The construction of the new Menards in Richmond Heights is taking forever to get built. I'm not exactly sure why this is, but the huge area where the home improvement business will be has been an excavation and preliminary work site forever. Contrast that to how quickly IKEA has gone up along Highway 40.
It's not that I am excited to go to Menards but it has been a couple of years since the homes on that ground were sold and torn down, many other peripheral businesses have been built and long since operating. It just seems strange how long this is taking.
