All these new businesses coming to town is a cruel hoax to fool Topix Forum users. This has been going on for years. Businesses are mentioned as for sure opening soon after construction and then nothing happens even years later. Now is DAR part of the hoax??? I'll believe in a new business when it opens its doors.

No, it's not good news. Cape Girardeau thought Menard's was wonderful at first. Now, not so much.
They advertise 10% off. You'll get a store credit through the mail instead of 10% off at time of purchase. Total BS!

You Too, You are WRONG!!!!!! It is not money taken away from local busunesses unless YOU and other people SPEND YOUR MONEY at the big giant new business!!!! Shoppers are the ones that kill local business by not staying loyal and SHOPPING at the local business.

Menards has signed the contract to build. This IS going to happen but it might take a year or two to finish construction.

See this is what happens to " local" business. For so many years they are the only game in town and treat their customers like crap, knowing they will be back since they are the only ones carrying a certain brand or product. Then comes along another store with the same product or service AND puts an emphasis on customer service and it causes the "local" business to eventually fold and the blame is cast upon the newcomer. Where this isn't always the case, I have seen it happen!

No my point is this is not new wealth coming into town. This is retail it is taking money out of town and recycling a little back into the town.

This isn't creating wealth it is moving wealth around...

You could look at it that way. But consider the thousands of us spending gas money to drive to name brand stores and malls in jonesboro, cape, memphis, st louis, springfield, and little rock to spend our money and get what we want, and usually spending money at a restaraunt there also, due to the length of travel. This happens everyday. Why not welcome the new jobs and saved gas money which can now be spent locally also.

Right on board. Historically the only things that really create wealth are.

Manufacturing, farming and mining.

Everything else just move wealth around.

I myself and glad to hear that we are finally getting a Menards. I frequent the Menards in Cape because they have great prices and a lot of their products are cheaper than Home Depot. As for the other local places they are sky high on their prices maybe Mnards an give them a run for their money!
