Menards Site Plan Up for Planning and Zoning Approval

The hardware chain is hoping to bring a store to St. Peters. The store would be the first of its kind in St. Charles County.

The St. Peters Planning and Zoning Commission will take a look at the site plan for a proposed Menards in St. Peters. 

The national hardware store is hoping to tap into a new market by moving into St. Peters. The store, potentially located in Ward 1 on the east side of Spencer Road, south side of Executive Centre Parkway, has locations around the country but none nearby. The closest stores are in Springfield, IL, Jefferson City, MO, and Quincy, IL. 

Menards will be presenting a site plan at Wednesday's planning and zoning meeting. If approved by the Commission, the store would be giving clearance to come to the city. St. Peters Mayor Len Pagano said he was excited about the possibility of another business coming to town.  

The Commission will also vote on three home occupations and hear two public hearings related to special use permits. 

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the .

Keep bringing in those jobs mr. mayor, something Jeff City & D.C. can't figure out how to do

Sounds like a great addition, certainly considering there are no Menards locations nearby.

How many Hardware stores does one city need? Home Depot at Mexico and Cave Springs is less than two miles away from the proposed site of the new Menards. Is Saint peters a big enough city to have two huge home improvement stores competing for business so close together?

Stop complaining, this means more jobs for our city ! This store will; draw from St. Charles county, Lincon, county, Warren county, st. louis county. May not be the best paying jobs but something is better than nothing!
