at the end of the day, one of my guys backed into the wheelbarrow with a bobcat. a simple accident, and easy fix, or it should have been. the service at the carmel indiana store never has been great, but i still spend about 2 grand a month there. anyway, it's 7:30 p.m., and i need another wheelbarrow by 6 a.m. the next morning and i'm close to carmel so i went to menard's. all they have are wheelbarrow " kits" that i'm supposed to assemble myself, or, pay a guy 18 bucks an hour to put together. there's a display, and i explain situation to the stock person, who informs me "we don't sell displays". i told him i would pay extra, and he still refuses. i ask the store manager, and that *** refuses as well.
i left menard's and went to the lowes' in carmel. whadduyouknow. the have assembled wheelbarrows exactly like i need, and they were cheaper. i bought one.
i asked the clerk at lowe's what would happen if somebody wants to buy a display, and he told me" SIR, EVERYTHING IN THIS STORE IS FOR SALE". i won't say i'll never go to menard's again, but they are my v ery last choice. i can spend several thousand a year elsewhere, and will
