Site excavation work for a new Menards store in New Ulm got underway this week. The store will be located on the west end of New Ulm off Highway 14. The construction of the Menards building is scheduled to begin on June 25th. A “Roundabout” will be built on Highway 14, rather than a traditional intersection, to accommodate the Menards as well. The store is expected to be open by next spring.
