    Default Come On Menards!

    Idk what happened at Menards in Burlington WI but they had a placard outside front door Menards requires mask use. We go to Menards 2-3 times a week and Burlington store has been reasonable regarding mask use. Not today I had a mask below my nose no problem but my wife is done with the mask thing. We both have been vaccinated for 2 months so weíre not spreading Covide. We were moving thru the store from the paint section to outdoor plants and my wife was confronted mid store that she needs to wear a mask. She explained we were headed outside and that employee backed off. We bought fertilizer and I had to climb the shelf to get 6 bags somewhat dangerous no help so I figure help yourself. Lol. This was strenuous so I took my mask off. I was winded but had grass seed , fertilizers all the stuff I needed and my wife was in the outdoor yard looking at flowers and trees. Prices were outrageous so we didnít select anything and headed to the garden center check out. Neither of us had masks on and the outdoor cashier advises us Menards requires masks. We told cashier weíre outside and she backed off. Cashier checked us out and weíre ready to exit then I got the twinge inside me that was telling me to complain. I told the cashier to pass this information to management tell Menards that senior folks have been vaccinated for 2 months or more so we arenít spreading or catching Covid virus and Menards mask policy is outdated and needs to change. Idk if this info got back to management but Iím sick and tired of wearing masks at Menards. Other big box stores in Burlington from food stores to sports stores donít enforce wearing masks anymore. Itís time for Menards to ease up the mask nazi attitude or they wonít be getting anymore of my money ....ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!

    I cut up my Menards card when they first required face diapers. I will never go there again. I support our local lumber yards and stores where they do not enforce face diapers on their customers and they end the sale with a hand shake.

    During a time when it's just hard to find enough staff to remain open I think its ridiculous that a business would like to protect their remaining staff.

    Yeah, screw you Menards I will never be back either. No more You Save Big Money, You Save Big Money When You Shop Menards. And no more 11% off sales. And no more supporting people who are working! None of those employees at Menards are local people anyways, they are all from Uzbekistan and Menards just teaches them how to act and speak American. And the H E double hockey sticks to you too Mr. Menard!! I hate this capitalist country and people like you that took a chance on an idea of a super home improvement store. When local lumber stores close at noon on Saturday and are closed all of Sunday that's the way its supposed to be.

    Your mask rulz are just too much for me to handle.

    Right now I hate Menards! I will never be back!


    ..... I'll give you until Saturday to apologize Mr. Menard, because I will need to be back buying stuff from you no later than Sunday.

    Im sorry we blatently ignore masks required signs and we no longer go to menards after they refused a sale because we weren't wearing one. Has anyone ever been to Summer Fest? well its on this year but heard this morning they will be requiring masks and social distancing. I ask again...HAS ANYONE EVER BEEN TO SUMMERFEST??? Especially the moronic idiots that are going to require masks and social distancing??? How in the world are you going to make that happen??? and enforce it??? are they really that stupid??? Im guessing state fair will be that way as well? you can count me out of both then! last time at state fair before the big "C" word hit we spent as more time sitting in a place with shade as we did walking elbow to elbow with people in the heat and humidity. Masks and social distancing??? GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!! I'm out!! what complete MORONS!! and I cannot wait to see the end result of enforcement when both are essentially big drinking parties. I mean HOW STUPID!!! Are people really that OBLIVIOUS????

    Idk what happened at the Menards Burlington store the staff was for the most part reasonable about mask use thru the Pandemic. Now a placard sign placed on the sidewalk entering the store and signs on door windows and the staff patrolling the floor for mask use on a Thursday afternoon. *** is going on?? Local news all saying WI cut back on vaccine order this week so they can use up current inventory. WI is in good shape new cases of Covide way down plenty of residents vaccinated. WI probably doing well because we didn’t hide from an air born virus took our lumps , warmer weather kills the virus things have greatly improved. Time to normalize get back to business pre pandemic recognize the change for the better!

    I only go to Menards when I really have to, ei. Lowes and Home Depot don’t have what I want. Mailed in two rebates for $2+ and $20+ rebates in the same envelope. Received the $2+ one only after 5 months. I absolutely avoid Menards. My son bought a boat from a party in Chippewa Falls. They told us Menards won’t let any competition build in the Eau Claire/Chippewa Falls area. When they find out that someone wants to expand to the area, they buy up that land so the competition can’t. The people said the owner is a POS. Also, when masking first started, I had to go to Menards. Forgot my mask and they wanted to sell me a $.59 mask for 5 bucks! I walked out and spent my $300 elsewhere.

    Been to Menardís twice in 14 months. Once wore my helmet for a laugh because I needed one more gallon of the same paint to finish my house last March when this all started, and once last weekend to buy a slider door my contractor said to get for my deck door replacement. I didnít wear a mask last weekend and no one said a word to me, but it was like parting the Red Sea as I walked through the place. It was pretty comical and brought plenty of giggles between my son and I!

    The Appleton/Grand Chute one has never been reasonable... right after the mandate started the manager hunted me down to inform me I had to put one on or he would call the police to escort me out. I unfortunately still go to and support that POS store, only because it’s the closest home improvement store and I also have every last aisle memorized... otherwise I usually have a trailer and would have to drive farther into town past the fox river mall to get to Home Depot. Lowe’s is on the southeast side of Appleton so that’s not an option for me...

    Here’s the difference for me in Burlington. I bought a new pair of Timberline waterproof work boots on sale at Dunham’s Sports 2 weeks ago $120 for $80 none of the staff or store manager were wearing masks so we didn’t either. By the way luv the boots!

    Can’t believe we are still bitching about masks but not hardly a word on the outrageous prices of everything, that is the true crime. 2x6”-8 foot construction/ framing grade board is more that a ground contact Green treated 2x6-8 by over $1.50

    Damn what have I been missing? We like going to Menards, BUT the closest one to us is a hour away. Usually when we are by it, we are on our way to our place up north and don't like to stop, even for bathroom breaks. I haven't been in a Menards in over a year and usually go to Lowes or Home Depot in Gaylord as there by our place (18 Miles). A lot easier to order online, pick it up on our way instead of stopping, loading and having to drive a couple more hours as it feels longer of a drive. I heard a while back that Gaylord, might be building a Menards, but that's to be seen. In any case, I'll have to remember the way they treat their customers for future reference.

    One of my Dad's favorite stories; In 1960 Menard's built their first pole building on a neighboring farm in the small town I grew up in. They were just starting out and John Menard was on the first crew with hammer and nails. At the time, pole buildings were something new so it drew some attention from the neighbors. That shed is still standing some 60 years later and of course we all know the rest of the story. And with the price of lumber today I doubt many of us are "Saving Big Money" anywhere.

    Their rebate system is ridiculous. Still can't apply for it online - have to mail it in, and then when they get around to mailing it back to you, it looks like junk mail.

    Lumber prices not a Menards problem the supply line is all screwed up from the woods to the mills lumber prices are up 3x or more. Currently purchase what you have to have then wait until next year it’s going to take a year or 2 to normalize.

    Yep, probably a good percent never send it in, and then a good percent never use it when they get it. And it's only good at Menards again anyway. But when you're in the store - you see 11% off.

    Had issues too where they mail you a flyer and see you see something on sale, but the sale starts a week after they send the flyer out. So you go to a menards on Thursday, but the sale doesn't start until Sunday.

    I like when Lowes does 10% off the top, and it's "over" when you pay

    Think I'm officially old now, complaining about menards on a snow site.

    The west side store they only changed the building materials side, and was at least a year ago already and I’ve probably been in there close to 50 times. They did build a brand new Ace 1/2 mile from my new house next to the Greenville co op but they’re closed Sunday which is when I find myself doing most home projects.

    If Menard had his way this pandemic, people working from home and free government money would last another year. I can not imagine the money that place has made in the last year. It's hard to get a break from the crowds there unless you go early in the morning or late, by 10 AM Menards and HD on the weekdays look like a busy Saturday. My two local stores have huge signs walking in advertising starting at $16.50 for full time and $15.50 for part, not too long ago they were starting people out at 11.50. so they are obviously hurting for help. I'm beginning to notice a lot more retirement age people working there.

    You get the state was making them do this right ? You really think John wanted to spend the money on these guys ? We are talking about the guy who burns all his reject lumber trated or not to heat his factory because the epa fines are less than the gas bills lol .

    Completely agree. The big corporate stores are held to a different standard then your one off lumber yard in Northern Wisconsin. Lots of useless people/employees would love to sue Menards insurance company versus your local lumber yard. Heck, all of your Kwik trip gas stations still have signs up for masks to be worn. It will take the Governor to say no mask are needed for the big corporate stores to drop the mask requirement. The goods news I'll bet that comes soon as many states are already doing so come June/July.

    Whitedust - none of what you did likely would have been a problem had your wife just half worn a mask to begin with. I don't like wearing a mask anymore then you do but its simple, if I want to go in someone else's home or business follow the rules they put out. If don't like them, don't go.

    I've wondered if the one in Dubreville could get up and running again or if it's just going to site and decay?

    The Menards store in Beloit, WI are Nazi's about the masks also. Their rebate system is just ridiculous and makes no sense, just give us the sale price, we are going to come back most likely anyway and they would probably save money as a company in the long run without having the paper and postage costs of the rebates. I have only been in there a handful of times since the big "C" started. The only other place that I wear a mask is when I am at work, luckily for me, I am not around too many people at my job so for a majority of the day I don't have to wear it at work either.

    Kohls is worse than Menards.
    They have a nice little old lady standing at the doors monitoring mask wearing,,, and they STILL spray down the counters after every time they serve a customer,,,,,, but you know they're following the science. NOT!

    I stopped in there last week to pay my kohls credit card,,, didn't put anything on counter or touch counter. Paid with my debit card and as I was pulling the card out the lady grabs her spray bottle, starts spraying counter down. As I'm about to walk away I say,,, You know I didn't touch the counter,,, she's like,,,, ohhh yah you didn't, she shrugs her shoulders, rolls her eyes and says force of habit I guess.

    This madness isn't ending anytime soon.

    Why wear it at work? Just asking as being curious?

    Exactly. The supply chain is designed to run a "normal" harvest each year. We used more lumber last year and logging will take time to catch up with their process. There is no miracle method to instantaneously increase logging and production. Most US consumer lumber goes through a very limited supply chain process with just a few big players. Supply and demand pricing is a sucky deal when the two forces work against each other and we still want the product.

    Not sure as I will never spend another dime there. Card has been cut up and account paid off. Even if they removed the face diapers I will not ask for a new card nor step foot in their door.

    Several big chain stores are keeping their mask rules in place including the much bragged about Home Depot.

    Get over yourselves. You are more than just an ego and 3lb brain with a bundle scared thoughts about losing control

    The real issue isn't masks.....it's the fear mentality most are operating under these days. Good decisions can never be made out of fear and I'll deal with issues that are directly in front of me that will help myself and people in my direct circle.

    Fear of being forced to wear masks and not having control, fear of getting sick and losing control of your body, fear of losing your job for not enforcing rules and losing control of the fragile life you built. Just a bunch scared people out there thinking they can control everything.

    We attempt to exercise power or control over someone or something and at the same time cannot avoid giving that person the very same power or control over us. You guys are all in a giant circle jerk of some sort

    Called Burlington WI Menards said they STILL REQUIRE MASKS. I said time to change get with the no mask program. Response we don’t know when mask requirement will be lifted. I said you won’t see me again until you do. Obviously requiring masks is a Menards policy not the government, town, county or state. Screw you Menards masks are absurd.

    Sorry MP, I just walked out of Home Depot in Rhinelander WI, no masks required signs, and nobody said a word to me. I see you supplied another link to CNN, how cute.

    By the way, Walmart is dropping mask requirements for vaccinated.

    The Kwik Trip nearest to me must have taken the sign off the door within a hour of the announcement.

    Yup Kwik Trip removed all signs. Menards still had the big sign out front but it was mostly ignored.

    It's just so funny to me that you are all so spun up about wearing masks.

    It's not like your country is asking you to do mandatory military service or something.

    A week ago they said you didn't have to wear a mask outside...... really...who was.lol. A week later now you don't have to wear a mask inside. How anyone can believe a word that comes from CDC is beyond me. Unvaccinated people......yeah pretty sure they're not wearing mask anyways. And if your vaccinated why do you care if unvaccinated people don't wear a mask!!!!!!

    This one's for Skyler! Lol

    I don't think the masks work for crap and neither does the vaccine but it's something in a world of unknowns.

    But boycott business and be upset that someone wants you to wear a mask is weird.

    It's not like it's a big deal, plus I trick more women into giving me a shot this way.

    ...I might wear a mask for forever.

    Travel, and unknowing, eh? At first, the US only restricted Chinese "nationals" from traveling from China to the US. Others freely came.

    Pete, well.... we needed some painting supplies for up north and by the time we got out of shop only had 2 choices, Menards or Wally World. After being refused sale because we didnt have masks at menards did really not want to return but I despise wally world so we went to menards as we are heading up for over night after close today. there are no more masks required signs on entry ways and we walked in no masks, people all over no masks, wasn't challenged at all, got the stare from some folks wearing masks (but that's their choice, just as its mine) and had no problem at register. So I am assuming they are no longer enforcing it as there were many without them. p.s. I will reach out to you soon, have been insanely busy with crazy hours uuuuggghhh.

    Was at Home Depot, Rhinelander yesterday. I didn't put on my mask but had it with me. I'd say 80/20 had masks on plus all the workers. No signs. I finally asked one worker and she politely said they still want masks on but were not policing it. I put mine one. The day anyone requires you to show a vaccination card, I will refuse as I see that as back in the WWII era: "Ver are your papers?"

    Their checkout setup created challenges keeping people separated. Most retailers threw up plexiglass dividers. That wasn't a simple option with their checkout lane system.
    Big companies have to deal with potential liabilities or be ready to pay. It's a crappy deal, but it is reality.
    The early guidelines laid out a scenario that meant reconfiguring their checkouts or create a policy to lower liability risks. Neither method was without a cost.

    Just went to Menards store just north of Indy. No mask required. Signs are off the doors and sandwich board is gone. Sign that is on the door says they are following CDC guidelines so vaccinated no mask required, non vaccinated mask should be worn. No one at the door watching or checking. All the employees were still masked up though. That was the last hold out in my town. No place else required it.

    Mills Fleet Farm in Oconomowoc, Mask signs gone, all employees no longer wearing masks. Saw customers still wearing masks, I say if you want to wear a mask do it, it's just not for me.

    So good to see.......

    Did our shopping circuit in Burlington WI today including Menards and I was surprised at how many shoppers are still wearing masks. I’m done with masks hope to never wear one again but those that choose to wear masks ok with me.

    I realize a lot of the masking was fear of litigation by the larger corps. Now that the CDC has relaxed the mandates many outlets have done the same. Locally though, our McDonalds franchises still require masks and don't allow for in-store dining. Big sign on the door, Don't Ask, No Mask, No Debate. The "No Debate" thing rubbed me the wrong way and I haven't eaten at Mickey D's since before the big pandemic...and I'm probably healthier for it too.

    That sign is not acceptable. However individual franchisees can say and put on their doors whatever they want to a point.

    The dining rooms are currently being re-opened now as many in my area are fully open with of course limited seating. They are NOT supposed to be policing the mask wearing at all and customers are no longer required to wear masks if vaccinated but they are also not going to be asked if they have been or not.

    No I haven’t worn a mask except Menards for 3-4 weeks now. Menards was the only store demanding masks when I started this thread. I was frustrated with Menards and stayed away then the CDC repealed the mask mandate and Menards finally got with the maskless program so I returned. This was probably my first time shopping after CDC repealed masks and I was very very surprised by how many shoppers chose to wear masks. Their choice but I had to wonder why the masks? Either a lot of unvaccinated people or people are scared of the unknown. Idk I wasn’t going to ask but seems pointless to me to wear a mask if vaccinated.

    They are brainwashed by the media believing face diapers will save them from getting the China virus.
