Menards was founded in 1962 by John Menard, Jr in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
In 1969, Menard began to add manufacturing capabilities to the site, including lumber and doors. A distribution center was also added.
In 1994, the post frame building division of the company was sold.
In 1998, a second distribution center was opened in Plano, IL. This was followed by 2 more distribution centers in 2007 in Holiday City, OH and Shelby, IA.
In 2013, Menards was ranked as the 43rd largest private company by Forbes Magazine. It is the third largest home improvement store, trailing behind Home Depot and Lowe’s.
The company has been involved in numerous disputes concerning violation of environmental regulations. One that occurred in 2011 found that the company was illegally dumping hazardous waste. Menards paid a fine of $30,000.
Menards also settled complaints filed with the National Labor and Safety Board, which found that the company was violating the rights of workers in regards to pay and firing practices. The company agreed to make changes, but this paves the way for a nationwide, class action lawsuit from employees.
Today, Menards has over 300 stores in 14 US states. The Menards corporate office is still located in Eau Claire, WI.
