My "Daddy Disneyland" Menards just made my CRAP List.

Doesn't it Menardsmake you mad when a store has a BIG sale and then they don't have the product on hand? 

Take that a step further, you are really excited about an item in the sale so you get up early (not talking Black Friday early here) and you are there with-in an hour of when the store opens and then they "just sold out" of the item.

Crap airplane makerWith the scare or the coronavirus I was eager to score a package (3 pieces) of respirators just in case this thing makes it's way to Minot ND.

The one and only person in front of me in line was from Boeing. He had been given orders from Boeing to purchase all Menards had in stock so Boeing could send them to their employees in Japan. He purchased all 30 cases of them... CASES! I asked him if I could have one package (3 masks) and it was a no go.

I don't know who I'm madder at. Why would Menards allow it's stores to sell out an advertised sale product as soon as their doors opened? Besides myself how many other loyal customers are going to be mad as hell at Menards?

I can not do anything about Boeings actions other then saying thanks alot for stealing this protection for our community and sending it over seas BUT I can boycott Menards and stop spending the few hundred dollars a month I currently spend there (and have for 20+ years).

I guess for me, Daddy Disneyland just moved to Home Depot a block South of Menards. Hope to see you there!

I don't think it was a store issue, I think it was a buyer issue.  I would have given you one.

Why didn't that buyer let you have a case. What a douche!

Thanks Don Baker . I do think the store should have had a limit. I just heard an add for the product again this evening.

I Thought so to Candice A. Donofrio but just to clarify, I only wanted one package out of the 30 cases.

Morning Bob.

Interesting dilema, on one hand I don't see why Menard's would sell all of them to just one person, but I can see why they did.  On the other hand the employee from Boeing had been given orders, that he/she followed.

Well, the good news is that the liklihood of the virus spreading to Minot is not that high... and I'm told those masks are not very useful and really only useful to wear if you are the one who's sick. Not sure I'd be so mad at the store as at the Boeing guy... but then he was just following orders and doing his job.

Agreed James Dray . I wonder if he was the 1st one they asked or if some others said "I'm not going to do that!".

I am hoping they have it under control before it hits here Nina Hollander BUT I have no doubt it will eventually get here. Hopefully a cure or something to keep it from being life threatening will get here first. With the Air Force base here and people coming and going from all over the world to and from the base I would not doubt we see this virus in Minot earlier then most communities.

Hi Bob,  I would be mad also.  It should be a store policy to only sell a limited number to any one individual especially when it's on sale.  I think it will be everywhere before too long.  Go to the health food store and buy some things that will improve your immune system and try to stay away from large crowds is my best advice.  :)

AND it was the first hour of a 3 day sale Ricki Eichler McCallum . Thanks for the suggestions. I have a week immune system so these things scare me... although I always shake as many hands as I can a day (thank goodness for hand sanitizer).
