Home-improvement and hardware stores thrive as residents take on projects

We got a sense of how some Americans have been spending their time and money during lockdown Tuesday when Home Depot reported quarterly results. Same-store sales were up more than 6%, and revenue was up around 7%.

In much of the country, hardware and garden stores have been deemed essential, so while people have been staying home, they’ve taken on nonessential projects — like sprucing up their homes. And that’s been good for independent hardware and home-supply stores.

When film and TV production shut down in Pittsburgh back in March, assistant director Jon Madeiros was out of work. So he decided to retile his front entryway and turn his attic into a yoga room. 

“It keeps my mind active. And it keeps my hands active,” he said.

He’s spent around $5,000 on supplies over the past couple of months. Hardware stores have been busy keeping up with demand from DIYers

Non-Profit L.A. Kitchen, Which Served Elderly, to Cease Operations This Week

Robert Egger announced today that non-profit L.A. Kitchen will permanently close its doors on November 1 because it was unable to balance enough philanthropic contribution and income to meet its expenses. Egger brought his DC Kitchen concept to LA in 2013, which recycles excess prepared foods from restaurants and businesses primarily for the elderly, while offering kitchen training programs.

Eater spoke with Egger about L.A. Kitchen’s closing, and he cited hostility when attempting to work with Los Angeles’ Department of Aging. The key to L.A. Kitchen’s success relied on securing contracts with the Department of Aging to produce thousands of meals. When in operation, L.A. Kitchen bought reduced-priced food and employed graduated from the training programs. Egger notes that L.A. Kitchen procured a few contracts, some which produced 4,000 meals a week for Los Angeles residents over the age of 65.

Egger also recruited some notable restaurant owners on L.A.

Restaurant Review: Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar in Times Square

GUY FIERI, have you eaten at your new restaurant in Times Square? Have you pulled up one of the 500 seats at Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar and ordered a meal? Did you eat the food? Did it live up to your expectations?

Did panic grip your soul as you stared into the whirling hypno wheel of the menu, where adjectives and nouns spin in a crazy vortex? When you saw the burger described as “Guy’s Pat LaFrieda custom blend, all-natural Creekstone Farm Black Angus beef patty, LTOP (lettuce, tomato, onion + pickle), SMC (super-melty-cheese) and a slathering of Donkey Sauce on garlic-buttered brioche,” did your mind touch the void for a minute?

Did you notice that the menu was an unreliable predictor of what actually came to the table? Were the “bourbon butter crunch chips” missing from your Almond Joy cocktail, too? Was your deep-fried “boulder” of ice cream
