SCHERERVILLE | The upcoming opening of a new Menards store has town and store officials excited.

"We've received many positive comments from people around town about the new store and can't wait for everyone to see it," said Mark Hall, Schererville Menards general manager.

The two-story facility at 1300 U.S. 41 opens Tuesday. The grand opening celebration is expected to include celebrity appearances, deals on merchandise, in-store demonstrations and prizes, according to a Menards news release.

In addition to building supplies, materials and tools, the store will carry appliances, pet products, groceries and lawn and garden supplies. Computers also will be available for customers to design projects.

"It's going to be an exciting place to visit and shop at," Town Councilman Tom Schmitt said.

Menards was in a building about three blocks south of the new store. The business outgrew the previous facility, which prompted the construction of the new building.

"The new Menards is a positive reflection of the overall redevelopment progress in Schererville," Town Councilman Kevin Connelly said, "I am pleased Menards chose to remain in Schererville."

Hours of operation for the new store will be 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays.

Town Manager Bob Volkmann said owners of the building Menards vacated at 1000 U.S. 41 haven't yet announced plans for it.
