Well, wife and I decided to drive over and try the new Menard's last nite around 8:00 PM. Figured it wouldn't be as crowded as it's been on weekends. We were right. Got a nice close parking spot. Grabbed a cart and had a list of about a dozen things to get. Found that we spent a lot of time waiting for people to move their carts to get by them in the store which seemed to be laid out weird. Mishmash of horizontal and vertical aisles made it difficult to get around. Can't imagine what it's like when it's jam packed.

First thing on the list were metal wall plates. Needed a variety, duplex, single gang, blank cover. They only had a couple of duplex and they were $3+. Whoa. (Nice blister pack, though. Package was worth more than the plate). Next item was bi-fold door L-brackets for the bottom of the door. Needed 4, they had 2 and they were $3+. This went on and on. Only thing we got was a fluorescent fixture for the kitchen.

Drove over to Lowes. Plenty of metal wall plates, no blister packs. $1 apiece. Plenty of L-brackets for doors, $2+. Did a price check on the fluorescent fixture and prices were a couple of bucks apart for an item over $100.

So based on this sampling, I won't be going back to Menards anytime soon. When the prices are triple for typical items at a hardware store and the selection is not geared toward that end (right next to the hardware aisle was the grocery section), there's something wrong.
