Since Menards completely changed their stores to be like the Home Depot they are declined in every aspect. The way they have their entrance and exit is ***.
If you park where you are suppose to enter when you leave you have a long walk to get back to your car as it is at the other end of the parking lot. There are many people who just can not make that walk. I don't know who designed their stores but they evidently have no clue about the real world. Also their old stores seemed more customer friendly with a much nicer selection of product.
Low ceilings, good lighting and an overall consummer friendly store - not anymore.
I for one have went back to doing the majority of my hardware, garden store and home updating shopping at our local family owned stores as have many of my friends. I think the Menards and Walmarts of the world are in for some surprises as people tire of these giant unfriendly stores.
