What type of lamp are they replacing f32t8?

T12/ t17 there's a reason they made heavy magnetic ballasts

Yep.

I really hope my local Menards doesn't go LED anytime soon. It has hundreds of magnetic slimlines with Sylvania lamps and 400w metal halide GE M 1000's in the parking lot. The owners don't seem to have any problem with the current lighting (very well maintained) so hopefully it stays that way. It looks like they are using LED tubes here. Look how cold and dreary the LED lit area looks compared to the remaining fluorescent lit area.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

It looks like the never ending story with end of the world coming Ive seen warehouse buildings with 30 foot plus high ceilings lit with f96t12HO and looked even better than the f32t8s

There's basically three different types of Menards stores:

The older ones, which are red brick, one story with a small loft area for lighting. These used metal halide high bays or fluorescent strips

Middle aged one story with no loft, wood timbers at the entrance- used metal halide high bay lighting, the Burnsville store has been converted to LED high bay.

New stores are two stories with fluorescent high bay fixtures and induction lights in the center "atrium". Originally they did this due to space constraints at some existing sites, but customers liked them so they're building them this way even when there is more room. Richfield is one of these, they've left the induction lights alone but are installing LED tubes in the fluorescent fixtures.

One of my Menards changed to LEDs, replacing various halides and induction fixtures, and a few of these weird oddball 6x26w pl high bays.
