Retail

Whether we are partnering with a chain of anchor stores to create their next big box or with a developer to create the perfect retail strip center, WBC brings more than thirty-five years of experience building some of the most recognizable commercial structures in central Minnesota. Our retail projects have included department stores, convenience stores, grocery stores, and specialty shops.

Often a client will approach WBC requesting our services for the renovation or customized interior design services to complete their fit-out of a newly occupied space within a commercial center. While timelines remain of utmost importance in each project, tenant improvements require that we not only complete the work on time, but also that the existing business operations remain undisturbed. Often this means our superintendents and trade contractors are working evenings and weekends to complete the work.
