Ah-ha they're probably seeing what other retailors are putting out for sales and want to top it. Smart Idea....certainly hope so cuz I'm not impressed with a lot of these ads. But will shop just for the fun of it. We're sleeping in a suburban starting at 11pm to jump in line at Sears in Bismarck for the heck of it. Hope it wont be too cold....hoping for snow too that day.

I will be shopping in Minot, but I don't know, I hope Menard's ad is worth while, cuz these ads so far are not very appealing. I hope for snow on Thanksgiving, but the way the weather was last year, I think we had our winter. MENARD's WHERE ARE YOU!!!!!!!!

They have a big stock of those twin size inflatable air mattresses with a sleepign bag type cover in boy and girl patterns so I bet this is one of the BF items. Didn't have time to look for anything else.

Most of the items Menards had last year ended up being in their ads later on in December too. Besides, I wasnt about to wait in line for 4 hours to buy $10 worth of merchandise.

Last year in Fort Dodge they where in the parking lot, the grassed area between the lot and street, and across the street in a competitors parking lot. Plus while we were in line out in the street waiting to park people were getting out of cars in front of us tired of waiting. By the time we got inside there were no carts so I used a wheeled hamper and no I didn`t buy it! lol . We stood in line for at least 45 minutes to check out!

There will be a black friday ad. They are doin a heck of a job hiding it. In Chicago and in Milwaukee they have a commercial playing where a news reporter is about to read the bf sales and then he gets trampled by a group of people. It made me angry, I was foolish enough to sit on the edge of my seat thinking they were going to give away a couple of items. Then once he gets trampled on the commercial is over. Someone leak this before Thursday please! This way Ill know if I have to go Menards first or Best Buy or Circuit City! Its obvious Best Buy and Circuit City I could go to first, but if Menards has unbelievable prices it might sway me to go to meanrds to get cheap tools, and a pizza oven for myself this year! DON

If you have the BF ad please tell us what they are having. If you can scan the ad & send it to Brad that would be great. :)

Try what I did.. copy and paste it to your browsers address bar. Give it time cuz, the link comes up on adobe acrobat reader. May take a few to load.

RU Kidding? There's a million things in it. PM me your e-mail address and I'll send it to you. Maybe that'll work. It is a pdf file so you need Adobe Reader.
