Home Depot ships air filters, masks to areas with poor air quality
June 8 (Reuters) -Home Depot Inc HD.N on Thursday said it was shipping supplies of air filters, respirator masks, box fans and air scrubbers to meet increased demand in areas impacted by poor air quality, as smoke from Canadian wildfires engulfs the U.S. East Coast.
Hundreds of forest fires continued to burn across much of Canada as the country sees its worst-ever start to the wildfire season, which has pushed smoke into the eastern United States, covering several cities with a thick, yellow haze.
Schools across the region canceled outdoor activities and companies told employees to work from home, while health officials in more than a dozen states have urged millions of residents to stay indoors.
Target Corp TGT.N also said its contactless order pick-up service called "Drive Up" may be turned off at locations with poor air quality. Customers can check their Target mobile application to confirm if the services were available at their local store, the company added.
