Menards Announces Opening Date for New Richfield Store

The moment many Richfield residents have been waiting for is here.

The new Richfield Menards superstore is set to open Tuesday, Feb. 12. The announcement was made Thursday morning.

The new two-story home improvement store replaced the former one-story store, as well as the former Jun Bo Chinese Restaurant. The property is roughly 10 acres in size.

“We are really excited to present this amazing new store to our friends in Richfield," Jeff Abbott, a Menards spokesperson, said in a press release. "We know that they miss the convenience of Menards in their city, and we intend to pick up right where we left off by providing the best home improvement goods and services around!”

In addition to carrying its normal stock of  tools, painting supplies and household supplies, the new Richfield store will also carry name brand appliances, pet products, lawn and garden supplies and even a line of convenience groceries as a one-stop shopping experience, according to the release.

"We are glad to be back in Richfield, bigger and better than before," Craig Schopf, general manager of the Richfield Menards, said in the release. “We can’t wait to open the doors so our loyal guests can see this beautiful new store with the wide aisles, fullservice lumberyard, fabulous garden center, and other outstanding departments.”

To celebrate the grand opening, special deals on merchandise, prize give-aways, in-store demonstrations and celebrity appearances are also planned. More information on this is to come later, according to the release.

Store hours are 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays.

I agree with all of the comments so far. The new Menards Superstore will be a great asset to Richfield and the surrounding communities. You could almost say, " if you can't find it at Menards, then you don't need it".

"More information on this is to come later, according to the release." Has there been any more info? I would assume the official opening would be at the 6:30am that the store is scheduled for?

Yes, the official opening is at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. As far as the drawings and such, I think they plan on having a more formal celebration event. I'll shoot an e-mail and ask if there is new info!

Gosh, no place to park, ended up with a ticket, why was this gigantic store allowed to open with so little parking available - ridiculous!

Where did you park, Linda? I believe parking is now permitted on the north side of East 78th Street (the frontage road between Hwy 5/494 and Menards). There should also be parking available behind Menards on S 2nd Ave. There is also Sunday parking available on Nicollet. The parking lot is pretty ample, but of course, there will be times when there isn't room. Considering that this development is a massive departure from the official I-494 Corridor Plan (which emphasizes urban forms, more like the 7600 block of Lyndale), I am glad they erred on the side of a slightly smaller parking lot.
