Heads up if you need something from Lowes or Home Depot -- the two hardware store chains are making important changes in order to keep people safe among Covid-19 concerns.
Lowes will now close at 7 p.m. every day. Lowes is also implementing social distancing protocols by adding dedicated social distancing ambassadors who will be responsible for monitoring customer flow in our garden centers and front-end areas and enforce customer limits to allow proper social distancing.
Home Depot stores will now close at 6 p.m. and limit how many people can be in the store. The adjust hours will help employees sanitize the store and restock items appropriately.
The Home Depot is promoting social and physical distancing in our stores and distribution centers. Stores are limiting the number of customers inside at any given time.
The store is also eliminating major spring promotions to avoid driving high levels of traffic to stores. In addition to training our associates on social distancing, the store has placed distancing markers at counters, posted signage throughout the stores and are making overhead announcements on our store PA systems asking customers to maintain safe distances.
