Menards not allowing children, pets in stores due to COVID-19 pandemic


Home improvement chain Menards announced Thursday that children are no longer allowed in its stores.

In a statement posted to its website, Menards wrote that it is no longer allowing children under the age of 16 or pets into its stores due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Service dogs are an exception, officials said.

“If you look under the age of 16 years old, you will be asked to show your identification (driver’s license),” a post reads.

The store has announced adjusted hours and will now be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays.
