New SF Boutique Cleaning Up After Water Line Break

New SF Boutique Cleaning Up After Water Line Break

In a matter of months, downtown Sioux Falls will welcome a new boutique to its growing list of shops. In April, Lot 2029 will open its first store beyond Bismarck and Fargo.

"We looked at a few other cities and Sioux Falls really popped out as a strong economy. The downtown is completely renovating," co-owner Don Goldammer said.

Goldammer's excitement for the move is stalling slightly following a water line break Friday that brought water into the basement. By the time he got to the store, the water receded and now all that is left is a thick blanket of mud.

"It happens. We're in the Midwest; water lines break all the time. We're renovating a building right now; the water line broke on it in Fargo. You just take care of it," Goldammer said.

There is nothing in the store yet, so no inventory was lost due to the intruding water. That's a relief to co-owner Hope Wald as she and her partner keep moving forward and get the store ready to open.

"We've just stayed true to our game plan and that's getting the store painted, the fitting rooms in and let the owner of the building take care of his end of the clean-up," Goldammer said.

While the flooding in their basement is a set-back to this new business, the owners are just rolling with the punches and are expecting to be open this spring.

"You have to really have an open mind when you're starting new businesses up, especially in an area you're not too familiar with. So, yeah, it would've been nice if it wouldn't have happened, but maybe, fortunately, something can be fixed that we didn't know existed before," Goldammer said.

Even if that doesn't happen, it will certainly be an interesting story to tell their first customers on opening day.

Goldammer says he's lucky his business didn't suffer nearly as much damage as some of his new neighbors.
