Benson Tells Council Meijer Will Build At Forest Mall Location

It’s been one of the worst-kept secrets, but it’s now official. City of Fond du Lac Community Development Director Dyann Benson told City Council this week that things are moving forward at the Forest Mall property, and Meijer Inc, based in Michiga, will build a supercenter on the Forest Mall property. Benson says progress had been made already on the property, with Caliber Collision being approved for a Special Use Permit, allowing them to begin work on the former Sears Tire property. Meijer is set to begin work on the property, and should be open for business within the next 18-24 months. Benson was also asked about the future of Staples, and informed Council that Staples has chosen to not renew its lease.
