True to its name, Dakota Outdoor Living is a premier retailer of products for those looking to enjoy the great outdoors right in their own backyards. Since opening in Aberdeen just a few years ago, the store has specialized in hot tubs, outdoor furniture, Big Green Egg and Green Mountain Grills, fire pits, and game room supplies, as well as spa and pool maintenance services. At the end of 2017, they moved from their initial location on 6th Avenue to just east of the Aberdeen Regional Airport, at 5225 Hwy 12 East.
The Score family, Shawn Sr., Stephanie, Shawn Jr., and Steffan, along with help from technician Michael Retzer, operates Dakota Outdoor Living. Steffan says they are excited to be able to work with more space in their new store. “This location gives us more room and a better show floor, so we’re able to display all of our products in one spot.” Last year the business won an Abby Award for Customer Service, and Steffan says taking care of their customers is their main goal. “We decided to open here in Aberdeen because we saw a need for the services, and also because Aberdeen is a great central location for the Northeast South Dakota region. Word of mouth is huge, so we’re making sure we do our part to make customers happy.” // — Jenny Roth
