I didn't go to menards last year because It looked like more candles and stuff like. They have been really good in the past. I hope they will have some great deals this year.

The deals last year at Menards were not as good as they have been in the past but I always find something there and then I am the one standing in line there with a list for everyone. Funny how I never need anything from Staples but they guys always want something from Menards. :) Oh well, I love BF and I am hoping it isn't as cold here this year as it was last year!!!

The lines are crazy though aren't they? I am thinking one of us should get in line while the other two get the items needed. Maybe go ahead and scope out where they are set up as last year we had to have clerks go find things for us and the lines never seemed to move. Carts were scarce and items were too big to carry around so you have to be determined to get the job done! lol

I live in Indiana and our Menards here was very organized that morning. They had lots of stuff i needed, and the employees couldn't have been more helpful. Hope it goes the same this year, just not as cold. it was a bitter:gdmornincoffee: morning.

Where are you located in North Dakota. Last year wasn't too bad, still cold. In 2004 it was 30 below, I had to jump up and down just to keep my heart beating. This year I am really prepared, have a hat that covers my ears and face.

I will not step foot in this store this year! I went there last year. OMG it was worse then Walmart! The parking lot was full. There was one car that drover over the curb & just parked cause there was no parking spaces! I get into the store & thought what the heck am I doing in here. The lines were at leat to the middle part of the store if not longer & people had oodles of stuff. I said to heck with it & walked back out. LOL I just couldnt get over how nuts that store was.

I like Menards. They have some great doorbusters. The last 2 years my local Menards had longer checkout lines than any other store I was at including Best Buy.

There was only 2 things I wanted out of there sale ad last year. I wont bother this year cause I would have to get there early & that would take time away from me going to the other stores. I will pass. LOL

It depends on what they have. If they have some more of the blankets for $2.98 or the Lava lamps for $3.99 or the lamps for $4.99 I might go. I didn't go last year because nothing really jumped out at me from the ads.

We were in Bismarck shopping but mind you, I had just gotten back from my honeymoon in Maui 5 days before Black Friday. My blood thinned while I was there so it was really hard to come back to ND at the end of November at 9 days of 85* weather. I know it has been much colder here but I am just not ready for winter yet and for some reason it always gets colder 2 days or so before Black Friday.

Menards is always the first store I hit. The lines are horrible both in and out of the store. But the employees are so friendly and helpful! Last year our store had balloons where the door buster items were so you could find it easier. Last year I lucked out and was in line at 5:30 and out of the store by 6:15! I went all the way to the end cashiers and she had noone!

I went last year, and it was crazy. There was no where to park, and there were no carts. People were grabbing rolling trashcans to carry all of their stuff. The sale stuff was scattered throughout the store, and it was hard to find anything. They DID have a good supply of all of the sale items, I went later in the morning and I still got what I wanted. The lines were clear to the end of the store. I will have to say, however, that the attitute inside Menards was a LOT better than that is Wal Mart...the customers weren't pushy and most were smiling.

That's too funny! I had the exact same experience last year.

In my Menards, every cash register was open, and every line was all the to back of the store. Everyone was nice and friendly, though. I'd do it again for their doorbusters.

We didn't even bother with Mendard's last year. They had some good prices, but early in the morning there were cars parked all over the place in th ditch along side the road, in the grass outside the parking lot. Then later when it LOOKED less hectic outside we walked in the door saw the lines snaking halfway thru the store and turned back around. We did have a great time last year. It was DH's first Black Friday. We got the laptop from Wal-Mart!!! He was really charged up about that.

Looking very forward to the Menards ad!!! Hopefully they'll have a bench grinder on sale for my husband. Ace Hardware has one but the Minot's Ace Hardware is far away from all the other stores so it would be an inconvenience to shop there. Last year standing in line for Menards they were handing out the sales flyers. That helped a lot of people and shows great customer service. Those living in ND, which store are you starting out at?

Oh My goodness wasn't it just. I do too, those were great. I went later to Menard's last year because I had other places, but when I got there they still had stuff.

I will probably be going to Walmart first, then maybe Menard's, it really depends. I will then head to the mall.
HURRY UP MENARD's!!!!

My parents always go. So I send my list of stuff w/them. In case, I can't make it to the store in time. But we always try.
