Photos: Construction Crews Make Progress on New Sam's Club
Wentzville's new Sam's Club is on pace to open in October.
Just more than a month into the project and crews working on Wentzville's planned Sam's Club are already making significant progress to the much-hyped building thanks to a string of good weather.
Crews have already erected two of the buildings walls and gas tanks for the Sam's Club's gas station were on-site and ready to be placed.
The new Wentzville store, which will be located just west of Walmart, was first announced in February. A gas station on the Kohl's side of Bear Creek Drive will also feature 12 regular gasoline pumps and six diesel pumps, Tucker said.
THF Realty successfully applied for a Community Improvement District (CID) to help finance the Sam’s Club and Sam’s Club gas station. An estimated $7 million would be collected by creating a CID surrounding the Sam's Club lot. Within the CID, the city may allocate one-half cent sales tax to the developer for up to 27 years.
If construction timelines remain unchanged, the store should open around October.
