"Our ability to support communities with essential goods and services during this pandemic is thanks to our outstanding, dedicated associates," said Marvin Ellison, Lowe's president and CEO. "We want to provide our teams with a much-deserved day off to spend Easter Sunday with their families and loved ones and recharge.”

According to Ellison, the home improvement retailer is taking steps to ensure that hourly associates will not lose scheduled hours or see a reduction in pay due to the closing.

“I want to personally thank our 300,000 associates who have helped families stay safely at home. Their actions are nothing short of heroic,” Ellison said.

This announcement follows Lowe’s previous responses to COVID-19, including temporarily increasing wages through the month of April and providing a special payment for hourly associates.

"We continue to listen to our associates' and customers' feedback and make necessary adjustments to help keep everyone in our stores safe during this unprecedented time," Ellison said.
