Before they could lay down a parking lot, Jones’ Food Center had to remove the building next door at 115 E. Main St. in Elk Point. Crews from Gregoire Excavating demolished the building and hauled away the debris.

Most of the businesses in the building found new homes on Main Street. Hair Studio 3 moved just across the street to the front half of the building at 118 E. Main with Elk Point Outdoors moving to the back half. Massage Therapy is also across the street at 108 E. Main and Aunty K’s Antiques has moved to the back of the former Stickney & Groe Law Office on S. Douglas St. The Coffee Shop is hoping to open soon on N. Douglas St.
