Menards is a privately-held company headquartered in Wisconsin, where John Menard, Jr. opened his first lumber store in the early 1960s. The company now has dozens of stores in a dozen states in the Upper Midwest. The chain helped create somewhat of a popular culture icon with a spokesman who became known simply as "the Menards guy." It also has a well-known jingle, "Save big money at Menards."
An anthology covers the Animals' psychedelic years, plus Gordon Lightfoot's first new studio album since 2004.
