Menards Christmas Molds


Recommended Posts

I stopped at 3 Menards today to see if they had their molds out. Two of them had some molds out and the third had shelf tags for the molds, but no molds. This is a smaller store (Richfield MN) so they don't always carry everything Menards has that particular year, but this is what they had:

Snoopy 59.99

Santa in Sleigh 79.99

Extra Deer for sleigh 31.99

40" Snowman 39.99

34" Snowman 29.99

Santa with Stocking 39.99

Dancing Santa 39.99

36" Santa Face (didn't have this last year) 49.99

Red Lamp Post (didn't have this last year) 15.99

Noel Candle 14.99

Penguin (both colors) 21.99

35" White Teddy Bear (didn't have this last year) 34.99

Soldier 14.99

Drummer Boy (didn't have this last year) 29.99

Stable 79.99

Painted Holy Family 54.99

Marble Holy Family 54.99

Wisemen set 79.99

Cow 15.99

Donkey 15.99

Shepherd 39.99

Sheep 11.99

Camel 29.99

I didn't see shelf tags for choir people, angels, Mr & Mrs Claus, 48" Santa or Snowman. Maybe they are still coming.

The store closest to me (West St Paul) has leftovers of the 48" pieces. Finding leftovers may be the only way to get them this year.

We now have a Menards here in Cincinnati so I will have to go check them out. My one dream is to find a Santa Train but noone ever seems to sell it. The fact that there were left over pieces of the 48" Santa and Snowman might be the reason they don't have them this year. It's a shame they were a poor seller. Plus, they never were in the General Foam catalog (that I'm aware of).... maybe they didn't produce them this year. Glad to know that those molds do still exist.

Everything listed here by Bill is all Menards is carrying this year, which is still a lot. They will not have the 48'' Santa or snowman, or Mr. & Mrs. Claus.

Bill are those pictures from the Eden Prairie store?

Tim, these photos are from Cottage Grove. I was in the Eden Prairie store on Wednesday and they were just starting to put the molds out. I'll probably go there during lunch and see if they're done. I may even try taking a few photos just to see if I can get away with it :)

I think part of the problem locally is that we had a lot of bad weather early in the season. If you didn't have your display out before Thanksgiving you may not have wanted to put one out, and therefore not wanted any new molds (these are "normal" decorators I'm talking about...people on this board would have bought the molds in September). I remember scrambling the day before Thanksgiving to get things out before the sleet and snow rolled in. I didn't get everything out I wanted to but after the sleet and snow came I didn't feel like putting more out. I heard on the radio a couple days ago we can expect the same kind of winter this year.

Last year at Menards 50% off sale, the only item I couldn't purchase at half off were the penguins. Everything else was still available (although not all at the same store, you would have had to hit a few to find everything except the penguins).

Hopefully the photo-Nazi's won't nab you like they did me! I worked from home yesterday so I'll have to check it out Monday at the soonest. That Snoopy mold is tempting - I didn't like it at first but it's growing on me.

I went on Friday but didn't take photos. I've taken pics in this store before without any problems. The manager must have been busy yelling at others.

The molds are all out but they put them high on shelves out of reach of anyone without a ladder. I imagine once they get all the furniture moved out they'll bring them down.

Why Why don't they build a Menards up here!!! It's not fair Curse you Massachusetts real estate $$$$

I read an article awhile back about how John Menard is getting up there in age -- near 70, I believe, and nobody in his family is really poised to take over. The speculation was that they'd probably sell the company, and perhaps whoever buys it would take it nationwide. They made a big deal about how Menards has always expanded slowly and carefully. The example they gave was how Home Depot announced (years ago) they were coming to the Chicago market - Menards considered that "their territory" and was able to beat them with a number of stores opened before HD opened any stores. But otherwise they're pretty content to remain in the Midwest, although it seems they expand a little outward each year. Around here they're slowly upgrading all their aging stores to compete with HD and Lowes. HD entered our market maybe 15 years ago, and Lowes just over 5... Menards has been here since the early 80's, I'm told.

When I called and asked if Menards would ever expand to Florida, I was told they just expanded into Kentucky and it would be awhile as they had to cover all states in between.

If anyone was looking into getting any molds from Menards they better make it quick. The Menards near me has already sold thru half of the molds they got in. There is only one Snoopy left and the Nativity sets....GONE! The only thing left is one box of the wise dudes, a week ago there were several of each item.....not so much now.
