Drive-By Economics: Home Depot

Lets keeping adding to the grassroots economics reporting. What are people seeing out there this weekend?

My report: I was at Home Depot in San Diego today and it was emptier than I have ever seen it before. More staff than customers in many aisles, and said staff had clearly been told to chase down customers and be helpful. Was unnerving being asked if I needed help by so many previously scarce Home Depot employees.

Other reports, either way?
