New Stores Opening on South Dakota Reservation

DUPREE, S.D. (AP) — Three new stores will soon be opening up on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation in north-central South Dakota.

KSFY-TV reports that convenience stores that sell gas and groceries will open in Takini and LaPlant. A new full-service grocery store will open in Dupree.

The grocery store is expected to open in October. Construction on the convenience stores has yet to start.

Funds for the stores come from the Tribal Equitable Compensation Act or TECA.

The new stores will build on the success of Lakota Thrifty Mart, a tribally owned full-service grocery store that has been operating on the reservation for 22 years.
