I'm using OpenStudio (v3.3.0) with the "Space Type and Construction Set Wizard" BCL measure to create a mixed-use building model; I'm trying to use this wizard to pull in space types from both the RetailStandalone and MediumOffice 90.1-2016 prototypes. The wizard seems to be working fine for MediumOffice but for RetailStandalone it seems incomplete - it adds RetailStandalone Space Types to My Model (ex. Retail Standalone Entry - 90.1-2016, Retail Standalone Back_Space 90.1-2016, etc.) but no RetailStandalone Loads (People Definitions, Lights Definitions, etc.), and the RetailStandalone Schedule Sets are all blank.

I ran the "Space Type and Construction Set Wizard" BCL measure twice - once for MediumOffice 90.1-2016 and again for RetailStandalone 90.1-2016; below are some screenshots showing my RetailStandalone 90.1-2016 measure inputs, measure output, and resulting Lights Definitions (showing none for RetailStandalone) and Schedule Sets (showing blanks for RetailStandalone Retail Schedule Set).

Any ideas how I can get the RetailStandalone 90.1-2016 loads and schedules added to my model?

I ended up creating a separate RetailStandalone model using the "Create DOE Prototype Building" BCL measure, and importing its loads and schedules into my mixed-use model using the File - Load Library menu option. (Got the idea from this post:
