Merchandise is being shipped to Aberdeen from the Goodwill warehouse in Sioux Falls. That warehouse has surplus clothing and other merchandise from other Goodwill stores in the region. All the products have been donated. The Aberdeen store will have a full range of items for sale at thrift shop prices when it opens.
The store will accept donations of clothing and other items starting opening day, Keokenchanh said.
Goodwill uses sales revenue to pay its employees and fund job training programs for those with disabilities or other barriers to employment.
Homes Are Possible Inc. will host a ground breaking ceremony today at 2:30 p.m. for its newest subdivision west of Central High School along Melgaard Road. Those driving on Melgaard the last few weeks have been watching the big dirt-movers and backhoes getting the site ready.
It will be the first HAPI subdivision that has apartments.
Eight large lots have been sold and four more are available, said Jeff Mitchell, HAPI executive director. There are plans for buildings with a total of 172 to 180 units. These include: two 12-plexes, 10 duplexes, 11 eight-plexes, two 12-unit townhomes, and two eight-or-12-plexes, said Mitchell.
The foundation has been poured for the first 12-plex and the walls are expected to go up soon, he said.
About 20 acres of the 80-acre subdivision are reserved for apartments; the rest of the development will be houses.
Stan Houston Equipment has had sales representatives in the Aberdeen area for many years, but now they have a store. The company is renting space from Keeley Lumber at 1900 Sixth Ave. S.W.
Charlie Keeley is the Stan Houston Aberdeen manager. He is the son of Jim Keeley, one of the Keeley Lumber owners.
Stan Houston, with stores in Sioux Falls, Rapid City and Sioux City, Iowa, sells and rents construction equipment including skid loaders, forklifts and machinery for concrete. The store also has power tools, hand tools, masonry products and chemicals.
The store had its grand opening June 7.
Keeley Lumber is alive and well and continues to serve its customers, Charlie Keeley said.
Sun Kissed Tan has combined its two facilities into one, said Jon Hoffman, co-owner. The salon at 1724 Sixth Avenue S.E., which had been open for three years, has closed and the equipment and employees from that location have been transferred to the facility at 1409 Sixth Ave. S.E. Suite 3.
That facility has been open about seven years.
Sun Kissed Tan offers several tanning options, including low-, medium- and high-pressure tanning beds and well as Versa Spa, a sun-less spray on tan. The Versa Spa spray is applied by a machine (it looks like a shower) and does not require an attendant, Hoffman said. It is more private than some types of spray-on tans.
