Wentzville's New Sam's Club Begins to Take Shape
Wentzville's new Sam's Club is on pace to open in October.
Construction crews working on Wentzville's new Sam's Club have completed work on most of the building's exterior and are now starting to prepare the store's parking lot.
Crews have been working on the building since late February and have been graced with cooperating weather.
On the other side of the road, a skeleton of the Sam's Club gas station has begun to take shape.
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.
