Menards opens in Athens

It’s big. it’s really big. Menards, on East State Street in Athens, opened its doors for the first time early Monday morning. The entire interior couldn’t be photographed in one picture. This shows about 15% of the store. The 65,000 items cover a big variety, from major appliances and cabinets to power tools and groceries. The opening, which was originally slated for earlier this summer, was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Community members have been excitedly awaiting the opening, discussing the new store on social media. It’s been a long time coming, but Menards is open for business.
