Menard"s is my favorite store of all. I always find that if I can get it there it will be the ceapest.
They do not have everything that some of the other folks do but they serve my needs about 90% of the time.
The guys at Lowes are obviously paid by the hour and they don"t care if you get what you need.
Home Depot is way over-staffed with incompentents and that tells me I am paying too much unless it"s on clearance.
