Menards History

Menards was founded in 1962 by John Menard, Jr in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.  In 1969, Menard began to add manufacturing capabilities to the site including lumber and doors.  A distribution center was also added.

In 1994, the post frame building division of the company was sold.

In 1998, a second distribution center was opened in Plano, IL.  This was followed by 2 more distribution centers in 2007 in Holiday City, OH and Shelby, IA.

Today, Menards has over 270 stores in 14 US states.  The Menards corporate office is still located in Eau Claire, WI.

I purchased a 5 foot Santa bronze. When I go back home to Tennessee and opened it I found it broke in half. The store offer to exchanged but but I live to far. I wanted an exchange they offered a refund with a picture of damage. I sent the picture I was hoping you could see if any way get us a replacement. I really didn’t want the refund. This was done at the Tipp City Ohio store.

We are in the process of building a house and our contractor found the best deal on lumber and floor I-joists to be from Menards. Yippee! We’re new to Wisconsin and like to support local business wherever we are. The order was placed and paid for weeks before the target delivery date of October 9th. Come Thursday the 9th lumber was delivered but no floor joists! Is this a joke? Or do these people really not understand how building from the ground up involves placement of the I-joists FIRST? After a couple hours of work everything came to a standstill. Frustrating for sure. Our contractor was assured that the I-joists would be delivered NO LATER THAN SUNDAY MORNING though he pushed for Friday or Saturday as we were wasting the best weather of the month for construction. LIARS! The latest BS from the distribution center in Johnson Creek was that there needed to be a full truck in order to deliver. WHAAAT? It was their error that the whole order wasn’t delivered in the first place! Next promise was for Monday morning. Monday came and went. Tuesday morning at 9 am FOR SURE! Would you believe Tuesday at 1 pm? In the rain. The driver had yet another story: the I-joists just came in from Canada that morning. Really? Is that the REAL story and if so why couldn’t somebody relay the message that they were in production or some other reason for a hold-up rather than making promises they clearly could not keep? They don’t care; no one is accountable. Bottom line–in the future we’ll drive 100 miles out of our way to another home improvement store rather than buy so much as a screw from Menards. Perhaps instead of sponsoring a NASCAR team corporate should invest in better customer service. Based on the many negative comments I have read (and heard in the course of conversation), the impact on their bottom line may soon preclude any participation in extra-curricular activities.

I was injured at a Menard’s store on August 14, 2014 and I have been getting the run around from their liability insurance carrier ever since. It appears that Gallagher Bassett doesn’t see general liability coverage as what it’s for; to cover liabilities like injuries on the property of the company they cover. Sick of big business behavior!
