Menards Black Friday 2013
The Menards Black Friday 2013 ad scan has surfaced! In their ad, Menards included a note addressing their customers and explaining why they intentionally refused to jump on the Grey Thursday bandwagon. Instead of interrupting their customers’ and workers’ Thanksgiving, the first leg of the sale will start at 6 a.m. on Friday morning and lasts 6 hours.
If you can’t make it to Menards in time to catch their doorbusters, you can certainly catch some other great deals during their 2-day Super Sale from Friday until Saturday.

Best Menards Black Friday Deals from 2012
Menards opened its doors in the predawn hour of 5am Black Friday last year. Unlike the retailers Target, Walmart, and Sears, the store didn’t compete with the Thanksgiving evening hours, letting shoppers visit Menards as the second or third stop.
The sales at Menards had three different categories, all varied by length: the 6-Hour Sale on Black Friday, the 2-Day sale (Friday-Saturday), and the 3-Day sale. The ad divided up the three so that the 6-hour was in green on pages 1-12, the 2-day sale was in red on pages 13-20, and the all-weekend sale covered the last pages, 21-28.
The eye-catching items were the following: the 32” $127 LED TV on the first page, the $4.99 memory foam slippers for both men and women, the $2.99 scarves, and the Women’s Button Boots for $7.99 a pair. All four of these items were in the 6-hour sale. One note about the TV: electronics were not a strongpoint of the store’s inventory. Some products like the TV or the $14.99 bluetooth speaker (in the 2-day sale) cropped up, but Menards wouldn’t the first place buyers go for big-ticket electronics.
Combining inventory of department stores and home improvement retailers like Home Depot, Menards held products for everyone, even pets and babies. The Stuffing Free Dog Toys at $1.49 and the $4.98 24” Huge Knotted Rawhide Bone were appealing goods for man’s best friend. For babies in need of towering stuffed animals, Jumbo Plush Stuffed Animals were on sale for $7.44, and for babies on the move, My Doll Strollers had the cheap price of $4.99.
Moving onto the 2-day sale, we still found good deals. The Men’s and Women’s Performance Fleece Pullover went for $7.99, a price 60% off the original. For any buyers looking for the cheapest products, a 26” Disc Sled and Jumbo Coloring & Activity Books were both under a dollar. One item not found in Home Depot’s 2012 ad was the electric wall fireplaces, with a savings of $70-80 for the ones on sale at Menards.
Finally, the all-weekend sale featured laminate flooring for 66¢ per square foot and carpeting for 49¢ per square foot. For buyers with tile floors, tiles went on sale for less than 60¢ each. Most of the products in the three-day sale were home furnishings, meaning that the winter apparel discounts stayed opened in just the first two days. As expected, the overall store selection was greatest for the 6-hour sale and decreased for each longer sale duration.
