SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Board members from the Co-op Natural Foods business in central Sioux Falls say they’ll soon reopen in a temporary location.

No one was injured and nobody was in the building when the store burned Jan. 19 in a fire that appears to be arson. The co-op says more than $100,000 in inventory was destroyed and a small amount of money was taken.

Board of Directors president Alex Halbach says the goal is to open a temporary store in the former Movie Gallery space at 18th Street and Minnesota Avenue within weeks.

The co-op says it has about 2,500 members, but anyone can shop at the store that does more than $2 million in business every year.

It has 18 full-time and part-time employees and its suppliers include 40 local farmers.
