Menards in Effingham Il has the worst paint ever! I bought paint yesterday and after waiting forever for a lady to mix it (that acted like it was a huge bother in her day) I drive home to find out it's completely watered down!

I call today and they were rude and offered no discount for my HOUR drive back to the store!!! Menards is literally the worst place to deal with! Just about everyone in this store is lazy or rude....half of their employees either can't help you and give you a blank look or act like the world is ending if you ask for help. The paint section is the worst!

After dealing with them I went to Sherwin Williams and they were so helpful! Better help, better attitudes....Such a better place to deal with!

Product or Service Mentioned: Paint.

Effingham Illinois huh? Sounds like an SW troll to me, considering one of SW's largest distribution centers is in Effingham Ill.

Sw sells cheap watered down paint too. And if you happened to buy Dutch Boy from Menard's, you bought an SW manufactured product!


You can buy good paint at Menards and you can buy cheap paint there as well. If you bought the lowest price paint they sell it won't be near as thick as their more defensive paint.

You get what you pay for...

the lower the price, the fewer the solids in the paint. It's your choice.


Oranges are better than apples good call.
