Making Innovative Changes

In today’s market, it can be hard to believe convenience stores were once merely a place to stop for fuel. Today’s consumers rely on convenience stores for a much broader experience, and their expectations are high. Convenience stores are changing their approach to accommodate these expectations, offering a broader scope of services for their customers in order to remain competitive.

Stores across the country are now serving customers with a more personal, interactive, and consumer-focused approach. Consumers expect convenience stores to offer a one-stop retail experience, which includes a wide range of food and beverage offerings and a higher level of curb appeal.


Rethinking Convenience

To offer a wider retail experience, gas stations and convenience stores require a facility that responds to their customers’ expectations. Convenience stores rely on proven commercial general contractors to help them evolve to meet those demands. As project management professionals. Our goal is to assist our clients with these changes by bringing every project from the start to a successful finish.


Commercial Contractors for Cenex

In 2017, Shingobee provided construction and project management services for Orton Oil Company’s Cenex store in Bemidji, Minnesota. Working closely with the owner, our project manager provided engineering options that were able to keep the project within its intended budget. Our team relied on their insight and expertise of construction methods and life-cycle costs to advise Cenex through the process.

Shingobee oversaw a complete remodel of both the interior and exterior of the store, which resulted in a visually appealing and more convenient retail operation. The remodel included additional cooler and freezer space, new kitchen facilities, new restrooms, a car wash, and a mechanical room. Our project management provided complete transparency, resulting in a cost-effective and successful project.
