St. Croix Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin opened the Fourwinds Market in December 2016. They and DBS Group broke ground on the new development in Siren, Wisconsin, in June 2016 . The market includes a grocery store, bottle shop, gas station, carwash and other consumer conveniences, all of which will support Burnett County as a vacation destination.
State representatives and officials from the Bureau of Indian Affairs applaud the project, a nod to the fact that the development was designed, built, operated and staffed entirely with Wisconsin labor, creating hundreds of jobs within the state.
The Fourwinds Market is located on a 9-acre site north of Siren, and incorporates a 23,000-square-foot grocery store, 3,000-square-foot bottle shop, 3,000 square-foot convenience store, 2,000 square-foot fast food shell, single-bay car wash and a series of self-storage units on the backside of the development.
Construction began May 31 and was comleted on time, despite record rain during much of the construction time. The exterior design of the buildings complements the St. Croix Chippewa of Wisconsin brand, and high-efficiency lighting, HVAC and refrigeration systems were incorporated.
DBS Group provided store planning, architecture, engineering and construction services for this development.
