PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Dairy Queen will return to Pierre in 2017 after a four-year absence.

Pierre residents Lonnie and Jackie Heier says they have bought the old Dairy Queen building on Sioux Avenue and intend to open a new Dairy Queen Grill and Chill Restaurant in the spring or summer of 2017.

The Heiers own Dairy Queen locations in Eagle Butte, Martin and Vermillion.

Lonnie Heier says he’s been looking for a new Pierre spot since the restaurant closed down in 2013. He plans to hire 40 to 50 new full- and part-time staff.
