Menards is expected to open in less than two weeks.

Bill Barthelemy, building official for the city of Bemidji, gave a construction update this week to the Bemidji City Council on projects occurring throughout the city.


Menards, to be located on the northwest side of town at the former site of Spaulding Motors, is planning to open April 5, Barthelemy reported.

However, the company might try to push that up to April 4, he noted.
