Rosebud Sioux Tribe delays grocery store again
The Rosebud Sioux Tribe of South Dakota has delayed the opening of its grocery store again.

The Turtle Crossing store was supposed to open late last year. But rising costs and equipment delays have pushed its debut to May.

The 26,000-square foot store was originally expected to cost $6 million but the new price tag is $8.1 million. President Rodney Bordeaux cited inflation as the main reason for the increase.

The tribe funded the project with a $3 million loan and $1 million grant from the Shakopee Mdewankanton Sioux Community of Minnesota and a loan from the Native American Bank.
