Businesses in Sturgis are recovering from the blizzard


The October blizzard damaged many businesses across KOTA Territory. Sturgis was hit especially hard with nine businesses down.      

The heavy snow caused Campbell Supply's roof to collapse. Now the rubble is being removed. People who work at Campbell's say the support from the community has been great.    

"All we've been hearing is how much everyone is missing us and that means a lot to us and we're working our butts off to get back around for them and get everything going," said Zachary Zankey, Campbell's Assistant Manager.

Heidi Kruse, Sturgis Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, said it will take months to recover from the storm. But she said the business community was coming off of a summer that was positive, due to tourism and the rally.   

"They came into this storm strong and while there's going to be some time to get back to where we were, I have no doubt that this community is going to come together and we'll get back there and we'll do it together," said Kruse.

Managers at Campbell's say it will take between four to six months to be up and running again.
