to do catering. The business opened almost one year ago in the same retail center on West 41st Street as Fuddruckers. Some of the Mediterranean dishes likely will be incorporated into the menu at sister restaurant Zaroty Pizza Kitchen at 41st and Marion.

The Chinese restaurant to replace Tawooki will feature hot pot cooking. The new business is owned by Minnesota restaurateur Hui Wang. He hopes to open it in mid- to late February.

When Chef to Plate closed earlier this year, one of the cooks bought the equipment and took over the kitchen, starting a similar business. Healthy M.E. owner Yung Ring makes healthy, ready-to-eat meals in individual portions. Customers order them online and pick them up at Science Nutrition stores, which also stock a few extra for drop-in business.

MK Threads Boutique is moving into a larger space at the Jones421Building. The women’s clothing shop moved into the marketplace in August. Another shop, Corduroy & Pixie Dust, will join MK Threads in the new site for a few months while it builds out a vacant space in the building. The Dell Rapids business sells children’s clothing and toys. Intoxibakes will fill the MK Threads space. The bakery that makes alcohol-infused cupcakes hopes to be open in February.

Bros Brasserie Americano in downtown Sioux Falls has closed. The restaurant at 334 S. Phillips Ave. opened in 2009. It has been for sale for more than a year.

Nebraska-based JMisko Surgical Design has expanded to Sioux Falls. The medical spa offers aesthetic services such as Botox, fillers, skin treatments and skin care; weight-loss solutions; and hormone replacement and vaginal rejuvenation therapies. Stacy Bisssoon, who started NextGen Gynecology & Aesthetics earlier this year in Sioux Falls, is the service provider. The office is in Heather Ridge Village at 69th Street and Western Avenue.

Hagere Ethiopian Restaurant is coming to the former Old Soul Café spot in the Southway Center at Minnesota and 31st. Chani Liben and his wife, Sifrashi Mengistu, hope to open the restaurant at the end of January or in early February.

Breadico is closing its retail location and restaurant at Eighth Street and Weber Avenue to return its focus to making bread, selling it through other retailers and providing it to restaurants. The final day is Saturday.

The Black Hills Area Multi Housing Association has dissolved its organization and joined the South Dakota Multi Housing Association.

Hobby miniatures company Games Workshop has opened a Warhammer store in Plaza 41 at 41st and Kiwanis. The business sells fantasy miniatures that gamers build, paint and use to play Warhammer Age of Sigmar or Warhammer 40,000. Games Workshop is a British company with more than 500 locations worldwide.

Silverstar Car Wash has opened its fifth location in Sioux Falls. The business purchased 10th Street AutaWash at 3000 E. 10th St. in April and spent the past eight months updating the operation. A sixth location will be built on 85th Street near Minnesota Avenue.
