About Menard, Inc.

Menard is a major US home improvement chain, only lagging behind The Home Depot and Lowe's, with a stronghold in the Midwest. The company runs more than 300 Menards stores in roughly 15 states, including Illinois and Michigan. Stores sell floor coverings, hardware, millwork, paint, and tools. Many also stock appliances, pet products, lawn and garden supplies, and even groceries. Menard also sells goods online, including click-and-collect services. Unlike competitors, all the company's stores have full-service lumberyards. Menard is owned by president and CEO John Menard.

Strategy

Menard is growing its store footprint via organic methods, investing cash generated by its operations into buying land and building stores. Most of its newly built stores are megastore format that, stock groceries, pet food, appliances, and other categories outside its core home improvement range. These ancillary products pull in more customers and build loyalty.

Company Background

In addition to billionaire John Menard, who founded the company in 1960, other family members are engaged in the chain's everyday operations. John Menard also owns Team Menard, an Indy car-racing team.
