SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS/WRSP) — A new policy at Menards is preventing children from entering the stores for the time being.
Children under 16 years of age will temporarily not be allowed into any Menards stores.
The store also won't be allowing pets. Service animals, however, will be allowed.
According to the manager of the Springfield Menards location, the new policy began Wednesday, April 1.
"We are doing this in all our stores as we are under intense pressure to lower the number of people that are in any one store at any one time to only those that absolutely need to be there. Sadly, although "going to Menards" used to be a fun family outing, the virus means that simply can no longer happen. Let's hope we can all survive this and get back to normal soon," wrote a spokesperson for Menards.
