Old Factory Gets New Offer
Under constant threat of demolition for nearly three years, the old Bakalars sausage factory in La Crosse may have caught a break. Mike Bakalars says he's got a new buyer for the building. This comes less than a month after a developer pulled out of a deal to turn the building into apartments. Bakalars says, to the right developer, his old building will be an asset to the community
The Bakalars building was hit hard by the 2011 tornado. The company moved out shortly afterward into a new place in the industrial park.
