Menards will price match any discount from Lowes and Home Depot except 10% military discount. They claim they will match the discount when it is advertised, but since their competitors offer it year round, they don't advertise it. Especially in a time of war it is nice to see that Menards does not support the troops and their families that sacrifice to protect our freedom, don't shop there.
I agree that it is petty to expect a discount and that it is the right of a retailer to choose whether or not to honor it. However, I feel that it is bad form to honor every discount except one for being in the military. I worked at Menards and turned veterans away when they presented an estimate with a military discount. If they came back with an estimate with the same discount but the discount was given for any reason other than military, we would honor it. I am not a member of the military, but I appreciate the sacrifices made by our troops, and I didn't like turning folks away because of corporate policy against the military. I don't intend to give the military a bad name and I am not being selfish, the discount does not apply to me. I am merely stating the facts as I have witnessed and explaining the reasons why I disagree. Thank you for your service.
