MOORESVILLE, N.C., March 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Lowe's Companies, Inc. (NYSE: LOW) today announced all stores in the United States and Canada will be closed on Easter Sunday, April 4, to show the home improvement retailer's appreciation for more than 300,000 associates' continued dedication.
"As we near the one-year anniversary of the pandemic's impact, we continue to recognize and thank our more than 300,000 associates who have demonstrated, again and again, their passion and commitment to serving our customers," said Marvin R. Ellison, Lowe's president and CEO. "Easter Sunday is an opportunity to spend time with loved ones. As we did last year, we'll work to ensure associates have the opportunity to make up scheduled hours to avoid any loss in pay resulting from this well-deserved day away from work."
In January, Lowe's announced its seventh bonus or special payment for its hourly front-line associates with an additional $80 million in discretionary bonuses. That seventh pandemic-related bonus brought the company's total commitment to associates to more than $900 million. The company has invested nearly $1.3 billion in COVID-related support for its associates, communities and store safety since the pandemic began.
Lowe's is currently hiring more than 50,000 seasonal and full-time retail associates, building on the more than 90,000 associates hired into permanent roles over the past year. Job seekers can visit jobs.lowes.com/spring or text "JOBS" to LOWES (56937) to learn about nearby opportunities and apply.
