Is Home Depot and Lowe’s open today for Easter 2021? You’ll also be asking if the shops near you are available if you need supplies for a home or gardening project. We have both good and bad news to share. Today, Lowe’s will be closed, but Home Depot will be open.
The majority of Home Depot locations are open on Easter Sunday.
Today is Easter, so many Home Depot stores will be open. Home Depot stores are only closed for Thanksgiving and Christmas, according to their website.
“Shop hours can differ on other holidays and at other seasonal or store events,” according to the website. Please double-check your nearest store’s hours before going.”
Heavy met with a spokesperson from Home Depot, who reported that most stores will be open, but that “customers should consult with their nearest Home Depot as hours can differ by location.”
