More than three years after the original announcement, Menards is coming to Williston.
The hardware giant officially signed its contract for the Sand Creek Town Centre, according to Terry Metzler, operations manager of Granite Peak North Dakota and Tom Rolfstad, executive director of Williston Economic Development.
Metzler and Rolfstad said the Williston store is going to be a new concept store, making it one of the largest locations in the country. It will take up 18 acres of the Sand Creek development.
Rolfstad added that Menards has the largest market share in North Dakota among big box hardware stores with locations across the state. He said Home Depot has had mixed results while Lowe’s has been located primarily in the eastern part of the state.Times like these, I always enjoy re-reading The Atlantic article of February 12, 2013.
