It's hard to believe that school will be back in session in a matter of weeks. Sioux Empire students are not only itching to see their friends, but also they are ready to learn from their teachers.

As a daughter of a teacher, they dedicate so much of their time to make sure their students are receiving the best education possible. Since teachers work so hard to enlighten the young minds of tomorrow, a Sioux Falls boutique is offering a special deal just in time for the first day of school.

So how can Sioux Empire teachers receive 20% off their entire purchase at Sioux Falls Leela and Lavender? It's pretty simple! Teachers just have to bring their teaching badges in order to receive the discount.

It’s 1989, where is your family going out to eat?

If you are a Sioux Falls 80s Kid, you probably spent many nights cruising the loop, browning the records at Musicland, and going out to eat at one of these gone but not forgotten Sioux Falls institutions.

On social media, we asked you all: ‘It’s 1989, where is your family going out to eat?’ Here’s what you said.
