The local Menards in our area is pretty darned good. The local lumber yard is only a third as far away as the Menards so most of my lumber and lumber related supplies come from the local lumber yard, even if it's higher priced. The local yard loads me up and I'm on my way. No hassle, no guard shack. They know me well and I don't have to show an ID.
Menards does have the largest supply for my non-lumber needs by far and as a whole the quality is pretty good. There is no HD or Lowes in our area so I can't compare them. Jim
