If you’re looking to do some post-holiday shopping for household items or need to grab a tool at the last minute, you’re in luck. Home Depot and Lowes are both staying open for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
But keep in mind that if you need to visit either store before ringing in 2021, get there earlier in the day. All Lowe’s and Home Depot locations nationwide close early on December 31 at 6 p.m. Both home improvement chains will also open a little later than normal on New Year’s Day.
Here’s what you need to know:
Lowe’s Closes Early on December 31 & Opens at 9 a.m. on New Year’s Day
Lowe’s serves approximately 18 million customers at its more than 2,200 stores across the United States and Canada each week, according to the company website. Each of those locations is closing earlier than normal on New Year’s Eve to allow its employees extra hours to celebrate. All Lowe’s stores close at 6 p.m. on December 31, a Lowe’s corporate communications spokesperson confirmed to Heavy via email.
Lowe’s stores typically open early in the morning around 6 a.m. on weekdays. But on Friday, January 1, 2021, shoppers have to wait a little later to visit the home improvement store.
