Menards to begin work on retaining wall


Menards now has the OK from the Metropolitan Sewer District and worked out details with St. Louis County Highways and is ready to break ground soon, Richmond Heights Assistant City Manager David Gipson said Friday.

He said Menards has pulled the permit to begin work on a retaining wall, which is the first step.

Gipson said the retaining wall will go around the one remaining house. “He has no intention of selling and Menards has no intention of buying,” Gipson said.

  1. “He has no intention of selling…” is NOT true. I know the family that owns the house. They offered to sell. Menards refuses to buy for their asking price. What business/store would want a house sitting in the middle of their operation? I’ve seen the plans…..unfortunately for the family, their property will probably be the perfect cover and gateway for theft. I hope they sue Menards.
