It's a fact of life, and business for that matter, that for every beginning there must be an ending. And for some Sioux Falls businesses, that end came in 2018.

From small mom and pop shops (Sioux Falls Music) to major retailers (Sears), Sioux Falls saw numerous businesses close their doors. For some, it was the reality of the dog eat dog world of business, where a bad month or a new competitor in the marketplace can spell the end. For others, it was simply a desire to do something else.

Some businesses went quietly and without anyone noticing (really, did you even know there was a Monkey Bizness store). Others (we're looking at you Teavana, Younkers) didn't go down without a fight, holding on until the bitter end. And some were staying, then going, then staying (Gordman's anyone) and some are gone, but MIGHT (?) be back (Toys “R” Us).

Here is a list of some of the businesses that shut their doors in 2018.
