Home Depot (Ontario) reopening May 9th

In accordance with recent provincial government measures, Ontario stores will be closed to customers as of Sunday, April 5. Curbside Pick-Up remains available for same-day emergency needs. Quebec stores will be closed every Sunday in April. Stores in all other provinces will remain open with adjusted hours.

Just got back from Lowes to pick up some items for a project in case my job gets shut down, spoke to an employee and they will closed as well. Pick up only and obviously no returns.

I think they extended the return period from 90 days to now 180 days at Lowe's.

Quite content with Home Depot & Lowe’s Group
Going to just curbside pick up
Actually prefer it / am searching it out these Coronavirus Days

Should work extremely well at Lowe’s & Rona
As I have used both stores in the past
To order from online with instore pick up

Great way to shop ... especially if you hear about something on sale thru RFD
And want to nail it down
Was how I got the excellent deal on my Weber BBQ a few summers ago

How does curbside pickup work? There is an area you drive next to and someone comes out to your car? Or do you walk to an area outside?

Haven’t done it at Cdn Tire
But I think most stores utilizing it are going to model it after the No Contact Grocery Store example

You order online
You pay online
You drive up
Open your trunk
Phone a number
And they bring the order to your car
And put it in your trunk ... and walk away

You close the trunk
& leave

It’s awesome

And could mean that more stores could actually stay open / re open sooner

Good move. Too many people have been using the time off from work to do home renos with many non-essential trips to the big box stores.

Human nature is to keep busy / do stuff
Not to sit around watching weeks of tv / play video games

Staying active is proven to be good for one’s physical & mental well-being
Especially in stressful times

I’d rather see folks hitting these stores that have curbside NO CONTACT Pickup
And get on with painting their houses say...

Than go into crowded stores
Or hanging out with people in the park etc

May as well be home doing something productive
And home Reno’s make sense for many

Often people have no time to get house maintenance done

This way they can do these things in their down time
And increase the liveability / value of their home
At the same time

Exactly. Stay home. Don't care to watch tv, but stay home.

Even with curb side pick up, you are going out for non-essential items. If you are in an accident, for instance, you are potentially putting others at risk.

I ordered a few things from Staples this morning for curbside pick up. You arrive at the store, call the number on your email confirmation then wait for an employee to bring it out and dump it in your trunk.

Have to disagree with you. The strong advice is clear and simple - stay home. No need to look for loop holes around the advice.

Well, my local Lowes closed the doors at 2pm today and left a security guard to tell everyone they will be closed for the next 2 weeks.
