I have done 4 new p5 store fixture sets. Menards is mean lol.

I have been on projects run by 3 different contractors, two of which are now bankrupt. They do whatever they can to not pay and ruin contractors.

I am personally out 20k in just labor for myself. Beware of working for them or atleast have all your stuff together up front and be ready to file a lein.

Menards in Decatur, Illinois - Flimsy products, not worth taking home, very poor guality

25"sweepit 264-1332, very poorly made, we were embrassed your store would carry so poor quality of material. we knew the entire unit would fall apart before a couple uses on our small city lot. The foreign made products have never provided the quality of domestic products. You people exploit child and slave labor while living in luxery. We are excustomers. My grandchildren worked there many years ago and warned us about your disregard for quality. They quit in disappointment after deing offered manageral positions. I know you put profits before fair employment practices. We though we woild try again but you still sell junk in out opinion.

It isn't so much as you get what you paid for,but the material,quality,and pride put into making the product.People blame the retailer all the time for this and it isn't always the retailers fault,most the time it starts at the manufacturer trust because I'm employed by one of them.It's called cuttting cost where it matters the most.OUR POCKET BOOK the retailers really don't have a clue what they are getting.It's called deception,marketing uses this all the time to make the big$.

We looked at this sweepit 264-1332 and were so disappointed at the quality of the unit. The whole unit is so flimsy that it wouldn't last thru a few passes on our small (50x150) lot which is 50% consumed by house,garage and drive. We find your quality of products...

if by "every few weeks" you mean "every few seconds", then yeah that's about how much time you spend on here. first, your name is based around mine, and you really only seem to post either about me or directly to me.

i'm really starting to get freaked out by you. are you sure you haven't touched young children in the past?

you're right, i go to college... but who said anything about university of phoenix? did you graduate from devry or something?

that could explain your nonsensical manner. probably spent $100,000 for a useless liberal arts degree. good job old man! make your great grandchildren proud!

so while i work my own way through my private business college looking towards the future, you need to get your *** wiped by the nursing home help.

it's sad, but it's what you've been reduced to. i hope you go in peace.

if you're lucky, they might have a few more young asian boys for you in the afterlife. keep the dream alive!!!

Menards in Burlington, New Jersey - No discount on windows

Hi: i recently purchased special order windows & spent approx. $4500 for these windows. i wasnt offered the 12% discount off,because i got the the windows before the promotion started. i thought that within 30 days of purcahse you would honor the discount.Also i applied for the menards big card & nothing off for that either.next ill just go to lowes,its not worth the effort to come here anymore.its really sad to think that u would not give me the promotional discount,its real .frustrating to me as a consumer.maybe even home depot would be better also.thanks, Jeff Judson

Also, you get a $10.00 instore credit sent to you the first time you use the Big Card....not much, but better than a kick in the a--..................And me thinks that if you were a regular contractor and/or a decent human being to deal with, they just may have made a price adjustment for you. The 14 day rule can and has been broken before......................

why would you buy the windows before the sale period? and yes, you have 14 days to bring in your receipt and get the reduced price.

gah...

the policy is to honor any price change within 14 days of purchasing the item. This is stated right on your contract and your receipt.

How long after did they go on sale? This is a given and I've never seen it denied unless someone comes in after the 14 days, which I'm guessing you did, since you made the "I thought it was 30 days" comment.

DS, I also am surprised at the defense of Menard's. I recently read an article by Milwaukee Magazine that called into question John and Larry Menard's business practices.

Quite telling. I suggest you give it a read. I stumbled across it today while, of all things, searching for articles written about Al Gore.

Fascinating read. I still shop at Menard's but as of today (2/2/2010), I view Menard's differently, in a negative light.

Hey, Menards now offers protection plans that go beyond the manufacturer's warranty on big ticket items such as power vents. They are generally inexpensive and usually cover year or more after the warranty.

Consider this next time you buy something big. Also, I do have to agree with Menard's right to refuse exchanging items after the 90 days, but it is also up to the manager in the department.

Usually, our Menards with take items back if it has been less than a year if you still have the reciept, but if you run into the problem, try contacting the manufacturer. More times than none, they will take care of the problem.
