More business growth in store for Rapid City


Over the past few years, Rapid City has experienced exceptional growth, which may be good news for people living on the South and East parts of the city.

More businesses are setting up shop on the rapidly growing corner of 5th Street and Catron Blvd.

Rapid City's newest Walmart is the anchor for the spurring commercial development in that corner of town.

But before Walmart, there was Arby's, a restaurant that manager Chelle Luera says has benefited from the surrounding growth.  

"Just any kind of business you know increases our sales," Luera said. 

The same is true for other retailers, and expansion is something locals can get used to.

"It's starting to fill in, just took a little longer than what people probably liked that live out here," said property broker Mel Dreyer. "But it's coming and we're getting a lot of new houses being built in this area." 

One of the newest business in the area will be a Pizza Ranch, Dreyer says construction will start in a couple of months.  

With more people moving to the South East part of Rapid City, it is a gold mine for new businesses.

Dreyer credits the North Dakota oil boom for some of the significant growth.
