RockStep Capital president speaks out about Monument Mall acquisition

Posted: Updated:

A Texas company that specializes in purchasing, leasing and managing shopping centers says it is excited to bring changes to the Scottsbluff-Gering area after acquiring Monument Mall.
 
RockStep Capital President Andy Weiner says panhandle residents are extremely underserved when it comes to retail and restaurants.

He says Monument Mall is a great, stable location but under-capitalized.

RockStep Capital plans to bring 10 new stores and restaurants to the mall within the next three years; creating about 150 jobs.

Weiner says his company is working with the city to upgrade signs in and around the mall to give it a new look. Those changes may come as soon as this summer.


Weiner says his company is strongly committed to keeping retail spending at the local level.
 
"The spending dollars of the regional Scottsbluff-Gering community, a good portion of those dollars do get spent out of market. And by bringing these 10 new stores in we believe we can keep a lot more of these spending dollars at the local level and create jobs as well." Said Weiner.
 
Weiner says local owners have also invested their money within the new acquisition. He says several people are excited to bring Monument Mall into the 21st century.
