The construction of a new retail center continues Wednesday at a site directly north of Menards in Mitchell. The project, known as the Mentzer Retail Center, is estimated to cost $1,000,900, according to a building permit filed with the city of Mitchell. Estimated costs listed on building permits include only the structure and not other factors such as dirt work, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and plumbing. Therefore, the estimate is lower than the real cost of the project. Calls made Tuesday and Wednesday to the developer, Van Buskirk Companies, of Sioux Falls, seeking additional details were not immediately returned.
