ALL HOME DEPOT STORES IN BROWARD TO STAY OPEN AROUND THE CLOCK; STORES TO MAINTAIN PRE-HURRICANE LUMBER PRICES DESPITE SOARING WHOLESALE COSTS
 ATLANTA, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The Home Depot today announced that all of its six stores in Broward County, Fla., will remain open around the clock until further notice.
 Its stores in Dade County will remain open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., in accordance with curfew restrictions in that county.
 Overall, a total of 13 Home Depot stores are now operating in South Florida.
 Of the five stores still closed, two are expected to reopen shortly. Those two are located at 1650 N.E. Miami Gardens Drive, and 5500 N.W. 167th St. Three stores will be closed for an indefinite period of time. They are located at 16051 S. Dixie Hwy.; 12700 N. Kendall Drive; and 19400 S.W. 106th Ave.
 In addition, as a public service, the company also announced that it will maintain pre-hurricane lumber prices despite nearly 40 percent increases in wholesale costs in this product category since last week. The price freeze is in effect at all Home Depot stores in South Florida and the metro New Orleans area.
 The Home Depot is shipping massive amounts of lumber, building materials and emergency supplies from its distribution centers and stores around the country into South Florida and metro New Orleans.
