Runnings to open at former Kmart site

Farm and ranch retailer Runnings will open an 86,000-sq.-ft. store in a former Kmart site in Monticello, Minn., according to an article in the Monticello Times.

Runnings is a 31-store farm-and-ranch focused retailer based in Marshall, Minn. It operates in Minnesota, North and South Dakota and Montana with a merchandise mix including livestock equipment, hunting and fishing equipment, automotives, plumbing, pet supplies and paint, among other categories.

The proposed store project at 300 W. Seventh St. received the green light from the Monticello City Council in early August.

The article reports that building and site improvements are anticipated in September.
