The Pine Ridge Mall and Farmer Companies continued their support of Bannock Development Corporation and the community’s prosperity with a $3,000 investment today. The support will help fund job attraction, talent development and local employer support efforts in Bannock County and the region. At a ceremony today in the Pine Ridge Mall community leaders took stock of the benefits from both organizations.
Drake Taylor, presented a check to Bannock Development to support their efforts, including expansion of current employers and recruitment of new ones. “The Pine Ridge Mall is happy to support Bannock Development’s mission to bring good jobs to our community and grow existing companies. We want to see the community grow, along with the Pine Ridge Mall and Bannock Development’s efforts help that happen”, said Taylor.
Brandon Lance, Chairman of Bannock Development Corporation, expressed appreciation and support for the Pine Ridge Mall. “We at Bannock Development Corporation are grateful for the Pine Ridge Mall’s investment and we will use it to get more jobs in town and therefore more people in the Mall. Our missions are much the same,” said Lance.
Pine Ridge Mall and its parent corporation, Farmer Companies, have supported the community, including Bannock Development Corporation, since Farmer Companies purchased the Mall. New innovative tenants in the mall include Planet Fitness and GEM Prep School. The Xtreme Idaho Outdoor Expo will be at the mall on April 5&6.
Recent projects involving the Bannock Development Corporation include the FBI expansion, housing supply research and promotion, Cold Storage development, and economic dashboard development.
