Home improvement retail Menards will open the first of two planned stores in Columbus, Ohio on April 12, according to an article in the Columbus Business Journal

As Menards prepares to open its first store in Columbus, Ohio, the number-three U.S. home center chain made a deal to acquire more land for a second Columbus store, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

The company's first Columbus store is expected to open in the spring. That's about the same time that work is expected to begin on the second store, on the city's east side. That second store will probably open in spring 2012.
