Core Engineering designed the new store and Denise Construction is the contractor.

Regarding the original Korner store, the Tribe is looking at other potential uses for the site, however, it is still too early in process to list specifics.

All the employees from the original Korner store will be relocated to the new facility. With this new, larger store, the Tribe will likely need to hire additional employees.
