Historic building welcomes new chapter as Perch restaurant opens, joining city’s longstanding businesses

Schoeneman’s Building Materials Center Embarks on Major Transformation with Builders FirstSource Acquisition

Schoeneman’s Building Materials Center, one of the oldest businesses in Sioux Falls, is undergoing a major transformation. Established in 1888 and always family-owned or employee-owned, the business has recently become part of Builders FirstSource, a publicly traded company with nearly 600 distribution and manufacturing locations. This strategic move comes as Schoeneman’s anticipates an increase in housing demand and wants to be prepared for the future of the supply chain. By joining a larger company, Schoeneman’s will have access to more materials and advanced technology that will shape the building industry in the coming years. Despite the acquisition, the name Schoeneman’s will remain, and employees who were owners will benefit from the sale as well.

In other news, a historic former grocery store at 9th and Grange is being transformed into a new breakfast and lunch spot called Perch. The owner of the building, attorney Alex Halbach, has already moved his law firm into the second floor of the building. Perch, which will seat 26 people inside, is expected to open in the coming weeks. Additionally, a patio with 50 seats and a future rooftop patio with around 40 seats will be added. Once complete, Perch will offer a cozy dining experience for customers to enjoy their meals throughout the day. Stay tuned to SiouxFalls.Business for more updates on local business developments.
