Mid-western hardware store chain. I've heard they are a slight step below a Lowe's or Home Depot.

Kind of ugly looking stores.

Does anyone else shop at Menard's? I do. It's the best home improvement stores. While selling items such as lumber, cabinets, applicanes, blinds shades, plumbing, electrial and other stuff it doesn't appear to be a warehouse store.
The employees are always friendly and the stores are always and you can't beat the prices!
The only down fall for this store is that the store can be hard to navigate and lacks aisle markers and store maps. Otherwise It's a perfect store since I have stopped buying from Home Depot (when they open a new store they send a black wreath, black flowers, and a pet casket to competing stores in the city.

I think quite the opposite... Menard's has re-designed the store fronts and actually good looking.

Menard's is bigger than the average Home Depot or Lowe's... It contains lumber, applainces, flooring, doors/windows, magazines, pool chemicals, lawn/garden, pet supplies and a limited selection of food and health and beauty items.

Menard's has a different set-up than HomeDepot or Lowe's. Instead of displaying merchandise on pallet jacks like HD and Lowe's do, they display all merchandise (or samples) on standard gondola shelving, the large merchandise is then put on pallet jacks in the store's perimeter. This gives Menard's a nice feel instead of the warehouse-y feeling of other competitors. This also elimates forklifts driving around you when you try to shop!

Menard's has better help and the staff is trained on all the merchandise in their department, and some even have handymen on site to provide additional assistance. Unlike Home Depot, Menard's does not have classes or "workshops."

Compared to HomeDepot, Menard's has better pricing.

If a Menard's thread hasn't seen activity in six years, then it's on a forum where you won't see much Midwesterners on it.

Anyways, they are planning on opening their third Detroit-area store in 2017. This location is on the site of the former Gibraltar Trade Center in Taylor, Michigan, which closed in November.

Menards is also doing well in their home state of Wisconsin.

Other Wisconsin-based retailers doing well in the state of Wisconsin:
Shopko Discount Stores
Kohl's Department Stores
Mills' Fleet Farm
Blaine's Farm & Fleet
Pick 'n Save/Copps Food Center (divisions of Roundy's and Kroger)
Woodman's Markets
Sendik's Food Markets
