A computer programming franchise is opening a Sioux Falls location.
Code Ninjas will be located in a retail center, Liberty Square, near 85th Street and Minnesota Avenue in front of Walmart.
The business is an educational center that teaches kids ages 7 through 14 computer coding skills through a game-based curriculum.
"We are seeing good interest from retail tenants at 85th and Minnesota," said Ryan Tysdal, who is the leasing agent for Liberty Square.
Tysdal says the driving force behind the leasing activity is several national retailers that have opened there.
"Retail drives more retail. Walmart, Aldi, Verizon, Burger King, Scooters Coffee, OrangeTheory Fitness – these are fantastic tenants that are fueling additional growth," Tysdal said.
Tysdal expects to announce another new tenant in the area in the next few weeks.
Code Ninjas expects to be open mid-2019.
