On October 21 Best Buy opened its newest store in Mansfield, Texas, a suburb of Fort Worth Texas. Bob Moore Construction was the general contractor, on behalf of Kossman Development Company. The new store is Best Buy’s first in the Mansfield and the 65th store in the state of Texas.

General Contractor Bob Moore Construction has completed construction on the new Best Buy in Mansfield, Texas, a suburb of Fort Worth Texas.

Bob Moore Construction was the general contractor for this new retail building, on behalf of Kossman Development Company in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The new store is Best Buy’s first in Mansfield and the 65th store in Texas. The 30,000 SF store is also the first in Dallas / Fort Worth, and only one of approximately 20 Best Buy stores worldwide, to feature color coded décor and a Personal Shopping Assistant (PSA) kiosk. PSA is a new service that provides free, highly trained assistants to help the consumer make selections or even to shop on their behalf while the consumer relaxes and waits -- all to make shopping easier, friendlier and more convenient.

"This store features the latest and greatest that Best Buy has to offer," said Brad Shepherd, New Store Opening Manager for Best Buy. "PSA has been tested in various forms over the past couple years but is only being rolled out now, and this store in Mansfield is the first north Texas store to have it. It’s a whole new approach to making shopping for technology as simple as possible. With PSA and the color-coded departments, the store is designed to make shopping for even the most technological things as easy as possible for any consumer. And it looks very, very nice."

"The store looks great," said Brett Jeffreys, General Manager for the new store. "I was very happy that we could use the stone finish. It's one of the best looking stores I've seen."

Shepherd was pleased with his experience with Bob Moore Construction. "Sometimes construction can be a nightmare but this project has been very smooth," he said. "I've been very impressed with our initial walkthrough and with the site superintendents' professionalism."

Curt Hellen, Senior Project Manager for Bob Moore Construction, was very pleased with the store. “The building turned out beautifully and the stone veneer fits in seamlessly with the rest of the stores in the town center,” he said. “It was a pleasure to work with Kossman Development and the city of Mansfield, as well as the people at Best Buy. The whole project went very smoothly and right on schedule.”

The new Best Buy store is the latest addition to Mansfield Town Center West, a major north Texas shopping development that features well-known retail names like Cinemark USA, Washington Mutual Bank and Quiznos. The Cinemark 12 Theater recently earned Bob Moore Construction the Texas Construction 2005 “Best Of” Award for Entertainment Building construction.
