Menards in Fort Wayne, Indiana - MENARD'S DOESN'T CARE!!!!

I purchased a complete remodel for my bathroom for Menard's. IN the total amount of $4,619.07. My items were suppose to be delivered to the store by 3/31/15. My contractors started work on 4/13/15. But my counter top did not come in until 4/21/15. The contractors are gone and as you can guess I have NO BATHROOM IN MY HOUSE!! Menard's also ordered me the wrong cabinet which took 3 wks to come. Yep you got it. The new cabinet will not be in until 5/18/15, I hope. Again I HAVE NO BATHROOM IN MY HOME!!! Menard's refunded me $37.07 for the cabinet, nothing for the very late counter top. I have to pay the contractors to come back. I LIVE IN A ONE INCOME FAMILY HOME. This is a big deal to us. Our grandkids can't even come over. WE HAVE NO BATHROOM!! Octavia

Menards does not and can not promise delivery dates on special order merchandise. They are at the mercy of independent vendors to supply and ship those products and a number of factors can impede that. I advise you not to hire a contractor until you have your items in hand.

You spent 4 grand on your bathroom??? But the cabinet was only $40 hmm sounds weird to me.

I only managed a top selling plumbing dept for 3 years. Also whyd you tear everything apart before the materials even came in...

First, Menards only sells the materials for your project and do not get involved with any labor. I am surprised that your contractor would start remodeling a bathroom without verifying that the materials were at the job site and that they were indeed what he needed to complete the job.

Anytime you custom order material there can be delays in delivery for any number of reasons. In the future make sure you have everything you need to complete the project before you tear the old room apart, no matter who is supplying the materials.

Menards - Garage Door Review from Grant, Michigan

4.2
Details
I bought a new garage door and when I ordered it I asked 5 times if it came with a garage door opener and I was told yes and the lady that help me even got a attitude about it the door came in a week after they told us it would be here then when I went to pick it up there was no garage door opener and all the management could say is he could take me to go get one so the deal for the garage door and opener was not the deal I was told lied to again this is the third time this has happened in the last year I got the same sorry every time

It seems odd that you would "ask 5 times" if the door came with an opener. If an opener were included it would have been spelled out in the order for the door which gives a detailed description of the door.

Had an opener been included it would have been described as well, including the brand of opener, the horsepower of the opener, type of drive and how many transmitters were included.

I take it the detailed description of the door did not include any mention of an opener being included. As Judge Judy would say "If it's not written on the page, it's not part of the contract."

They have the wrong products in the wrong spots. They refused to give me a discount because of the inconvience of having to locate the correct price (which was covered up anyway, the boy pulled the paper over it out right in front of me). I emailed corporate, they said (we have the right to charge the correct price). I then emailed them back and told them, Thats fine, I will never shop at menards again. I will pay more at lowes, just to have better customer service. Better customer service means alot to me and it should to them as well. After all it is the customer that keeps them in business.

Menards staff 4 life just took an hour to post something he/she could have explained in less than 30 seconds. So glad I'm no longer working that nightmare it's m0r0ns like him/her that really gets to the intelligent hardworking staff.

These lazy workers are carried and cause a portion of the guest related issues because of their laziness. Setting sale is simple and is very easy to be 100% accurate, I did it for years. The real problem that this lazy Menards worker totally neglected is this. Products are often in the wrong location not because of the Menards staff, but because the consumer makes a mess of the store!

Oh and you can go to Lowes you will soon find out they're no better. Matter of fact just search Lowes on this website you will find hundreds of similar complaints just like yours. I urge all consumers to be better consumers! Educate yourself!

Treat people the way you want to be treated! Think logically! Don't take your years of anger about yourself on this person that is making $9 dollars an hour.

Lower you expectations!!!! And if you refuse to lower you expectations I challenge you to work in retail for 3+ years making 9 bucks an hour.

In wisconsin Menards "voluntarily" excludes themself from state law Wisconsin Statutes 98.08 – Price refunds; price information Current as of: 2014

(1) A person who uses an electronic scanner to record the price of a commodity or thing and who sells the commodity or thing at a price higher than the posted or advertised price of that commodity or thing at least shall refund to a person who purchases the commodity or thing the difference between the posted or advertised price of the commodity or thing and the price charged at the time of sale.

(2) A person who sells a commodity or thing and who uses an electronic scanner to record the price of that commodity or thing shall display, in a conspicuous manner, a sign stating the requirements of sub. (1).

I'm sure they also have governor exclusive exempt forms from Ohio, Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and every other state that has similar laws as well as requires 98% accuracy between shelf prices and scanned prices.

You see the primary problem is menards uses tiny paper price tags which have to be inserted into a plastic track. Friday nights when the store sets up for sale the employees spend hours f@rting around playing hide and seek to put up stacks of these tiny pieces of paper.

It IS the customers fault NOT the employees fault when the employee accidentally places one in the wrong price tag holder. Also if there is a "misprint" in the price tag, online ad or newspaper ad or price increase from supplier menards has the right to adjust the price in the middle of a promotion "just because"

Next time you try to come to my menards store Ill throw a stick towards the lowes store across the street for you to chase after and don't come back

There are a number of possibilities as to why you find a product over the wrong price. It could be that a customer before you was looking at it and set it in the wrong spot, and employee (yes they are human too) put it in the wrong spot or even put the wrong tag under the item.

In any case a store has the right to charge the proper price for a product. The funny thing is that you NEVER see anyone complaining that they got to the register and the price was lower than they thought it was going to be.

I just wanted them to make it right, none of the employees even cared that I was upset. The employees say exactly what I was talking about on the shelves and they didn't even care. They could of offered me some kind of discount just for the inconvenience.

Hundreds of thousands of products and you expect menards to have them all in some fantasy storage building... Your contract had an estimated delivery date.

Why didn't you ask why it takes so long? They would've told you before you bought it.

Nice job giving any details of the situation. You MUST be right.....did you pay cash and store credit?

Did you pay with a credit card and cash? We will never know.

Each place of retail has rules and there are guidelines they're all required to follow. Keep that in mind before you throw a temper tantrum.

Menards will refund in the manner the purchase was paid for. If you paid by cash or check you will be refunded in cash (10 day waiting period if you paid by check).

If you paid by credit card or debit card the purchase will go back on the card.

If you used a store credit you will get a store credit back. If you used cash and another form of payment the amount put on a card or store credit will be refunded to the card or store credit before any cash is returned.

Do Not Purchase from Menards

Purchased (2) deck post planters - $17.99ea + $2.80 processing fee. Received them and look very cheap (made in China), so would like to return them - an additional 25% restock fee will be added and I have to pay for return shipping; Amazon or eBay does not do this and frankly haven't dealt with any other company that tacks on these additional fees! You are unable to speak with a human ----- take your business elsewhere, any where would have better customer service and no additional fees associated with purchasing. Menards, menards, menards, menards, menards - bad bad!

Google your local menards and you will find a phone list. Here you can call any department in the store.

Or while you were in the store pick up a business card. Call the store and get the details on ordering things.

Restocking fees are very common when you special order a product from a major retail chain that they normally do not stock at the stock. Did you pay shipping and packaging when you picked it up at the store?

I don't think so! The 25% restocking fee is to assist with the shipping and packaging cost along with the possibility this item is now taking up unwanted shelf space. Please become and educated consumer!

Treat people the way you want to be treated and learn the store policies before you make any major purchases. Finally you can't compare Menards to Amazon or Ebay they're completely different outfits.

Menards - Poor customer service in the council bluffs, ia store

Approximately March 15th we priced kitchen cabinets and quartz counter top with Patrick. He suggested we wait for a sale as we were not strapped for time. 2 wks later they were on sale, went to order and found out those cabinets were discontinued, and had been when he priced them to us. Deb then priced different cabinets, and we bought them. Patrick and Deb both suggested we wait for the quartz countertop to come on sale, and said one of them was always there to work with us. Came back to order and neither of them were there, so dealt with Casey. When she called us back with a quote on quartz, it was higher on sale than what Patrick quoted us. Casey was very rude on the telephone when I told her we were being lied to every step of the way. We did not buy the $1800.00 quartz countertop, the $880.00 apron sink or the $350.00 delta faucet at Menards due to the treatment we received. We have bought all of it elsewhere plus $6000.00 worth of kitchen appliances. This all took place at Menards in Council Bluffs, IA

Here's the problem you dealt with 3 different people on 3 different occasions. I can assure you things are going to start to get mixed up, especially at a place like Menards.

I worked at Menards for 5+ years and most part timers just don't work enough or care enough to understand whats really going on and often give horrible information regarding pricing and suggesting products. Turn over is crazy high it's retail after all if a part timer last more than a year it's rare. It's normally some college kid looking for extra cash. Mangers can be just as bad!

Menards idea of a manager is to hire young and dumb so they can control them easier. If you have experience they won't hire you for a manager they promote from with in only. The manger trainee program is a joke it's 2-3 months and then bam you're instantly promoted to an assistant manager somewhere and know nothing about the store or it's products. You have a lot of disgruntled managers at the top who beat up on the part timers.

The only way this won't happen is if you suck up to one of these managers. Often the laziest employees get employee of the month because of their friendships. Overall it's a very horrible place to work and it's because of obnoxious clueless guest and inexperienced miserable managers. /rant over.

The best way to shop at Menards is make sure if your working on a project like that yours always talk to a department manager, don't even waste your time with an assistant manager or part timer. Just be clear and consistent. The first guy you talked to was clearly a part timer and new. He should have easily noticed it was a discontinued product.

I struggle with him advising you to wait for a sale, Menards does not promote that and purposely doesn't tell employees in advance when sales are going to happen to avoid this. So I've concluded on many years of experience that it was you pushing to wait for a sale and you reworded it to make you look better :). Discontinued items are normally on sale from the get go, they don't go on sale several weeks later. So again I'm struggling with that fact.

The final quote may have been accurate it's very possible that Patrick and Deb quoted you a sale price and did not realize it because again they're make silly suggestions that they're not allowed to be making. When you called Casey the item was no longer on sale and the price was higher. Regardless be a better consumer if you want better service! This all could have been prevented if you made sure to work with the same person each time and that he was a manager.

Don't play games either waiting for stuff to go on sale is a game!

If you need it/want it buy it when you see it. Waiting is just risky business especially in a big box store where corporate likes to change things on a dime with out warning.
