Elgin Mills location in Richmond Hill at about 9:45 am this morning had a pretty long line-up outside, saw it as I was driving by after leaving the Costco there. Not Costco-level long, but maybe 20+ people I think.

Want to know as well. I didn't go but did drive pass one around 2pm today. Couldn't see if or where's line up, but the parking lot looked quite full, seemed more full than pre-pandemic normal. The previous blockage setup on the parking lot for curb-side pickup seemed to be all gone. So I'd imagine either a long line-up outside or crowded inside. I'd wait at least a couple days, perhaps go during early morning weekday.

Drove past the HD at Dundas and Winston Park Drive late this morning and didn't see any line up at all. Lots of cars in the parking lot.

Haven’t been ...

But YES it will be the NEW Normal of how stores are allowed to operate ... esp in Ontario
(Seeing as your RFD Locator says Toronto )

6 feet spacing for Physical Distancing ... and controlled capacity for # of Customers allowed in the store

Often with one way aisles and a “circuit” from front door to the cashiers marked by arrows etc

Expect to see this in force for MONTHS to come

Plus some stores are also gonna implement a MASK REQUIRED POLICY to further protect their staff & premises from coughing & sneezing “spittlely” Customers

Yes just like grocery stores. Self checkout was quick with cashiers giving a helping hand. Cashing out was very quick.

I'm still waiting for my curbside pickup order to be processed from over 3 weeks ago. I ordered items for curbside pickup a week after that and those were ready for pickup in just a few days after. Items were and have been in stock. Can't seem to be able to call in or get a text response back; online chat button doesn't appear for me during business hours.

Getting frustrated at this point.

I'm also waiting for my curbside pickup order. I ordered it 3 weeks ago.

I decided to send them an email, but in the Home Depot Canada website there is only an option to send them an SMS text message. So I did and I got an automated reply:
"Thank you for messaging The Home Depot Online Support. At this time we are experiencing higher than normal volumes. An agent will be with you within 7 days. You may also call us at 1-800-628-0525 for assistance."
WTF? An agent may reply to my message within 7 DAYS????
OR,
Call them on the phone --- possibly wasting 1 hour, or more, on hold.

Honestly, if you guys got your order from Home Depot, you are lucky.

And I won't shop here again... LOL

Lowe's near me has way less choice brand wise, and the things they do have are usually way more expensive than home depot. I much prefer home depot for almost anything tool wise.

To each their own.

I find that Lowe's sells brands that HD does not and vise versa. Prices are about the same. My parents remodelled our basement with parts mostly from Lowe's and I think it looks good. I really do try to support Lowe's since they haven't been having such a good time in Canada.

Edit: are you talking about the Lowe's near the parkway or the one at the Boardwalk?
