Menards coming to Cape Girardeau

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - A new retail store is building a future in Cape Girardeau.

Menards expects to invest about $8 million to open its newest home improvement retail store on Cape's west side.

The Wisconsin-based retailer brings numerous benefits, according to Ken Eftink, the assistant city manager and director of development services.

"Menard's is like any other store. The more opportunities you give to people, the more people will stay here and shop locally. It's another opportunity to shop here in Cape Girardeau."

Menards will bring jobs for about 150 people. About 60 of the available jobs will be full-time and the rest will be part-time. The site will include 16 acres and 162,000 square feet.

They are still in the initial process of examining the site and the possibility for parking. Menards is considering the southwest corner of Siemer Drive and Bloomfield Road.
