Contact 2: Menards holding Black Friday sales event for 10 straight days

Contact 2

ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – In a year that’s thrown us plenty of curveballs, Menards says it wants to make things simple and safe for shoppers this holiday season.

“We have everything right out in the main aisle to be able to provide a good flow of traffic through the store and out through the registers, so everyone can get what they need and still not be involved in a crowd,” said Greg Townsend, general manager at the Menards Manchester store.

New for 2020, Townsend says Menards will hold a Black Friday Every Day sale. It runs 10 days from Nov. 27 to Dec. 6.

“Menards has always been the place to be on Black Friday,” he said. “We’re calling audibles this year but should still be the place to be to get everything you need as well as stay safe.”

Inside Menards, you’ll find what it calls an enchanted forest full of decorated trees, colorful lights, displays, and holiday décor.

Stores also serve as toy drive donation sites during the holiday season. You can find drop boxes near store exit doors to collect new and unwrapped presents from now through the end of November. When it comes to safety, Townsend says Menards is doing all it can to protect its customers and staff.

“We clean every single knob, desk, computer, restroom, carts throughout the day. We follow CDC protocol and, of course, require masks.” Townsend said.

Contact 2 has resolved consumer complaints totaling millions of dollars over the years. Those cases have not only brought peace of mind to the consumers who asked Contact 2 for help, but also shed light on allegations of deception and wrongdoing levied against businesses, contractors and government agencies.

Our team focuses on gathering the facts about what happened. The process involves seeking out both sides of the story. It’s not always what consumers want to hear, but we have an obligation to be fair to the entity accused of causing the problem. Working to clearly understand the details is an important part of the job. Sometimes these cases can be resolved quickly. Other times, Contact 2 will spend weeks or months getting to the bottom of the problem. We appreciate the patience of those who’ve asked us to help them.

While dealing with the complaints of individual consumers is a big part of the job for Contact 2, we’re also dedicated to informing consumers of the latest scams, rip-offs and fraud schemes. Technology has made it easier than ever for criminals to target consumers.
