We have written before about the changing nature of retail projects as retailers look at non-traditional spaces for their next project. The trend continues with our most recent project of converting a former HH Gregg store into a Waterway express Car Wash. Converting a former appliance and consumer electronic showroom into a drive-thru car wash had it’s challenges. We added wash bay entrances into the front and back of the existing structure, new floors into existing space, and many modifications to the structure to accommodate a unique new use.

We started in retail construction more than 40 years ago and have seen many changes during that time. Recently, all you see are stories proclaiming a retail apocalypse or an historical brand is closing thousands of stores. The catastrophic headlines are alarming, but don’t present the full picture or the potential opportunities for these stores outside of the traditional framework of retail.
