RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - One woman in Rapid City is cleaning homes and her goal is to not only make them look and smell good, but also safer for those living inside.
Kassie Boone has worked in corporate businesses for ten years and has now turned her love for people into a business of her own. Cleaning homes while in high school and college, Boone recently decided to open up Natural Beauty Organic Cleaning, where she only uses plant-derived cleaners.
"I think my plant-based cleaner cleans just as well as bleach and its not dangerous for kids or pets which is important. Also, it's safe for your surfaces which is important to preserve those too," Boone said.
Boone's cleaning service and contact information can be found on Facebook under Natural Beauty Organic Cleaning.
A local grocery store has popped up in the valley area and it's serving the community in a variety of ways.
Timmons Market now takes the place of what used to be The Fresh Start Convenience Store.The changes bring a new point of sales system and loyalty program that rewards more to customers the more they shop.
Now being a local market, management says they're able to do more local work and that includes helping the 1 in 8 families that go hungry in South Dakota.
"We've partnered with various local agencies and will be continuing to provide both goods and financial support to make sure that were doing our part to combat the hunger that exists right here in our own community," said Bruner, co owner of Timmons Market.
"Having the opportunity to work in the same store every day, interact with our customers that come in repeatedly and the same staff every day has been a completely new experience and once that i have enjoyed greatly," said Ryan Cain, co owner of Timmons Market.
Bruner and Cain say nothing says local to them more than good customer service and that's what you can expect when you visit their store.
