Menards is a home improvement store chain that competes with other chains like Lowe's and Home Depot. John Menard Junior, the man behind the company, previously worked in the construction industry. He constructed buildings while in college and paid his tuition through his work. After graduation, he had a difficult time keeping up with the demands of his customers and hired crews to do some of the work for him. Menard later built his own office and a small store. That store became the first Menards.
Based out of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Menards is one of the top home improvement stores in the United States. To keep up with its production, the company built two distribution centers in Wisconsin. It later added distribution centers in Iowa and Ohio. These centers allow the company to make its own products, which is can sell for less than name brands in its stores. Menards stores typically sell appliances, windows and doors, paints, electrical items and similar products. Some stores even sell groceries.
The home improvement store also helps customers do projects in their own homes. Many of the stores offer workshops that customers can attend on the weekends or on weeknights. These classes can show you how to landscape your yard, select the right plants for your garden or lay down flooring in your home. You'll also find helpful videos posted on the chain's YouTube channel. One of those videos is Install Wall Tile - How To - Menards. It gives you all the basic knowledge that you need to install new tile in your bathroom or kitchen. You can watch the video before installing the tile or follow along with the video to ensure you do everything correctly.
The official Menards website includes a Services section that tells you more about the services available both online and in stores. Many of these stores rent trucks and other equipment for your projects. You can rent a pick-up truck for the day to move or pick up some supplies from the store for less than you might anticipate. The site has its own Rebate Center too. You can enter all the rebate numbers that you have on tickets, click a button and get a PDF file that includes all that information in one convenient spot.
