Best Menards Black Friday Deals From 2013
Whether it’s tools, toys or appliances you’re looking for, Midwestern home-improvement chain Menards has you covered. The chain offers a wide inventory of supplies for the entire home.
Last year, the retailer ran a 29-page Black Friday ad featuring dozens of bargains. Unlike other retailers that chose to kick off the shopping season as early as Thanksgiving evening, Menards stuck to tradition, opening its doors Friday. The sale began at 6 a.m. and lasted until noon Friday. In its Black Friday ad, the retailer explained exactly why it chose to leave Thanksgiving untouched by the shopping frenzy: “As a family-owned company, Menards believes that Thanksgiving is a time for togetherness, which should be celebrated with all those we hold dear.”
In the ad, the store featured deals on everything from tools, furniture and kitchenware to toys and even electronics.
For shoppers in need of new tools, Menards offered the Stanley 150-piece mechanics tool set for the impressively low price of $29.88. A 250-piece Tool Shop rotary tool kit sold for $14.99, and the Performax tower tool chest combo was priced at $189, equaling savings of $110.
For the home, Menards offered a range of appliances, furniture and even bedding, all for discount prices:
- Snap-on high-pressure washer: $49.99
- Simmons microfiber rocker recliner: $99
- Creston electric stove: $39.59
- Pittman queen double-height air bed: $24.99
The sale also included items for the kitchen, with a Cuisinart 10-piece nonstick cookware set selling for only $49, and each consumer’s choice of a coffeemaker, 4-quart slow cooker or two-slice toaster: $9.77.
Menards may not be the first place you think of when you go toy shopping, but the home-improvement retailer offered excellent deals on children’s toys last year, including Fisher-Price Power Wheels for $179, as well as a choice of tabletop and mini toss-and-score games for $7.87. Another cheap find was the Air Warriors Cougar foam dart gun from Buzz Bee Toys, which sold for $7. Furthermore, the V-Max R/C toy helicopter sold for $9.99, and even kids’ Big Wheel tricycles were marked down to $24.99.
Consumers gift shopping for an aspiring artist could grab the Cra-Z-Art 250-piece art set for only $9.99. The set came with dozens of oil pastels, markers, chalk, pencils and more.
The store even offered markdowns on electronics, including a 9-inch dual core tablet for $88. Apple fans could pick up a bedside audio system for iPod, iPad or iPhone at only $24.99.
Shoppers looking for other home-improvement stores should check out Home Depot, Lowe’s, Ace Hardware and True Value. For furniture, bedding and appliances, consider Sears and Target. For a full list of 2014 Black Friday ad scans, check out NerdWallet’s Black Friday ad leaks page.
