Went to Home depot, to get a kilz paint on sale at 75% off, yes from $18.99 per gallon down to $4.49 per gallon. Home depot had over 60 gallons in stock. I purchased all at that price and went to Menards to take advantage of their price match guantee. They had the same paint in stock at $19.99, so much for being the lowest!, they told me that they did, do I showed them the reciept from Home Depot on the paint and asked them if they carried it, they said yes, I asked if they matched price they said yes, so I said that I wanted to buy it all. I had the recipt at $4.49 per gallon from lowe's , it shocked the manager that he called Home depot and it was verified, it took him 40 minutes to return from the office, he then stated that he would only limit me to 20 gallons, I asked him why and he said it was posted, well I replied please show me this. Well we went to the front of the store and he couldn't find the posting, then i yelled at him for not knowing store policy, then he said that he wanted more proof, I again asked him to clearly state why he wanted more proof, he called home depot and the store manger verified the sale and it was chain wide with no limits on the amounts you purchased, he said he wanted to see the flyer, I angerly went to the vechile and pulled out the ad, and showed it to him, well i asked if that was enough proof, he replied yes, then I demand that he get one of those lazy young kids standing around to load up all the instock paint and have it ready at the cashier and to call the other menards in town to give them a heads up that I was coming, so I didn't have to argue with the store manager for over an hour. well it took about 20 minutes more and they finally got it done. I got 69 gallons of paint at $4.49. Whew after 1 hour and 45 minutes i Got the price match I was offered in there radio and paper ads. But what a fight, well it gets better, the other store manager stated in his phone conversation with me ,that he would only sell me 20 gallons but at half off, that was his interpertation of the ad, I asked him if had called Home depot, He replied he didn't have to, and that he didn't even had to sell to me.
Thank goodness for Home depot and lowes for quality merchandise.
Has anyone else have problems like this, please email me the phone number for menards HQ so I can talk to the owner himself.
