Business booming at new Kirksville Menards
KIRKSVILLE, Mo. —
Business is booming at a new hardware store in northeast Missouri.
Menards in Kirksville officially opened its doors on June 12.
But, the store kicked off an eight-day grand opening celebration on Sunday.
General Manager Kirt Marshall told KTVO since the store opened, the turnout of those coming to shop has been exceptional.
He says the Kirksville Menards, which has been dubbed a "mega store," is special and unique to the area.
"It is our largest store [or] format store in the company. We've added a whole bunch of new displays. It's brighter, it's cleaner, it's just a bigger store. We hold more products so that when guests are doing projects, we have it on hand to be able to finish a project."
Marshall adds that the new store employs roughly 200 people.
The grand opening celebration of the Kirksville Menards will run through Sunday, July 1.
During the celebration, the store will be giving away more than $20,000 in prizes, including $500 merchandise credit checks on each of the eight days. In addition, there will be product demonstrations, a special appearance and deals on merchandise.
The new Kirksville Menards Mega Store is located at 3309 North Baltimore Street.
