Back in August construction crews began turning an empty field into a Menards store.
The ground for the future store is located at Spencer Road, south side of Executive Centre Parkway—the store will sit behind the McDonald's at the intersection of Spencer and Mexico Roads—was being flattened and and the plot of land was mostly an empty field. Things have changed in the last two months.
Construction of the 162,000 square foot store is far from done, but significant progress has been made.Walls are up, and parking lots are being built. Work is also being done inside the store.
Menards told the St. Peters Planning and Zoning Commission in March that it wants to open in spring of 2013. Once the store opens, Menard's said the store would add 150-200 jobs to the area. Menards, a national chain, began to move into the St. Louis area this spring. If construction remains on schedule, the St. Peters location could be the first Menards in the region to open.
