BAXTER, MINN.–Lexington Realty International has tapped Eidco Construction to oversee a 4,700-sq.-ft. interior fit-out for retailer rue21 at the Westgate Mall in Brainerd and Baxter, Minn.
Eidco’s Project Manager Edward Bogacki and Superintendent Michael Schreifels are working with the rue21 team on the project, which is expected to be completed this month. The fit-out includes constructing a new storefront, interior partitions, electrical and lighting installation, the addition of a new washroom, polished concrete floor as well as completing graphics, displays and signage.
