After many years of operation, Dakota Mill and Grain will close its Sturgis elevator facility in Jan. 1, 2013.
Built back in the 1940's, the Sturgis elevator has reached the end of its safe and useful life. According to a news release, the entire facility is not sound enough to continue to safely operate without a disproportionate investment in renovation and repairs.
Dakota Mill and Grain will continue to accept grain at the Belle Fourche and Rapid City locations.
During the transition period, Sturgis customers can contact DMG at (605) 347-3691.
