Digging began a couple of weeks ago on the new site for a strip mall off STH 54 next to the new Arby’s in Black River Falls.  Developer Todd Waller of Lee & Associates said the 7,000 square-foot space should be completed by September.

Waller said Cell-Plus and TRICOR Insurance are the first two lessees going into the mall.  “We have space for up to three more,” explained Waller, “depending on the space they would need.”

“Yes, we are super, super excited to have the opportunity to expand,” Cell-Plus store manager Nancy Stevens said.  “It cements our commitment to the Black River Falls area.  We’re hoping to move in to our new store by early fall.”

“It’s our understanding sometime this fall we’re moving,” Black River Falls TRICOR Branch anager Howard Gomer also confirmed.

“I am really looking forward to he construction of a new multi-unit retail building next to the new Arby’s Restaurant on STH 54,” shared Black River Falls Administrator Brad Chown.  “This facility will provide new retail space for some local businesses and will bring in new companies looking to establish a presence in Black River Falls/  We are very fortunate to have so much new development occurring in the city which should be a catalyst for even more business and residential growth in our community.”
