Buche Foods, Pine Ridge’s only Native American-owned grocery store announced Wednesday that Hardware Hank will be a part of their upcoming grocery store.

The store is slated to open in early 2019, a community necessity after the closing of Sioux Nation, the only grocery store in Pine Ridge in February 2018 due to violations of health codes.
