As of Monday morning, March 16, 2020, Lowe’s stores in the United States have sold out of sandbags due to the high demand for them in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to prevent flooding in homes and businesses, many people are turning to sandbags as a way to protect against rising waters.
Lowe’s is not the only store that has sold out of sandbags. Home Depot and Menards have also sold out of their stock of sandbags. With the demand for sandbags so high, it is unclear when stores will be able to restock their shelves.
If you are in need of sandbags, your best bet is to check with your local hardware store or contact your city or county government to see if they have any available.
