A new Menards store is coming to Farmington.
The company estimates they could employ as many as two hundred full-time and part-time workers.The new building is expected to be consistent in size with other local Menards stores, such as the one recently opened in Cape Girardeau.
City Administrator Gregory Beavers believes adding a new large retailer to the community will be a boon to the local economy.
“Typically, we see everybody benefits from adding a new retailer that expands our market area draw in Farmington. We believe that it will be one of those situations where activity breeds additional activity,” Beavers said.
Beavers states the new retailer would expand the local market, “filling niches” in Farmington’s economy.
“The retail market has been so soft now for several years that everybody’s very hesitant to invest and nobody wants to be the first person in the water, so to speak. And to have a large retailer like Menards make that kind of commitment gives confidence to the smaller retail establishments that tend to follow them,” Beavers said.
Details regarding the store’s budget are still unknown but are expected to be revealed upon submission of Menards’ building permit applications within the next month.
Beavers said construction will likely begin in the spring of 2013.
