EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - Menards’ Black Friday sales will be a little different in 2020.

Normally, the store holds its major sales the day following Thanksgiving. This year, the store is giving shoppers 10 days following Thanksgiving to take advantage of its annual sales.

“We want to make sure that we have a safe shopping experience for everybody and so we’ve changed things up and been able to have a 10-day event for everybody’s holiday shopping season,” said Mike Anderson, Eau Claire East Menards General Manager.

Eleva resident Arne Olson said he doesn’t usually go Black Friday shopping because he tries to avoid the annual crowds. While he doesn’t plan to go this year, he is interested in taking advantage of Menards deals later in the week.

“You won’t get nearly as many people all in one say so you’d have more time to decide when to go,” Olson said.

Anderson said despite the large crowds this year it’s still nice to see the holidays usher in some sense of normalcy in this abnormal year.

“It’s great to see some normal things out there that are tradition for all of our team members and the people that shop at Menards. Certainly Christmas is one of those things,” he said.

Anderson also said some of the stores most popular holiday gifts include toys, tools, appliances and decorations.

Menards will not change its hours on Black Friday or the following nine days.

The store requires all shoppers to wear a mask.
