Crews are working to revamp the site of a former Menards store in preparation for new retail tenants in Moline.

Demolition began Thursday, March 14, 2013 at the site at John Deere Road and 10th Street.

Crews from Valley Construction were continuing demolition of the area that once was a lumberyard for the Menards store there on March 21.

One crew member said a Pet Smart store was expected to occupy part of the space.  The company also has a store at 5235 Elmore Avenue in Davenport.

A sign was posted nearby in February, confirming Ross Dress for Less would also build there. Hobby Lobby has a permit to put its second Quad City-area store at the former Menards site as well.
