SCOTTSBLUFF — The Monument Mall in Scottsbluff has a new owner. Last week, RockStep Capital, a Texas-based retail investment company, finalized its purchase of the Scottsbluff mall from Omaha-based Perkins Properties and announced plans to spruce up the 27-year-old retail center.
Working alongside a partnership of local and national investors, RockStep President Andy Weiner said the goal is to fill the mall with 10 new stores and create about 150 new jobs in the next three years. “Scottsbluff, Gering and the surrounding area is a sturdy region that is often underserved,” he said.
New signage and other improvements will begin appearing in the summer of 2014, he said.
