Big Lots Opening Retail Store in Menomonee Falls

The closeout retailer hopes to open before Christmas in the North Pointe Centre across from Menomonee Falls High School. Jo-Ann Fabrics will also relocate into the same shopping center by spring 2013.

If you’ve driven past the North Pointe Centre across from Menomonee Falls High School over the past few weeks you’ve probably noticed there’s been construction activity inside the former Pick’n Save location.

I suspect, April, that more people do have them than might be apparent. Perhaps it's a matter of not enough easy going people taking the time to add a comment, and potentially balance, to sites such as this one. And by the way, you're welcome...
