By the look of it, Americans have been rolling up their sleeves during quarantine and tackling those home-improvement projects. And investors seem equally eager to build a foundation for big gains on the resurgence of DIY.

With people spending a lot more time indoors, it’s no surprise home-improvement retailers Home Depot and Lowe’s have seen a huge boost to sales—and their stocks—in the past several months.

On Tuesday, Home Depot posted impressive second-quarter earnings, with profits soaring 24.5% year over year to $4.3 billion, while sales came in at $38.1 billion. And Bank of America analysts believe it “will not be the last of [Home Depot]’s strong run,” they wrote Wednesday. Lowe’s, meanwhile, posted a 30% surge in revenue for the quarter on Wednesday, with profits jumping a massive 68.7% from the year-earlier quarter, to $2.8 billion.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The old Kountry Kitchen is gone, in its place just an empty lot, but one that will serve as the foundation for a revitalized Kountry Kitchen and event center.

After a January fire, the restaurant is planning to come back bigger and better than ever, but it may take longer before we see it up and running again.

Kountry Kitchen says it hopes to be in full swing by next spring, but the owners know that may be a little ambitious during a pandemic.

“The past Kountry Kitchen was a two-story building right there on the corner,” Regina Marsh, a spokesperson for Kountry Kitchen, said. “The new building will be a building that goes from one side of the lot to the other.”
