I hope it has a small foot print. as you can see, there's not much real estate left in downtown Menardsville

Bob, you just might have to evict somebody! LOL

Mark, when is the big announcement? Early next week?

Good question.

We have a pretty good idea when they will arrive but I don't want to put my foot in my mouth and give a release date yet. I would suspect sometime in the next two weeks would be a safe guess.

Good question. It depends on if they pass the quality test too.

Why would they even be shipped if quality was an issue?  Sorta' seems backasswards to me.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to send someone from Menards to do quality inspection in China, in case it fails the expense and time of shipping failed goods back is spared?

Maybe not cheaper.....faster? Yes.  I work with a company that manufactures hobby products in China. As many companies that have products made in China there are just as many QC agreements.  NOT knowing what Menard's agreement is....let's look at what is typical.  A QC sample is sent, approved by owner. Product is produced and shipped. Item fails stateside QC and owner returns. All this cost is often charged to the manufacture. (add to that shipping USA to China is a small fraction of cost China to USA)  It boils down to the terms of manufacture....but my guess is Maenard's folks are smart enough to have a deal beneficial to them. 

Side note....I passed on working for a different hobby company once because it required 3-4 trips to China a year. NOT my idea. and many others, of a good time.
