Menards adjusts hours, prohibits children and pets from entering stores in midst of COVID-19

Home improvement chain Menards is adjusting its store hours and is now preventing those under the age of 16 as well as pets from entering its stores in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to a notice on its website, Menards stated its updated hours are now Monday-Saturday 6 a.m.-8 p.m. and Sunday 8 a.m.-7 p.m.

Additionally, the notice stated those under the age of 16 will not be allowed to enter the store, nor will pets. Service dogs are allowed.

Menards stated those who look to be under the age of 16 will be asked to show identification.

"Thank you for keeping us all safe!" the notice concluded.

The move follows a similar one made by Costco in limiting the number of shoppers allowed in its stores to two people per membership card.
