Dollar General, Michigan City, Indiana

Michigan City’s retail district was home to a 12,000 square foot Walgreens store that sat vacant for many years. Dollar General found this location highly attractive and immediately sought out the space for a new store. Planning went into effect immediately as the new tenant was eager to get going on construction.

The space would require a design that would make shopping for everyday needs simple and hassle-free. Dollar General offers a carefully selected assortment of highly popular brand name items at low everyday prices, so store flow and customer appeal would be critical aspects for the construction team.

Upon completion of the plans, Mark Dunnett’s team at Rosewood Commercial was awarded the project. Rosewood Commercial was the most qualified contractor as they are highly regarded for effective self-performing labor crews and top field management.

A great majority of the work, less the electrical and mechanicals, was to be done expeditiously with self-performing labor crews and onsite management. The building required extensive sitework, a complete new storefront entry, various door and window changes, and an entire new roof. The scope of work also required all new utilities, including electrical service, roof top mechanicals, etc.

The interior of the structure required a complete demolition and removal of all existing conditions followed by a new floor plate framing plan. The interior space was infested with weather conditions and required extreme measures to clean and remove all debris. All perimeter walls were reinsulated and dry-walled. This combined with a complete insulation layer under the new roofing created a new warm and insulated core and shell.

Dollar General’s new facility included a spacious retail showroom, office, restrooms, break-room and large storage area. The project progressed on the hoped time frame and was completed with congratulations and thankyous from the Dollar General Project Manager for a project well done.
