Menards is a chain of home improvement stores headquartered in Michael J. Nelson's home state of Wisconsin.
The company has stores in several states, including Minnesota. Menards has several locations in the Twin Cities area, including one in Eden Prairie where MST3K was produced.
In advertisements the company's catch phrase is "Save Big Money at Menards." Television advertisements during MST3K's initial run featured a white haired older gentleman named Ray Szmanda (1926-2018), and the company still uses his likeness in print ads.
