Knupper Nursery to Close As Part of Napleton’s Mazda, Subaru Move to Old Menards Site in Palatine

Knupper’s land and business is in the process of being sold as part of the Napleton’s Automotive Group offer and negotiations to purchase the former Menard’s property just southeast of Knupper Nursery & Landscape.

Palatine village council members Monday night April 16, 2018 voted to authorize negotiations for a redevelopment agreement and final purchase price with Napleton Automotive Group for 9 acres and the 52,000-square-foot Menards owned by the village. Palatine purchased the property years ago to have control of what might be developed on the property.

Under the tentative plan, Napleton would move its Subaru and Mazda dealerships from Rand Road between Thomas Street and Olive Street in Arlington Heights to the proposed site in Palatine. Potential sales tax revenue is part of the reason for choosing Napleton’s proposal over another proposal submitted by homebuilder PulteGroup Inc. The deal would bring the Subaru and Mazda car dealerships from Arlington Heights to the properties on Rand Road, just west of Old Hicks Road. Napleton’s Automotive Group also has a Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM dealership located in Arlington Heights on Dundee Road, just east of Route 53. That location is not part of the new proposal.

Napleton is offering $2.5 million for the Menards property that the Village of Palatine purchased for $8 million. Pulte offered $1.8 million for the property with their plans to construct up to 50 two-story townhouses.

Napleton would construct separate buildings for the Subaru and Mazda showrooms and service buildings, and a car wash on the 9-acre Menards site. The new larger facilities in the new location would replace the one building that is operating the two dealerships on a much smaller property in Arlington Heights. Napleton plans to open the new Subaru and Mazda facilities by late 2019. Napleton would also pay $2.9 million for the Knupper property and business, according to Napleton documents submitted to the Village of Palatine.

Napleton generates about $60 million in annual sales from the Subaru and Mazda operations alone in Arlington Heights, which would produce municipal sales taxes of $600,000 a year for the Village of Palatine. Napleton is also seeking village support for reduced Cook County real estate taxes.

Palatine officials emphasized that a desire to control the old Menards site’s future development is why the village agreed to buy the property for $8 million after the Menards closed to move to a new location at the northeast corner of Route 53 and Lake Cook Road in Long Grove in 2009.

Since the Knupper property is included in the car dealer’s proposal, Knupper’s owners John and Sue Heaton speculated that the probability of the successful negotiations and purchase of the properties were so high that the closure of Knupper nursery has become part of the plan.

John and Sue Heaton announced on April 16, 2018 that Knupper Nursery will have normal business operations through the Spring, but will close down sometime during the summer of 2018.

As of Monday April 16, 2018, all trees, shrubs, and evergreens are reduced 10% off the marked price. There will be no warranty and no returns on any merchandise.
