Trig's Riverwalk Updating and Adding New BusinessesSubmitted: 03/26/2013
Story By Kailey Burton


RHINELANDER - The Trig's Plaza in Rhinelander will get a brand new look and a few new businesses by fall. Right now crews are working inside near the back of the store.

By April they hope to start updating the outside, and working on some new businesses.

"The Riverwalk Center Mall is going to see the addition of a Tula's Cafe, it's going to see the addition of a conference center, and it's going to see the addition of a Tone Zone, and hopefully we're going to see a GNC down in there," said Steve Heise, Trig's Rhinelander Store Manager.

The remodel inside is focused on green updates. The new floor will be a polished concrete that can be cleaned without chemicals. They expect LED lights in the freezers, and newer refrigerators will cut energy use by at least 20 percent.

The Tula's cafe mentioned is already a hit in Minocqua... they think it will be just as popular here.

"The Rhinelander store, being surrounded by the business community, is really a destination center. Our deli sees a lot of people come in for lunch, this is just going to be another option for them," said Heise.

Everything you normally shop for at Trigs is still available, just shifted around a little bit. The entire remodel inside should be done by June.

Along with the new fitness facility, and café customers can expect to see some new products on the remodeled shelves.

PHILLIPS - Many parents worry about their children being distracted while driving.

Students at Phillips High School got to learn about how hard it is to drive while impaired or distracted.

The Phillips Police Department and school district hosted The Save A Life Tour for students Friday afternoon. It teaches kids the negative impacts of impaired driving.

Students took turns in two different chairs to feel what distracted driving feels like.

"One is simulating being impaired or intoxicated, and it shows what happens while the students are driving that," said Phillips Police Department Lieutenant Al Cummings. "The other one is regarding distracted driving, and actually students need to answer text messages while they're driving."
