Sister Bay, Wisconsin
When Piggly Wiggly decided to refresh and expand their Sister Bay branch, they selected the MSI General team to partner with on this challenge. Both are family-owned and operated, Wisconsin-based companies that developed life-long friendships during the course of this project between owners and staff alike. The level and quality of communication and collaboration between the Piggly Wiggly corporate team, the store owners, and MSI General was critical for the success of this project. The existing store underwent a complete remodel with everything being replaced except the roof structure, floors, and foundations, while a 4-sided addition was built around the entire facility. Precast walls were used to increase work force and material/labor efficiencies in order to speed the timing of the work needed to allow the store to remain open during the entire remodel. New utilities and services including full sprinkler fire protection were added along with an office space, lunch room, storage for dry goods and liquor, cooler, and freezer space. The project was completed on time despite the cold winter and constant snowfall. The Door County charm was showcased through the stone, siding, dentil, and façade amenities that were incorporated in the design of the exterior. The community was wowed with the new exterior and store layout while the employees were given a workplace brought back to life that they could be proud to work in.
