Menards shows interest in Sun Prairie

The prolific growth of big-box stores along Sun Prairie’s Hwy. 151 corridor is attracting the interest of Menards, which would like to add a 173,000-square-foot store near Target, Woodman’s, Costco, and a future Cabela’s. The addition of the store would require changes to the city’s comprehensive plan, which will be discussed at the Sun Prairie Plan Commission’s Nov. 11 meeting.

Eau Claire-based Menards is the country’s third-largest home improvement retailer.
