COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa. (KMTV) — Our partners at the Omaha World-Herald say Menards has purchased Mall of the Bluffs and plans to tear down the mall, constructing a "bigger and better" store in its place.
The company confirmed the purchase on Monday.
“We have loved doing business in Council Bluffs for over 25 years now, but our existing facility is small and dated, and (we) believe a bigger and better store will better serve the needs and tastes of the citizens of this community, plus create many new job opportunities,” Menard Inc. spokesperson Jeff Abbott stated in an email message to the Omaha World-Herald.
Abbott also said the company will have new lease space and out-lot opportunities in place for other businesses.
