Menards eyes January 2013 for opening date

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - Menards is eyeing January 2013 as the opening date for its new store in Cape Girardeau.

The Wisconsin-based hardware store submitted all paperwork to Cape Girardeau city officials, and they have been returned for revisions.

Menards will be the largest retailer to open in Cape Girardeau since both Kohl’s and Sears Grand opened their doors in 2004, according to Cape Girardeau Area Magnet director Mitch Robinson.

"The great thing about this is it’s going to open up a new section of Seimer’s. You’re going to be on the south end. There’s plans for the surrounding property to be developed. That’s going to be exciting to see that opportunity," Robinson said.

Robinson says Menards hopes to build the foundation this fall, but the rest of the construction timeline is still up in the air.
