Only ordered small stuff from them to send to my Mother in law. No issues to date and shipping was fine if you want something specific.

I use Menard’s a lot but basically because it is closer (mile or so) than HD or Lowes. Not really much difference between it and the others to be honest. They have gotten much better on price as few years ago they would run 30 percent higher on average on like products. They have stopped carrying much of the same products and have become much more competitive on pricing.

Agree tool shop should be avoided but that goes for about every low priced generic house brand. They have a better selection of hardwoods but no one in their right mind would buy it on a routine basis based on cost. Both Menard’s here have a tendency to get a few nice pieces of maple in at times that can get me to buy some for small projects (birds eye and some very light tiger striped).

Most of ply we get is Tigerply (plenty of voids an splinters badly) and then Timber Products. Did find it interesting the last pine I picked up was stickered from New Zealand.
