Lowes Black Friday VS Home Depot Black Friday. And if you have a Menards in your area, check them out too!
Black Friday certainly has changed in the past few years.
But like last year, expect the second holiday season of the coronavirus pandemic to be different from years past.
With the supply chain issues and store inventory shortages caused by the pandemic, experts recommend that everyone start shopping for holiday gifts now ahead of Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
We know you are excited too, and your probably wondering when the first ads will come out. The big players in home improvement are gearing up for the biggest sales weekend of the year. Lets compare Lowes, Home Depot and Menards Black Friday sales.
These three retailers combine for almost 60% of all appliance sales and 50% of all tool sales in the United States. Home Depot, Lowe’s and Menards will have a number of home decor, lawn and garden, power equipment, appliances and tools offered at unbeatable prices.
The Deals Will Look Different Again
Last year, many retailers didn’ have in-store-only doorbusters but heavily promoted online specials. Lowes will do the same this year.
Here’s my can’t miss deals:
- 2 for $3 Poinsettias
- 2 for $20 Fresh Cut Wreaths
- Ring Video Doorbell $41.99
- Blink 2 Camera Outdoor System $99.99
- LG Stainless Steel Dishwasher $629.00
Lowes will not be doing any in-store doorbuster deals, but will have offers running all week and will be having Black Friday after Thanksgiving offers the entire weekend. Lowe’s will also offer “Cyber Steals” during November, which are daily one-day only online offers.
As always, shop around. Those Husky tools? Only at Home Depot. But you can get Craftsman tools at Lowes now!If you or someone on your holiday gift list wants an appliance or power tool, some big savings are in store for you. Going by last year’s sales, power drills, generators, garden tractors, snow blowers, refrigerators, dishwashers, ovens, and washers and dryers will be reduced for Black Friday weekend.
Here are some of the expected deals this year. Some may only be Black Friday, but others will extend through the entire weekend. Check each retailers website for updates.
Last year, Lowes, Home Depot and Menards offered four separate sale ads, so it’s possible we’ll find more deals as we get closer to the holiday. But it’s clear that you really need to compare the Black Friday “special” prices being offered by retailers both to the current selling price at that store and to the advertised prices.

Menards Black Friday Deals
Menards Black Friday sale is still in the works. They don’t promote their sales as much as Lowes and Home Depot and many sale items are by region.
The thing I like about Menards is that they will have items you will never see at other home improvement retailers. Like clothing, candy, books and even mattresses and pillows! You will still find greenery like wreaths and garland. And of course they will have artificial and real trees along with ornaments. Don’t forget to take a looks at the Christmas village displays and train sets!
Menards is the ideal place to pick up gifts for friends and family that is something different. And also grab some traditional home improvement items for your home for the holidays.
The Good News On Black Friday
The good news is that there’s no need to set your alarm clock for 3:30 a.m. and wait until the doors open at 5 a.m. While the very best deals won’t start online until midnight at most stores, you will be able to get into many retailers early on Friday.
Find out how you can score the best deals this year and make the most of the longer store hours. The stores earlier opening times also underscore just how nervous retailers are about sales after last year’s record Black Friday turnout. The National Retail Federation projected that holiday spending will only increase 4.1 percent this year, less than last year’s 5.6 percent rise.
First, familiarize yourself with the stores’ policies and have the items you want to purchase in mind when you arrive.
If there is only a small discount on the item you want, decide whether dealing with the winding lines and the in-store stampedes are worth the minor savings.
The early bird still gets the special treatment, as some stores, still reward early risers with items in limited quantities at great prices.
You can still save big on everything from tools to kitchen faucets and lighting to snowblowers and smart home products. New deals from all retailers will be showing up every week from now through December, so be sure to re-visit this page as we continue to update the deals and see the best Lowe’s Black Friday 2021 deals that are available to shop now.
