I got a B- in chem II at my undergrad institute, and now I'm doing a post-bacc. Does it even make sense to retake for a B-, or would adcoms see that I improved and take that into consideration on my app later on (assuming I get an A)?

Thanks in advance!

Adcoms don't think like that. In fact, I'd wonder "why on Earth did you retake a B- grade???"

Never, ever retake a B or B- .
