Drive down Central Park Dr. on Saturday and see that Menards has made a big impact on OFallon.
Menards Store Manager Paul Cox, originally from Terre Haute, Ind. says OFallon has also made a big impact on Menards.
It has been amazing to see people coming from a wide area outside of OFallon to come to our store. They also enjoy the restaurants and the other amenities that OFallon offers.
The store has 162,000 square feet of retail and 42,000 square feet of outdoor warehouse and employs about 150 people. Its on a 19 acre site.
Projected sales when the store opened were $315 million a year.
Cox says Menards focus is pricing and service.
Their famous slogan is Save Big Money.
Menards offers brands and prices that appeal to general construction contractors and the average homeowner, such as home and garden products, do-it-yourself, groceries, appliances and pet food.
