me work for Menards? hahaha. Be a pretty long commute from williston lol. I buy stuff at both places. I built homes for a dozen + years. Bought stuff from both places but the overwhelming majority came from Menards. Better prices on avg. and by far a better selection. And a much easier store to navigate and find stuff in. The kitchen cabinet dept. isn't even comparable.

Menards won't be able to over charge no more and will have to give better service. Hope they are up to it

concerned... thanks for the answer on the rebuild. I am glad they came to the area and are taking a chance. I am looking forward to a stroll thru sometime if I need anything. I just hope they weren't given any false pretenses in making their decision.

If the report was accurate, Home Depot paid for infrastructure, new roads, repaved other streets, and spent a lot of their own money to build. Not all companies demand benies from the taxpayers.

Hope the location is better than the one Bismarck had.

Yes there is still that much flood reconstruction going on plus new construction...have you looked in SW Minot lately with so many apartments and townhouses that are being built behind CashWise? And some people couldn't afford to build until now or actually get help. Not everybody got help from Building Hope or the Churches. Some people have/had to do it on their own. So no not everything is all back together. Get over it. It's time for competition, even True Value came back as they were forced from Minot. It's time to let go and build a thriving community and even put Wal-Mart on North Hill that is much needed!

chad, I guess you work for Menard's. Competition is always good. Home Depot learned from their mistakes and hopefully, will be successful. 100,000sq ft is a good size for those who need everything, but small enuff so you don't think you need to take two days to get thru. Menard's were there for us during the flood. And now, there is competition for them. Life is good.

I'm sure both Home Depot and Menards both contacted the retail "experts" that have posted on here for advice. The Bismarck store was hard to get to first of all. Number 2 problem was they hired the malcontents that Menards had gotten rid of. Number 3 problem was Home Depots shortsighted planning. That store closed just before the Bakken exploded. Lowes in Bismarck was smart enough to locate where there is good access and exit as well as away from Menards.

Home Depot has tried this numerous times. Move in right next to Menards and they loose every time. Just a couple examples, Bismarck (closed store), Mankato MN (I believed closed store), and soon to be Minot. They are coming to Williston also and so is Menards. I can pick the winner already. The thing they do wrong is build smaller stores that can't stock near the items Menards can. So they get spanked. If they would build their huge stores they could probably compete but they try to go the cheap route.

As williston and watford continue to grow minots little bubble will end. Do any of minots planners ever contact the western part of the state to see what projects they are working on to get housing and shopping centers in place. My guess is home depot was fed the same kind of misinformation from the city planners as we get from the school cons. Is there that much flood reconstruction still going on three years after the flood?

Actually when a new business comes in this big you should see a bit of tax relief.. These big companies pay hefty taxes because they do alot of business..
