Went there today for the first time, found things 25 to 40 % cheaper than homo depot . Manards selection on hardware cloth was poor , they do sell about everything , no fishing stuff

Nobody I know spends more money at Menards than yours truly. Their prices are ultra competitve and since they're a Wisconsin company, we've had them for a while. Like Pesky said, their price on hardware cloth sucks. Fleet and Farm is right next door and their price is about half. I have never been able to figure that out because all the rest of their prices beat the competition hollow. A good example is the 40 inch television screen that I'm writing this on right now; less than 300 bucks.

Us normal people have no idea what you are talking about. [Please excuse my language... I'm an idiot] is MANARDS? It sounds like a word that is not PC.

It's kinda like lowes ,and miejers and offic max and auto zone and bordines all rolled in to one . Monster store . Very nice system at the check out all nice cute young lady's. That do all the scanning for you , rest room right front I like that . I would still rather shop at mom and pop hardware but seeing there all shut down but one that's really not a option all the time seeing the only one left is 40 miles away , sure I pay a little more but it's in and out and i can order things there . This new store opened in Davison and they really needed jobs there so that's good . I know I shouldn't shop at home depot because of that whole boycot thing so Manards it is ,or lowes .

I wish we had a Menards, dad said when he lived back in Indiana they beat Lowes and Home Despot hands down. Of course with only 83 toothless rednecks in Billings it probably wouldn't pencil out. Also I like Menards sponsering a NASCAR team, Lowes sponsers one also but I always root for the underdog.

Here's thier Jingle.... "You spend big money, you spend big Money... When you shop Menards----"

Ok,ok... theirs is really "you save big money" ... but for me the top one is how I sing it, usually belting it out in their store when the song comes over the loud speaker. lots of great looks! grin

Scott is not wrong. I'm sure that the amount of money we spend at Menard's is more than anything, besides perhaps, petroleum products. Since I'm the guy who will drive 12 miles out of his way to save 4 cents a gallon on gas, you need to check out the nearest Menard's as soon as it is built. If you find a better deal on anything ( besides hardware cloth ) please let us know!

P.S. Their Menard's card will get you 2% back on all your purchases. I think it is in the form of a credit but you'll spend it, believe me. I am saving up their rebate cards for my own Menard's store. I'm about halfway there!

Phil, that question sent me on a very interesting trip. I was blown away by all the Menards stores that exist in the nation. Places like South & North Dakota and Wyoming. None in Pennslvania and I'm guessing there is some kind of reason for that which we are not aware of.

We have one in st. Joseph, MO and I hear they are going to build six in the KC Metro. I sure like them a lot better than Home Depot.

Im glad somebody likes them, I cant stand that place. Everytime you ask someone where something is there they say its not my department and I swear if you asked everyone in the store they would say the same thing! I really dont like any of the three but if I have to go I go to Lowes. PS I think the Menards car driven by Paul Menard is the owners son or something seems I read that somewhere.

I agree, and your right on Paul Menard and the car they had the car here for the new one they just opened, a HUGE store , they allways had a little one. They still dont know where anything is though. Home Depot is in love with rainbows so I avoid that place if possible.

I miss them mom and pop stores . I could just walk in and there it was or they would Oder it for me . I could also run off a batch of tools in my dads shop then travel around to all the small hardwares and they put them in there store on consignment . Like if I was a trap maker I could make up a truck load of traps then go from town to town and them old mom and pop stores would be happy to put them on there selfs for me . I all ways made these tool steel tipped floor scrapers that dairy farms just loved . Things change

Yep, and for the worse if you ask me. The local hardware store used to be the place to be, you drank your coffee there every morning. Found out about all the local things, bought ammo and hunting/fishing liscense too. Anything you could ever need was right there.
