Menards Coming To Jamestown

Posted: Updated:
 Homes and apartments are the only thing going up in Jamestown.
Menards will soon call this lot on the south side of I-94 home. 

Mayor Katie Andersen says Menards made the commitment to come, but only with incentives.
She says the financing package uses Menards sales tax and property tax to pay for the improvements needed to to develop this land. 
But she says the new business will keep more building dollars in the community.

(Katie Andersen / Jamestown Mayor) "It's the first large scale development we have seen in a long time our leakage numbers said for home improvement sales we were losing upwards of 50 million dollars annually out of this community in home improvement sales. So it means a lot of retention of dollars back to the community, plus a store like menards is a catalyst for other development. 

Andersen expects Menards to be open before July 2016.
She says upgrades and construction will begin this summer.
