Project Involves Construction of New Polished Concrete & Storefront

BAXTER, Minn. (June 7, 2012) – Eidco Construction, one of the fastest growing commercial construction management companies in the United States, today announced that the firm has been retained by Lexington Realty International to oversee a 4,700-square-foot interior fit-out for retailer rue21 at the Westgate Mall in Brainerd and Baxter, Minnesota.

Project Manager Edward Bogacki and Superintendent Michael Schreifels are working with the rue21 team on the project, which is expected to be complete in June. The fit-out includes constructing a new storefront, and interior partitions, electrical and lighting installation, the addition of a new washroom, polished concrete floor as well as completing graphics, displays and signage.

Rue21 currently has over 800 stores nationwide and offers a broad assortment of the newest emerging fashion trends in apparel and accessories for girls and guys. Using a competitive pricing strategy, rue21 makes a specific, unique statement by offering fashion at a value.

"We appreciate the intricacies of undertaking an assignment that requires a significant amount of detailed work," said Chez Eider, CEO of Eidco Construction. "This assignment goes hand in hand with our other recent work at Westgate Mall. Potential clients can see Eidco's workmanship on display."

The 260,725-square-foot Westgate retail center has a tenant roster that includes anchor tenant Herberger's Department Store, Dunhams, Big Lots and a 10-screen movie theatre.
