Ready for recovery: Lowe’s and Home Depot hire now ahead of Spring
News from Reno Gazette-Journal:

The North Carolina-based home improvement retailer will open a new store in Legends at Sparks Marina this week. Nationally, it is hiring 40,000 seasonal workers for its 1,725 stores in time for the warmer months ahead.

Earlier this month, Home Depot announced it would hire 70,000 across the U.S. including 200 here in Northern Nevada.
