BROOKINGS – For the first time in 132 years, Rude’s Home Furnishings in downtown Brookings will have an owner who isn’t a Rude.

It’ll still be all in the family, said owner Alfred Rude, who on Tuesday afternoon announced that Brookings businessman David Kneip and his family would become corporate partners with the Rudes.

The partnership is effective immediately.
