In regard to the Kansas City North store on 152 HWY. I have made purchases in the thousands of dollars since this store first opened.
Since the COVID-19 hysteria started I have been purchasing materials weekly without ever wearing a mask every bit of 10 weeks. Our Governor has clearly stated wearing a mask is a choice and not mandated. Your ability to make choices is very important. The CDC has stated these masks do little to nothing for stopping this virus.
On 5-10 -20 I went to the store to speak with the pro- desk about the purchase of about $13,000 worth of material for an upcoming job. As I proceeded to the back of the store I was intercepted by a very mouthy female manager having a meltdown that I was in this store without a mask on and that I must leave now. I stated to her I don't have a mask and don't need a mask and was then told it is store policy and posted everywhere and I should know this!!! When I came into the store like I always do I never stop to read but just head the direction to the department of the product I need - simple enough.
Upon learning my type was not welcome - I left Menards without speaking to the pro- desk and now plan on moving all my business to other more business friendly environments. I believe this was truly over the top and comparable to the brown shirt Hitler youth snitch's of the 1940's using mask shaming. This is too bad because I do like Menards but management at your corporate level needs to realize one solution does not fit every part of this country.
I will recommend and now require that any contractor, sub- contractor working for me not to purchase materials from Menards and will be reviewing all receipts. Should material from Menards come to a work site it will be returned as quickly as I was asked to leave on the 10th.
Preferred solution: Face Mask Requirements - choice .
